Have visited this restaurant off and on over many years. Has been 2 1/2 years since the last visit which should have told me something but a family member wanted to go. Never again. Firstly, a largely empty restaurant is never a good sign. Somewhat lacking in staff as well as customers. Had booked ( don't ask why I bothered!) but waited a while on arrival until noticed by a young lad who told us our table was " over there in the window". Not exactly shown to our table! After some waiting, he came to take a drink order. Then a long wait to order food while the lad stood at the bar gazing into space. Kept trying to catch his eye to no avail. Eventually a lady came from the kitchen ( the only other person we saw, briefly.....maybe she was doing all the cooking too) and she took our order. Took ages to arrive and we only ordered one chicken satay ( cold) two portions of spring rolls ( big ones Ok, small ones....the only vegetarian ones.....tiny, dry and expensive ) and some prawn crackers. Then had to wave manically to attract the attention of the waiter standing daydreaming in order to ask for some soy sauce.
After a considerable wait, the waiter brought our plates ready for the main courses. The plates were vaguely warm, but by the time the food finally arrived, they were stone cold. As the food was tepid too, we found ourselves bolting the food to eat it still warmish. Two of us had the chicken chow Mein and, after yet more trouble catching an eye, sent both half eaten dishes back to be warmed up.....they were returned plonked together on one plate! The Chow Mein itself was very bland too. More like a side dish than a main, with very little finely shredded chicken in it.
Special Noodles were anything but special. Edible but uninspired and they were cold too. As for the aromatic duck, it was awful. I know in the past they used to bring it out and shred it in front of you. Not any more. It seemed to have been shredded and kept warm for so long that some bits were so dry they crumbled into powder.
Suffice to say, we will not be going back.
