  • My wife and I go here regularly (my wife's Cantonese). The quality of food is about the best Chinese food you're going to get without going to Toronto. It's almost all authentic Cantonese/Hong Kong style food. They've got the largest selection of dim sum in Hamilton. However, compared to other larger urban centers, it's still a short dim sum menu.
    In particular, their chicken feet and tripe are quite good, but the chicken feet are still not as good as Toronto or Vancouver. That being said, their sauce is a bit unique...it's got a bit of a spicy kick, which is nice.
    In general, if you're in Hamilton, looking for dim sum, and price is not your main motivator, check out Jade Garden. If price is your main motivator, but still don't want westernized Chinese food, check out Harvest Moon.

  • Order: Lots of stuff. We eat both there and Harvest Moon regularly.

  • Went here during a get together with friends and found this place to be a great authentic dine-in place.

    The staff were friendly and the food was tasty. I particularily liked this one dish which was mainly snow-pea leaves (that dish was a bit pricey though considering it was mostly vegetables). The seafood they served here was pretty good as well.

  • Order: Wonton Soup, various other dishes, snow pea leave dish

  • We were going to Garden Summit in Mississauga for X-mas dim sum but the day got away from us. Very delicious but not as good as our 1st choice certainly. Have to know what you're ordering as they don't trolley by like other larger places. Again, it's very good. Will go back.

  • Order: dim sum, steamed rice, tea, Mango drink

  • Dim Sum was excellent and certainly worth going back for, though I prefer Iron Chef as its probably the best Dim Sum I've experianced in Hamilton. The Dim Sum here is served a little bit differently as well, so you may not end up ordering exactley the same things you've had somewhere else. The dinner was nothing special, though it was quite good and very filling. Service was over-all very good considering I had a cantonese speaking friend with me (which takes out a lot of the stress of not understand your server). The enviroment was OK @ best, very quite when I whent for supper (@6pm we where the only two there) and lunch was very busy (which I like better). It was a bit dirty both times I whent, especialy the washrooms.

  • Order: Dim Sum (Lunch)/Orange Beef (Dinner Menu)

  • We come here very often on the weekend for dim sum and we always order entrees to go with it cause they're both so good! The waitresses are not pushy, though it would be nice if they came to check on us once in a while so we don't have to flag them down for water or anything else. There is such a variety of food to choose from, you just want to try everything. This is definitely one of the best chinese restaurants i've been to! The dim sum is reasonably priced and we always order too much and eat till we're stuffed.

  • Order: dim sum, seafood/veggies in taro nest

  • Dim Sum is relatively cheap and affordable. The other menu I've chosen is good too. Only one time I had a squashed fly on one of the meals and they apologize afterwards when I showed to them. They did not charge me, which was great.

    I would suggest if anyone who wants to go for lunch, go on weekdays as they are quieter than weekends.

  • Order: Dim Sum, Rice Noodle, Fried Rice, Soup, etc.

  • Food is fantastic-fresh, authentic and good value. Complimentary jasmine tea and dessert (sometimes)plus friendly, efficient service helps makes this a great family restaurant. Decor is basic but inoffensive. Highly recommend.

  • Order: Have eaten many things here, many times and am never disappointed. Best hot and sour soup. Ginger thai fried rice is delicious. Also good: sizzling beef platter, baby bok choy, braised tofu, crab, seafood and vegetables in taro basket, many great dishes...
