The white truffles pasta was recommended by the restaurant manager, Sue.... More

We had followed the review and rating to restaurant. Service was so so although waitress trying very hard. Lack of training before sending to the ground. Food? Very horrible!

After a few days at Shenzhen, we had a break from Chinese food and this was definitely a top choice. We had good food and great service. Dario, the manager, made sure we had a enjoyable experience.
