The food is absolutely delicious and highly recommended. I think this is a lovely place to take your spouse to and enjoy a romantic meal. The food will not disappoint you and neither will the service.

Doubled the price with half the portions. Previous menu was perfect. This was my preferred restaurant for many years. The recent change in menu and prices made me reconsider - will not visit and recommend it.

A great restaurant for fine dining, for group and business. They serve variety of quality and authentic Chinese cuisines. Price is reasonable and worth for what you should get. In another word, you will not regret for what you have paid. Service is superb! The waiter is very friendly and always at your service. Environment is clean, cosy and warmth.... More
