Was very disappointing to be charged $24 for sparkling water. It kept being refilled but we were never told there was a charge.

Probably could be interesting for visiting folks to try something different, if they were pretty open minded.

Having eaten here enough times to know several servers by name, I was terribly disappointed with the service on this occasion. Drink service was glacial paced. The duck salad was not tossed table side. Dishes where placed on the table without any explanation (fine for us, but not for our guests who had never eaten there) and we were presented with our check and never offered dessert! Y'all better get it together. The restaurant scene in HTX is too completive to withstand lackluster performance from a high end restaurant

Their dumplings were outstanding. The pork Szechuan dumplings were the best by far.

Food top notch as always. Very busy so service was a little off although food comes out fast, as per usual. The server did forget our drinks so I had to ask for that.

I’ve been a few times now. Food is always great, hostesses are very helpful; but my god the service is baaaaad. We’ve been when it wasn’t very busy at all and it wasn’t as bad, but still a little finicky. But also if you’re gonna be busy, maybe you should bring on more waiters and waitresses to accommodate for that

Last call.....Food was poor compared to previous visits. 3/5 this time and 5/5 last time. If it was too late should never have taken our reservation.

Maybe because we get there past 9pm, I feel the meal was rushed and items were not as fantastic as usual. It was still a good meal overall.

My expectations were very high, perhaps that is why I’m slightly disappointed. Fantastic ambience and service. Food presentation was delightful, but overall value for taste not what I had hoped for. Will give it another try and order something else and hopefully I’ll be more impressed!

It was our first visit to this restaurant and we really enjoyed the food. There was a lot of flavour in every dish. The DimSum is one of a kind. We were very lucky with our excellent waiter who was very kind and patient. We will certainly come back soon!

If your looking for real Dim Sum....this is not the place. Food was fair but not a traditional Dim Sum Restaurant.

The food is pretty good, this restaurant is not the best dim sum I've ever had, but I like the way it cooked is not too oily. I heard the ingredients are the top selected products, I can't taste it, but it makes me feels good. The service is not very well. We found there is a fly in the vinegar jar after we poured it on the shrimp, so the food is ruined, we told the server, the server has no apology for it, it looks like a normal thing for her. We are pretty upset because of not only the fly in the jar but also the server's attitude.

Wine list not updated and did not offer discount on other options that were 40% more. Slow service, not clearing our dirty plates away btwn courses. Would not come back. Not at all up to speed for ratings.

A very modern and minimalist decor, a bit loud for my tastes. The food is a bit bland if you like the original Chinese dishes. The service was good and the menu is extensive.
