One of the few places to get good dimsum west of Monterey Park and south of San Francisco where the more delicious and authentic dimsum places are found.

The usual array of Dim Sum dishes are here, including many variations of Shu Mai, chicken feet, turnip cake, ribs, BBQ duck and pork in a variety of wrappings, and desserts galore. The winner at this restaurant (if you like this sort of thing) is a dish of wrapped noodle around meat (shrimp, beef or BBQ) called tsang fun which means "long noodle". This dish is often too chewy or the noodles aren't as palatable at other restaurant, but this place gets the texture just right.

The 3 of us ate to our heart's content for $30, and parking is something like.. $0.75 an hour - absolute great deal/value. There is always a wait to get in, but the hostesses are excellent multi-taskers and work at lightning speed.
