I'm Chinese Asian. If you are looking for authentic Asian dimsum, this is not it, this will disappoint you.

Food wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either
The Vietnames Noodle Soup was this boring tiny little bowl of light broth with few pieces of chicken.

Pricey for CT's standard.

Staffs are nice.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, limited menu but food was lovely. Surrounding area is bit nerve racking & taxi is recommended to get there and back, no Wi-Fi, the staff where unable to call a cab for us & unhelpful with this in all aspects.

Lamb pot stickers ! Just to mention something. Everything we tried was great. We tried 2 times to enter and it was fully booked so you do need a reservation.

It had been a while, and after supper there on Friday evening we vowed not to leave it so long next time! Perfect, light parcels of delight. Good atmosphere on a wet Friday, packed, turning people away and they had a waiting list too. Its easy to get carried away and before you know it you have tried everything on the menu. Bliss.

Very authentic and delicious dim sum. Ranks with the best in Cape Town. Have eaten here three times in the last month! Also make very nice cocktails. Often very full so would recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment
