Place was packed so we had to wait for a while before we got the table. Ordered a few dishes, food was pretty tasty but nothing too exceptional. The price range is also moderate. Great for eating in a group.

Seat was full when I reached. Walked around nearby. Returned 15 minutes later. I got seated. Ordered chicken but no chicken. Go there early.

Simple setting with fresh seafood. Famous for their herbal chicken. Pick the dishes displayed on the wall. Can't go wrong!

Food is above average chinese cooking. Service is prompt. Prices reasonable. Specialty beggar chicken is good. Come early as the place is always packed. Parking is quite bad.

Food is very good with reasonable price. It is a local favourite, food presentation is not their key interest but the flavour is very good. You must book before visiting, always full.

Visited 11 sept 16 Sunday for dinner. Hubby tried to make reservations but they only do reservations for more then 7 pax. Sad. There's only 5 of us. So we ended up standing waiting for a table at the very very crowded and chaotic restaurant. We reached there 6pm and it's already full house. We were lost as to how... More
