Butterfly's Dim Sum?

I see Butterfly in Hadley has a new sign out front advertising Dim Sum on Saturdays and Sundays. Has anyone tried it?

    Had dinner there the other night. Looked at menu printed on 1 piece of paper. You could stop in and grab 1... have about 15-20 items on menu with 3 different price points. 3.95 - 5.95 I think. No carts.

      So, strictly off the menu? Worth thinking about.
      How was dinner? We used to love Butterfly and go regularly and then something happened, it fell off a cookery cliff (!) or something. Is it back to its old good self?

        We had spicy salted shrimp with head dinner size. Not many places around here that serve with head and I enjoy the whole shrimp. I have had better there in prior visits. However, the vegetable dish we had was excellent with a garlic black bean sauce. Probably would have been happier at Bahn Mi Saigon!

          Oh, dear. Not what I was hoping for. (We loved that shrimp too, but without shell. Sissies.)
          Banh Mi Saigon is one of our favorite new places, and everything we've had so far has been delicious. Only thing is it's pretty chilly and the decor is strictly takeout. We usually eat there anyway. Do you have some favorites to recommend? We're looking to try new stuff.

          Ate there with my book group tonight; it was very good. We had pork with garlic sauce and Gung Bao chicken, both excellent and off the gourmet menu. Stuffed eggplant pretty good, chicken with ginger and green beans quite good. Excellent home style dumplings.

        I wish they would do it on Christmas!
