Smelled funny, almost like sewage when I walked in. They even tried to mask it with incense... made it worse. Food was too greasy. Could tell the dumplings were premade- not even warm. more

Got there at around 7pm and only sat down to eat at around 8.30pm... I was also just the one person on my own... The food was ok and tasty but the drinks were subpar to be honest. I only had a beer but from what I could see, the selection was small and the drinks didn't look like anything special.

As far as dim sum goes, it's just ok. Over priced and ok. Which isn't bad, just also not great.... more

I came here with 4 friends, and we were satisfied but not too pleased.


- Happy Hour all day on Sunday! The cocktails were varied in their alcoholic level (mine was significantly weaker than my friend's which tasted like it was mainly hard alcohol)

- The overall vibe of Dim Sum & cocktails is very fun & interesting

- We were given a table in a more private sector away from the main bar... more
