not bad for coffeeshop dimsum

easy ordering via self service ticking on the order sheet.order 1 shrimp dumpling , 1 siew mai, 1 xiao long bao, one mango prawn roll and 2 porridge w century egg ($1.50 for porridge). the porridge is quite small. :p\the shrimp dumpling skin a bit thick, and one broke in the basket ...the xiaolong bao is not so bad, but skin also a bit thick

noticed the coffeeshop store tenants seem to be hogging the tables inside for their own usage (pluck vegs and store stuff) and we noted about 5 tables taken up.. hehe. btw the chicken rice stall in this coffeeshop seems very popular! and smells good. will try it next time ;p

value for money

Have been there twice. It is hard not to compare with restaurant when you dine here. This dim sum place is located in a rather run down coffee shop, and quite a quite neighbourhood area. However, the food quality, the service is definitely comparable and even better than most reataurant. Most important is, under $10 will give you a very satisfactory meal. The "snow-mountain bun" is not in the menu, and sometimes is not available, so, you got to ask. It taste much better than "char-siew bun". The "carrot and dried scallop dumpling" is a showcase of how much effort they've put in to make a good looking and tasty food. It is unlike many other dim-sum place where they just simply mix the meat and seasoning, and put them into some out of shape object but still call it dim-sum.

Very satisfy with this place, but I think some food can be done better too. For example, "xiao-long bun", peking duck are just below average. Seems like they could master Cantonese food but not others.
