The main courses are average at best. I had curry, nothing special. Grilled salmon came completely rare. When I complained they explained to me that they can either make it rare or burn it from the outside, so basically they don't know how to make grilled salmon... I wasn't charged for it.
They have buns with meet inside as an appetizer for 15$! too expensive for a small bun...
Other appetizers, especially the dim sums and the calamari are great, very unique.
The service is too pushy to sale pricy dishes.
I've been there 4 times because the food is generally good, but I will not come back.

Even tough the ambiance is OK and the food has some interesting things, what it is bizarre is the great effort put by the waiters to push you into some specific picks.
It all started with the wine, where she asked me if I knew my pick. I told her I did, but she insisted that there was another one nicer. The problem was that her choice was more than double the price of my choice. It all continue with an insistence to change all our picks. Even she insisted to change a meat choice for a fish one. We accepted the suggestions with one salad (supposedly to be very special) and with the fish. During the entire evening that salad went all over the restaurant to every table (cause I assume they pushed everybody). I can only say that it was the most vulgar dish among the entire dinner. The fish was not that special.
this fight over our pick versus the interest of the restaurant (without us asking for advice) is something that I found very irritating. How do they dare to change my picks, without me asking and then finding that their interest (in price or stock rotation) prevailed over my desires?

Located in a remote busy-by-day location, this place seems to have its regulars and is always full. Serving far eastern food, the dishes are interesting, there is a certain atmosphere to the place, and the shrimp-chips are a must. Go for many small dishes rather then main courses, and try to sit in the inner part of the restaurant, it feels better. Shrimp- chipssssss
