Surprisingly, this one didn't live upto the expectation. The food was average and so was the service. The restaurant primarily offers Cantonese food, with a vast enough menu. The problem: taste is pretty average. We had fish, fried rice and veggies - none was great. Would still like to believe that it was a case of not all things on... More

We visited this place last night and here's a review, as fresh as the food we had there.

No offence to the musician, but bryan adams being belted out... More

Not even up to the mark of a local street vendor, when we visited there were only 3 vegetables in each of the dishes we ordered .... Red pepper, Yellow pepper and spring onion...with a terrible balance of flavors with everything just tasting... More
