Went for Sunday breakfast at 9am. Got in without a wait, although there was a long line by the time we left. Great view. Traditional dim sum trolleys. Excellent food and service. A bit pricey.

We came here to have breakfast. The service was quick and the food was great. They had so much selection and I loved trying new food. The desert was so delirious.

street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
