    Had a very enjoyable dinner here, friendly service and reasonable prices. Very close to FIT and it looks like the word is out since by 7 PM most of the tables were occupied. I recommend reservations for prime time during weeknights. We enjoyed everything we had, the salted egg squared was perhaps a bit heavy with the batter but otherwise these were reliable versions of many traditional Cantonese dishes.

    I went here with some of my good friends to celebrate my friend’s going away party, and it was a blast to eat here.

    Not gonna lie, it was a bit difficult to find this place. The signage is small, and many of my friends (myself included) passed by this place, so they could improve from that aspect.

    The service was great, however. The servers were attentive, considerate, and also provided me with hot water to relieve my strained vocal cords. I also appreciated the ambience of the restaurant, giving a homey vibe. It may be a dim sum eatery, but you will not be bombarded by people with food carts asking you if you want their delicacies.

    Let’s get to the food. Overall, I found each of the dishes to be quite tasty. The portions were a bit small, but since we were a big group, we had the purchasing power to try a lot of different dishes. I’d recommend going with a big group or having a glucose guardian to fund this meal.

    My favorites were the pineapple bun, sesame bun, pineapple orange chicken, har gow, and crispy fried rice. These dishes were savory, plentiful, and cooked with consideration for our flavor palates. I paired these dishes with sambal (chili jam), which heightened the flavors in these dishes. My only improvement is that I wish we had more, but the quality of the food overall is delicious.

    Would I recommend this place? Absolutely! It’s hard finding affordable dim sum delicacies in Manhattan, and this place is definitely a hidden gem. I would just improve their portion sizes and making their restaurant easily findable, but the food here is definitely a must-try!

    Solid dim sum and attentive service. Low key modern vibe. The mozzarella shrimp rolls were fun to eat, I never had that before. I'll be going back to try more options.

    Had to visit this new Cantonese restaurant serving dim sum all day after hearing it had opened recently.

    The first thing I noticed as we sat down at the table were proper chopsticks (not throw away twigs) and honest to gosh rice bowls, not just a small flat plate that practically all Chinese restaurants in North America insist on only providing. Which is absurd when you use chopsticks. You get an extra star just for that touch!

    The decor is interesting, a lot of clocks, modern and comfortable. Noise level was low as the restaurant wasn't too full when we went. It's also a reasonable sized space as it's 2 combined units. And there's a sign outside to point you to enter by the right-hand door.

    The selection of dim sum dishes is reasonable, the only major one that's missing is woo gok. It's a staple in UK/HK dim sum restaurants, but very hard to come by in North America, for some reason. Please add and I'll come back forever and ever! 😉

    Its comparable to Tim Ho Wan, but slightly more expensive on some of the dishes. But worth the premium versus the other average dim sum restaurants.

    One of the dishes similar to THW is the crispy baked char siu bau. Though it's not stuffed full and quite airy. Similarly with the cheese pineapple bun. Normally, I might feel a little aggrieved by the lack of filling but we over ordered so I was actually relieved in this instance.

    Overall, I liked all the dim sum items we had and we also ordered the HK style sweet and sour pork. Deep fried pork pieces dredged in corn flour and covered in sweet and sour sauce. Much crunchier than the battered version.

    There's quite a collection of other Cantonese dishes (unlike THW) and I'll have to try more of them next time, just maybe not as many all at once!

    The service was good, but because it's still in soft opening mode there were a few things that needed tightening up. A spoon was missed off our table, only noticed they were laid out on other tables near the end of the meal. That would have made eating the soup dumplings easier! The other criticism I had was that the tea didn't arrive until after 3 dishes had been served. That really should have been the first thing to arrive. Since the tea is served piping hot and takes awhile to cool down enough to drink. Having said that they did take 10% off the bill because of the soft opening, which was nice of them, but didn't feel that was necessary.

    Other than that I did enjoy the food and will be back. Before all the other Chinese people realise how good it is and swamp the place! 😋

    They serve both creative and traditional dim sum. I thought the deep fried har kow (prawn dumplings) was interesting (we liked the spices around it and finished all of it😂). Flavors are pretty good, would hope that the purple dumplings (veggie dumplings) wrappers could be a little thinner. Soft opening promo of 10% off was a nice touch, they also seem to be doing 2 dim sum for $10 on weekdays. They also have a good selection of entrée dishes and tea. Would try the entree next time.
