“Average food”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We visited in February on a Saturday evening, we had booked a table, otherwise we wouldn't have got seated.

I ordered the battered fish pieces in sweat & sour sauce. I found the batter tough and the fish inside had a very strong "Fishy" flavour and was generally dry and quite tough to chew. I found this disappointing.

“reasonable”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Can't say there's anything epic about this place, but nothing bad either. Nicely modern and clean place frequented by Chinese, which is always a good sign. The food was nicely presented and good value. It wasn't overly interesting food, but pretty good and just what we needed that night.

“Amazing food, amazing service.”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

We tried this restaurant by chance and left incredibly happy that we did. Throughout our visit the staff were attentive, courteous and friendly (especially the manager). The food was awesome and we both left completely satisfied. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants a first class dining experience.

“Paid to be shouted by the manager...”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Went in the second time and the quality of food was continuously bad as rice was mushy

made a complaint and asked for boiled rice. Instead we get a confrontation by the manager. Rest of food was okay

but when we paid the bill the MANAGER again confronted my mother which was rather disgusting and accused us of being bad customers for cancelling a sold out dish.

Manager continued to shout at us in front of everyone who were eating which was embarrassing and then called us TRAMPS as well as wishing WE HAD A CAR ACCIDENT ON OUR WAY HOME.

In a family restaurant business as well as working in customer service for 7 years we have never felt so disgusted at the poor service i had received and ignorance upon a person. I would never recommended anyone to visit this place as food quality is a gamble and the managers pathetic attitude. potentially one of the worst restaurants i've ever experienced.
