Cristóbal’s Rating: VERY MEH
- Edible Cantonese dim sum, pushed around with carts (a rarity these days)
- In the Vietnamese side of Beltway 8, next to a 100% Vietnamese mall that would pass as any shopping center in Ho Chi Minh City
- Cantonese seafood dinner banquet style downstairs
This is one of the earlier large scale dim sum/Cantonese seafood restaurants in Houston’s Bellaire Chinatown, situated at a corner of the Vietnamese shopping center misleadingly named Hong Kong City Market. The food is mediocre level of acceptable, serving as a large venue for entertaining large parties or providing an atmosphere for a bustling dim sum brunch. While the dim sum is no where near excellent, the restaurant offers passing quality of a good variety of dim sum must-haves. The exterior is an impressive Chinese style structure surrounded with an artificial lake either overgrown with a jungle of lotus leaves or eerily still with an unnatural bluish hue.
