My husband and I were very pleased with the food and the service, although the male waiter was a little surly. The duck was delicious and the other dishes we had were good too. We were the only non Chinese people there, which we thought was a good indication of the standard, so I was surprised to read the negative... More

While the food at the restaurant was good, the service was definitely not. All the servers always seemed preoccupied with something more pressing whenever we asked for something and they either waved us aside or acted like they had something better to do. We asked them to help get a group photo for us as it was a birthday (which... More

This restaurant has great food. We had a delicious rice noodle. The best I have had so far. Would certainly recommend it.

The owner here sold us "fresh" abalone at $175 a piece. What we received was definitely NOT fresh... possibly canned or frozen perhaps. They obviously knew we were tourists and recommended the most expensive items on the menu, which would be okay, if you deliver. Our bill ended up being over $100 per person for very mediocre food, and when... More

Staff grunted to seat us, should have known then not to eat here. Asked for some table water, never received. Plate of vegetables, overcooked and bland tasting - all the same colour.

I understand if restaurant is busy you can't really focus to the customers but it was really bad. They couldn't even take my order because it was "too busy". I don't think I will visit here ever again.

We ordered a few dish and it took forever for food to be serve. Taste were alright but I feel thirsty during the night. Anyway, what will stop me to come over here was a service. The waitress almost drop the soup on my mom. She was try to serve the food between mom and 5 years old kid. For... More

Surprisingly poor service for a half full restaurant. They didn't even set up the table for 3 they gave us for our group of 4, despite our request for another place setting so we had to resort to getting our own dishes from an adjacent table. Slow to take our order and not particularly responsive to anything else. We'd understand... More
