This place is always packed and clientelle is mostly Chinese. The portion sizes are exactly the same as other dim sum restaurants in the city. Service is acceptable (if you expect elegant, attentive service from a Chinese restaurant, you're in the wrong place).
Dishes are tasty, not too laden with msg. Prices on the higher side, but this is one of the higher-end Chinese restaurants on par with Kirin, Sun Sui Wai etc. Recommended.

We've tried this restaurant 3 times. The first time was really good - the rice tables were around $20 and were enough for two people. Then they went up to $25 and the portions seemed to shrink. The last meal included a greasy, flavourless fried noodle. The chef seems to have lost heart.
Service is OK if rather impersonal. Several times, I seemed to be staring at an empty beer glass, wondering if someone was going to ask me if I wanted another.

Casual, fun atmosphere...if a bit noisy. Menu is varied, but feels slightly lacklustre and tries to cover too many bases. I had the blue crab special salad (good) and the duck confit Shepards Pie (only so-so). Friends had the burger (pretty good) and the pork chops (better). Good value as most of the entrees were around the $20 mark. Perhaps a triffle overrated, though, considering the reputation of the head chef.
