    Dim Sum the Old-School Pushcart Trolley Way

    Overall, the dim sum was just so-so. But it was cheap, which made the lunch a lot more palatable. There were only 3 items that were memorable.

    1) Roasted Duck ($18). This was juicy, succulent

    2) Prawn Rice Roll (most dim sum dishes are from $3 to $3.50), silky soft rice rolls with sweet crunchy prawns slathered with a soy marinade

    3) Century Egg Congee, the porridge was smooth and delicate. I loved the crackers on top.

    4) Ordinary: Siew Mai, Har Gow, Deep Fried Prawn Wrapped in Beancurd Skin, Roasted Pork and Bbq Pork, Steamed Glutinous Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf

    5) Not Good: Steamed Bbq Pork Buns, Steamed Yam Cake

      This place used to be good. But my last 2 trips there ended up leaving me less than satisfied. The food was lukewarm and it's hard to get a table.

      Not very child friendly, they sat us right next to the toilet entrace with a baby chair, which meant almost having the baby chair toppling over every time someone goes to the toilet and kicking the baby chair.

      Decor is very dated. Service is not with a smile but I guess the important thing is the food must be good.

        To be honest, I got a shock the 1st time I came here. The whole place looks rather faded and the carpets smelt musty. I came here on a friend's recommendation and was expecting the env to be something like crystal jade. And it's been a long time since I went to a dim sum place that has trolleys of dim sum pushed around.

        I came here on a weekday before for lunch and on a weekend for an early lunch. Be prepared to queue up on weekends during the peak lunch hours.

        The char siew bao and xiao long baos are normal. Not exactly fantastic. What I would recommend are the egg tarts, mango and almond puddings, pork ribs (!!!!), and the meat dishes. One thing about their food is that it is rather oily but it's okay to pig out once in a while. Just wash everything down with chinese tea.

        Prices are slightly above average. Not too shocking. But given the location this is not a place I would frequent too often.

        The main gripe I have is that the service is rather slow. My friends are I kept waiting for the trolleys to be pushed to our side. However the same old trolley kept coming. We feedback afew times to a staff member but no action was taken. In the end, it's faster to walk up to the trolley you're eyeing and just get what you want. The billing process is also very slow. It's faster to just approach them rather than wait for them to come to you. What was rather irritating and also funny to us is that the moment we finished eating, the trolleys we wanted before suddenly came up to our table.
