We had dinner here because the restaurant we intended to go to was fully booked.

The manager and her staff was very nice. In my haste to secure a place for dinner for my parents, I barged into the restaurant while it was still closed. They were warm and answered all my questions politely.

The dishes were delicious. We had peking duck, tofu with mushroom, beef, ginseng chicken double boiled soup and fried egg noodles.

Good service and great food. The next time, we will be back for Dim Sum.

Visited this restaurant after reading some reviews. My partner and me frequent JB a lot and have tasted few fine restaurants too.

The peking duck was a let down as compared to MeiSan at Mutiara. Could not taste the mango at all. The vegetable was way too bland.. no taste at all. The durian prawn- tastes ok but just felt the 2 combination doesn't blend in well. Thankfully, the grilled cod fish was really good and it was the dish that saved the entire meal.

To us, there are a few better restaurants we have tasted in terms of culinary and quality.

Dear Almyhappy,

Thank you for your review and feedback, unfortunately, we have come short on your expectations especially with our signature dishes which we will look through in details again.
Yes, thankfully the Cod fish has exceeded your expectations and please allow us to serve you again and try the more improved Peking duck.

Looking forward and best culinary regards,

Actually I seldom having a meal at a Chinese restaurant but I heard that this restaurant is quite good and cosy so I decided to come for eating. We ordered glass noodles with prawn, oven-baked cod fish and the signature dish - peking duck! I really love these! Furthermore, I recommend you the dessert namely mango puree. This was a nice choice! The mango was fresh. We really enjoy having dinner here because they gave us a very good service. I think I will come back again for the buffet dim sum next time^^

Ordered Peking Duck with Fried Noodle as room service. Was slightly disappointed at 1st with the Peking duck wrap as it was not crispy. However on 2nd thoughts, I believe that due to the cling wrap for room service. That might cause the skin to be soggy.

On the other hand, I am in awe of the fried noodle that I order with the duck. The noodle was fragnant and tasty. And kept me eating non stop. Will be backed for it.

Dear SingaporeNic,

Thank you for taking the time and effort to write us a review.

Yes, i believe the cling wrap for the Peking Duck might have made it loose it's crispiness but this was done to ensure your food is delivered to you safely ensure no 'foreign objects' or dust contaminates your food orders.

We are truly glad we have exceeded your expectations in our food quality which has further motivated us to ensure nothing but the best leaves our kitchen stoves.

The Wan-Li Team of chefs and myself looking forward to your next visit.

Best culinary regards,

Mahady - Executive Chef
