This very amazing place took me back to China. Carefully prepared and well balanced meal with lots of different courses served in generous course sizes. Lots of umami. Service was very kind and friendly. What a treat! Don't miss this gem of a restaurant.

Came here in a group of 8 and the majority were disappointed. The starters were nice enough but the mains weren't great. Food was quite bland and my chicle didn't taste right. Maybe they had a off night as my friends usually love this Chinese.
