Cai is a dim sum place on the upper level of Chinatown Square. The space is huge, the servers wear jackets, and there’s plenty of lazy Susan tables for groups of all sizes. The all-day dim sum menu here is gigantic (both in terms of length and physical size) and everything is pretty good - we really like the pork pastry and the beef and enoki rice noodle. Cai is also great for a big group dinner, where you can share the Peking duck carved tableside.
