"Skip the chow mein" and explore the "great variety" of Chinese dishes at this "reliable old standard" in the heart of Chinatown – like seafood selected from "big tanks" and, during the day, "old-fashioned authentic dim sum" ; you'll have to order it from the "brisk" servers since there are "no carts" , and the "crowded" dining room is as "no-frills" as the service, but at least prices are "fair."

This place is really good! It’s a dim sum restaurant but instead of the people rolling the carts around you just check everything off on a list. The flavors are super good here! It’s a Michelin Star restaurant and even President Obama has eaten here! We met Tim Cook when we ate here!

Food was good. Poor service, very untimely waiters, staff did not seem too interested in customer. Need better; payment system, staff training, customer service, and cleanliness. If you can find a better place to eat in Chinatown would recommend it. Call ahead to another place for reservation. Just because Obama got take out here does not mean that they have good food or service.

EXTREMELY rude, our food was substandard and they expected a tip afterwards. When we didn't get one he told us not to come back...😠 very angry right now. I'd give them begatijve stars if I could.
