Fodor's Review

In a country where "Chinese cuisine" often means rice and vegetables bearing a suspicious resemblance to gallo pinto (the typical Costa Rican dish of beans and rice), Don Wang's authenticity is a treat. Cantonese cuisine is the mainstay—the owner comes from that region of China—but these folks will Szechuan it up a bit if you ask. Don Wang is known for its immensely popular dim sum, called desayuno chino, literally "Chinese breakfast." You can order it all day (bearing in mind that this place doesn't open until 11 am). The dining area is built around a stone garden and small waterfall.
