This place serves the decent dim sum at the best price, period. They use fresh ingredients, not mention generous amount of the more expensive ingredients, like prawns and scallops are added into the dim sum, coupled with the fact that the dim sums are very flavourful without assaulting your senses with bulk loads of salt and MSG. What is there not to love about their dim sum? And at only about $4.50 a set, it is a real steal.
Though with such good dim sum at such low price, the service and ambience bound to suffer. Many people realize that this is the place to go for good dim sum without hurting the wallet, so the place is always crowded on weekends, and thus dining at your own sweet time is not option. You will find that the service staff will be eager to see you off (to the extent of bringing the bill over even before the dessert is finished!) in preparation for the next customer. The service crew only deliver so-so service. Prompt response, but without the smile and the warmth and have the tendency to make blunders.
Though a recent visit for dinner, I found out that it seems like the manager had changed, since the staffs had become way friendlier than in the past, thus making my meal at there a delightful one (The food, especially the kurobuta pork and Pumpkin Puree with coconut ice cream are excellent). I guess the quiet dinner time, way less hectic than lunch time, makes room for some decent service. So I went there again in the afternoon and realized that the service is kind of meh.
Don't mind going back if I want to pamper my wallet without compromising on the well-being of my taste buds ... okay, maybe my blood pressure may go up a bit due to service.
