You have to try hard to be this bad.
First off, the service. Started off with a long wait to be seated even though we had reservations, we then had to wait another 15 minutes for the first visit by a server. Water appeared on our table 10 minutes later, drinks took another 15 minutes... you get the picture.
Secondly, the food. How does a pie place run out of ice cream before 8 pm? Seriously. And both types of ice cream (regular and soy) to boot! The next item I ordered was also MIA although I had to wait until my table-mates received their dishes to find out the bad news.
Finally, and this is perhaps the worst part, they overcharged us on the bill. Twice. There was an extra $20 on the bill the first time and an extra $10 on it the second time.
I'll never go again.

as others have said, the decor/ ambiance is beautiful and a huge improvement over the former restaurant at this location (the Flamingo). Line ups are common during peak dim sum times.
Food at dim sum is great. I've been about 5 times now and am always happy. Service is decent. But did I mention that the food is great? There's no dim sum cart, you order off a menu which means the food is more likely to be hot.
I'll be back.

Been here many times (10+) and more often for take out/ delivery.
Food is almost always good/ great. I'm usually happy with the service so I'm surprised to see some negative comments here. It's one of the friendlier HK/ Chinese restaurants I've been too and I don't speak Chinese. Ambiance is OK - more like a place to eat rather than a place to spend the evening.
I'll be back both for eat-in and take out.
