The stir fried radish cake with X.O. chilli sauce was delicious - we ended up ordering a second plate.

Steamed shrimp dumplings with bamboo shoots, $8

The shrimp dumplings (har gao) was not bad, the prawns within were huge and fresh. The skin could be a bit thinner and less sticky though. Also, I did not taste any bamboo shoots within. Perhaps it's just regular shrimp dumplings.

Steamed rice rolls with char siew, $8

The rice rolls were generally still ok but I think they are not thin enough and more char siew could have been given.

Steamed chicken siew mai with fish roe, $7.20

I like the siew mai here, as it's topped with a juicy scallop and black caviar, giving it a different twist. The meat within was also tasty.

Deep fried crispy prawn with mango, $6.90

The coating for the crispy prawn with mango was crispy enough and the prawn within succulent. A little bit more mango would be great.

We also ordered quite a few other items (not pictured here) and they were all either ok or above average.

The ambience and service at Li Bai is good. There was a staff who seemed to be a newcomer who did not know what a dim sum menu is...she actually gave us different menus and only got it correct on the third try. She also served us peking duck even though we did not order that - she's kinda blur. Other than that, the other service staff were all good though.

If you do not mind forking out slightly more here for the dim sum, this is a good place for a relaxing family meal.
