"Came here 6 years ago and it is still my Chinatown favorite for Dim Sum."
4 out of 5 Star Review on Yelp Joyce F of Kalihi, HI 4/3/2013
"Come here for dim sum! There is an a la carte menu to order off of though I never have. I've seen some dishes and it looks good though. The carts come around pretty often. There is a wide selection and delicious food.... Key words: char siu or shrimp look fun, turnip cake, seafood dumpling, mochi pork, sticky rice (in the leaves, not the bowl), rice soup, chive and shrimp fried dumpling, boiled choi sum, any dumplings or hash. I know it's a lot. But it's dim sum, you need a ton. The boiled choi sum is expensive (I think the bottom / highest price) but so worth it. It's simple, covered with an oyster sauce and a nice way to balance all the fried meat."
