Very good dim sum, with the trollies and everything. Come early (noon) to avoid the queues. They even do a smaller selection of dim sum in the evenings now, though without the trollies (about 14 dishes, including pork and prawns in beancurd skin, grilled pork dumplings, rice and pork steamed in lotus leaf, har gao, and prawn or vegetable cheung fun). I think the portions may also be smaller in the evening — most of the things we ordered only had two pieces, and I'm sure I remember the lunchtime portions having three or four pieces per order. This would make sense, since they probably get smaller groups in the evening.
Very big — seats a few hundred when all the floors are open.
