    Food was unfortunately cold and dry at delivery. Wait time for food was taking long between every order there was what felt like 30+ min. Waiter was great seemed overworked and only one taking orders. But can see he was trying his best not to show his overwhelmed situation and kept a smile and humor to lighten the situation

    We have came here MANY times, and this time had to rank at the very bottom. I typically only do reviews when it’s positive… but this was a visit to make us not want to go here again. Our server was nice - but not attentive. The menu had changed and the food was a waste… we hardly ate. We had to continue to ask for water, condiments, our food was really delayed, and then lack luster. Super bug bummer to celebrate our anniversary dinner and to have that crummy of an experience.

    Been there quite a few times. Always been satisfied. This was our least favorable experience. My entree came out first, my wife’s came out 5-7 minutes later, and my daughter’s entree about 10 minutes after that. My wife ordered her usual, but it was cooked differently and one ingredient was left out. It was as if they had a new cook staff. I will give them another try at some point, maybe it was just an off night, but this was a disappointing experience.

    Extremely bland. General Tsao chicken fried within an inch of its life with what tasted like old oil. Music was really loud and our waiter just stood at the pickup window for 15 minutes instead or checking on tables.

    The soup dumplings were delicious. The wine list here is terrible. No white wine choices:rose, chardonnay and another sweet choice. We had water. Main dishes were ok. I would say this is an average/adequate spot for Chinese. It will hit your Chinese urge.

    What a wonderful experience. The food was so flavorful and the service outstanding. It is a true gem and somewhere you must try and you will want to become a regular. The kung pao shrimp with noodles...outstanding. And the cheesecake egg rolls. Wow.

    They literally say their soup dumplings are famous. I guess they gave themselves this title because I have tried them on two different occasions and thought they were not good. The last time I tried them was on Christmas day. It was literally the worst soup dumpling I've ever had. There was no soup in them and the dough was hard and chewy. They did not taste fresh at all. Very disappointed. The server gave us our hot tea in plastic cups which melted the plastic. We refused to accept and they served it in an actual teapot which was tiny but should have been done in the first place. I don't recommend this place unless you like very americanized Chinese and average to below average service. Hand pulled noodles and salt and pepper shrimp were pretty tasty however.

    I think they have changed how they make their dishes. My husband mentioned the spicy house fried rice tasted different and so did my regular general tao’s plate. Therefore, I was not satisfied with the food. This was the first time I was disappointed. We have gone here often. However, the service was fantastic!

    It was disappointing after having been here so many times in the past. They don’t have a veggie menu anymore. On top of it the delicious dumplings have so much food color in them that you can taste the color. Service was slow and forgetful. Don’t think there is anything left here for us to come back to.

    For a Friday night it was DEAD, no reason to have a resy. The biggest issue with this place is the service, from hostess to bar to waitstaff. I never say this, but as a former waitress I feel they are well aware and give 0%. Our waitress was sooo slow and we were her only table. She and everyone we interacted with were almost annoyed we were there interrupting their social time or making them work. Not 1 smile in 2.5 hours. Food wasn’t bad but also not great. Everything came out not very hot ( temperature ) more warm-ish. I again, feel this falls on service as it means our food sat waiting too long before it came to table. We mainly ordered dimsum and various cocktails…assorted dumplings including soup. Management change is much needed here.

    Service was great. Hostess was nice, server was attentive. The food was terrible. Lacked taste, texture, and overall value. Mongolian beef tasted tough, as if it was microwaved. Dan Dan noodles were so bland. The pork belly fried rice had a few pieces of pork belly IF you call it that. Not worth the price. You're paying for the location and ambiance.

    We have been here several times before it’s actually a favorite in our house however the service and food quality yesterday was HORRIBLE we waiting for 15mins before a server came to our table to greet us and to take our drink order. We waited for food for 1hour 10mins as we watched everyone around us who was seated after us get there food. When the food finally came out it was cold and our order was WRONG. The bad part was several other people had complained as well. Not sure if it was just an off day for them or what!

    In search of some good soup dumplings and Szechuan beef, I thought Sum Dang Good Chinese would be the perfect way to satisfy those cravings and showcase the hip ambiance of Bishop Arts and Trinity Groves to my visiting friends. Our party of 3 arrived on a Wednesday evening and approached the host who didn't verify our reservation but sat us promptly on the outside patio. Our server Alicia kindly recommended some of her favorite drinks and dishes, informed us about the option to upcharge for top-shelf booze, and warned us that the frozen drinks were unavailable. After that, things went downhill fast. When she came back to take our order, we requested 2 cocktails and one juice beverage; the cocktails were very syrupy and barely tasted of alcohol. We then ordered a few appetizers including the scallion pancake (which was so over-fried and solidified that it was almost difficult to eat), the edamame (meh), the soup dumplings (pretty good), pork bao (good). For entrees, we ordered Szechuan beef and were warned they may be out of beef (how can you be out of beef?!), so we asked for pork instead; we were brought Mushu Pork, which we declined to eat after multiple times having the wrong order brought out and the confused wait staff claiming there was an issue with the kitchen. We ordered Pineapple Pork Fried Rice, of which every bite was mushy and tasted like greasy bacon. We also ordered the Ma-pu Tofu, which was not bad but not great either. Multiple other tables around us left due to not being served or waiting forever for their food. We wanted to love this place and the staff seemed nice enough, but it was a disappointing experience and we will not be back again.

    Terrible service. Had a reservation , we were seated after 20 mins of standing in line at the hostess stand. Nobody came to us for water / drinks for next 20 mins. We had to call the manager who then took our order . We asked for Sauvignon blank and he got us 2 glasses of Pinot noir. No tableware , plates . Our server didn’t check on us at all . It was just chaos . The food was ok. Not returning .

    Terrible service! Walked in-told them that we had a reservation- host never checked- she just sat us at a table. We sat for 30 min and no one came to our table. Finally another customer said we’d have to “flag down” a waiter to get service. Well, we did that…the server said “well this is not my table and I’m not sure whose it is, but I’ll take your order”. She took the order—but the food never came. We had to go find a manager-who apologized and brought our food out. Well later that night, we were both sick on the toilet from the food.

    Gave this place a try again and once again service failed. Everything was slow. The manager was occupied with his friends table giving them good service but not noticing we needed refills and we had finished our food. Our server got drink orders for table next to us and darted past us without checking on us as we needed the check and to go containers. We yelled and got her attention before she ran off. The food is just ok not great so won’t be visiting again.

    The food was good and it was a nice atmosphere to enjoy a dinner at! It took us almost 45 minutes to get our food after ordering but we were not in a rush. We did watch two tables get their food before we did that had sat after us. the waitress did a good job and our cups were never empty and table was kept cleaned! Overall good time, good food, and will visit again!

    I went here with friends on a Monday night. We chose to sit outside since the weather was nice. But after we were seated, we were completely ignored. After about 20 minutes, I walked into the restaurant and informed them that we hadn’t even been given water. Our server came out with water glasses and was very apologetic. She was friendly and attentive. But that was not enough to save the evening. The kitchen didn’t prepare 2 of the 10 or so items we ordered. They ended up bringing one of them, which was wrong and sent back. And the other didn’t come out at all. They ended up comping out our appetizers, and our server really did do her best under the circumstances. But it was far from a great experience.

    Unfortunately I was very disappointed. Music was very loud. Service was fair at best. Our server was either inexperienced or overworked. Part of our order was wrong.The food was delivered to our table in a very disorganized fashion. And on and on. I wish I could be more positive, but nothing about the experience was.
