Food was good. Good menu and variety. The stand out was the Peking Duck - superb. Staff were efficient but not overly friendly. Comfortable atmosphere.

Good value, lovely fresh food. We had not booked, but they managed to fit us in anyway. A huge selection of yum cha dishes, everything we tried was tasty and fresh.

simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on

money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
