Sweet sour crabs with fried rice complement each other. Environment a little noisy and service could be more friendly.

The crabs only cooked in either sweet and sour or steamed. The crabs are small size, but tasty. The sweet and sour gravy is good for dipping fried bread which can be ordered together with the crab. Besides crabs, they've got some local chinese meals like fried rice and chicken satay. Altogether decent but there are better and cheaper places... More

Limited selection for food; have to wait for tables; noisy and no airconditioning. However, the fried rice is nice. Service is poor.

I absolutely love this place. The crabs are really fresh service is quite fast and everything is just good about this place. The main problem that people don't like this place it's because it's quite expensive and you need to wait 10-20 minutes before they have a seat for you during peak hours. For me it's worth the wait and... More

The chicken wings must be from another planet. Excellent! The rest of the menu is OK but quite ordinary.
