Though small, this atmospheric spot located in the heart of Chinatown features an open room with mostly large round tables covered with white tablecloths. A smaller room downstairs handles overflow. A wall of tanks filled with live fish is in the back, verifying the restaurant’s reputation for serving one of Chinatown’s most extensive seafood selections. Everything is cooked to order, so fried dishes arrive hot from the wok. A laminated picture menu helps you select from the extensive dim sum options. Dim sum items are mostly made to order, so no carts and few trays circulate.
