Very good meal, reasonably priced with a very attentive wait staff. The restaurant was very quiet the evening I ate there.

So this is a chinese bar/ restaurant. This place actually serves phillipino food which is so tasty, menu variety is huge and actually fresh. Staff is fresh and energetic. It's not a fancy place but delivers to its promise of decent price and good food. I highly recommend this place for a night out with friends or after work

If you like pork, this is the place to go. Great spicy pork ribs with a Chinese n Philipino twist. Good live band with pretty good music. Drinks prices are decent too. Looking forward to visit again.

I can't believe it was only 6 months ago I gave this restaurant a fab report. What has happened. Went last night with my hubby, waited 45 minutes for our soup to arrive, (only 2 tables of people) when we asked for prawn crackers and soy sauce, sorry we don't have any......the soups was so bland I don't know how...
