My boyfriend and I really wanted to eat dim sum, but live about an hour away from Chinatown, so we decided to take a chance on this restaurant, which was only 20 minutes away. The place was deserted, probably because it's hidden on the 2nd floor of the Raddison hotel. Anyway, we ordered the West Lake Beef Chowder, Szechuan dumplings in hot oil, stuffed eggplant dim sum, shu mai, and the steamed juicy buns. We're kind of Chinese food snobs (ie. we think PF Chang is ""fake""), but every single dish was excellent. The Szechuan dumplings had such a unique flavor that we were dipping the shu mai in the sauce.
Pros: Beautiful and clean restaurant, tasty food, fantastic alternative to Chinatown
Cons: Pricier than Chinatown, dim sum choices limited
