With a full parking lot outside and a packed front-of-house inside at only 10.00am, this fine dining Cantonese cuisine establishment is supposed to be one of the best in the area, famous for offering quality 'early-bird special' Dim Sum. This could be the reason why the place was jam packed full of retired seniors all trying to beat the 11.00 am deadline!!.....but then this scenario also applies to their main competitor - " Dragon Boat " down the road?!
All of their early bird special Dim Sum, up to large sizes are priced at $3.50. Our party of two ordered eight dishes to try. Quality was inconsistent, ranging from the excellent Shrimp dumpling Har-Gow, the deliciously spicy and generous filled Chiu-Chow dumpling, the puffy and juicy steamed BBQ Pork bun ( Char Siu Bao ), to the disappointing 'Cheung-Fun' - steamed rice noodle crepe with coarsely structured wrapper that lacked velvety smooth texture and the tough and under-done steamed chicken feet....etc.
With a huge and varied menu containing some very interesting and uncommon offerings, I think I will give it another chance based solely on the fact that some of dishes we ordered were indeed worthy of praise. However, next time, for sure we will scrutinize the menu more before placing our order.
