Excellent service by the host and waitress with lovely portions on the buffet menu giving you a lot to try. All the food was good quality and good value for money. Much improved since my last visit.

We came to try the Dim Sum and Sushi buffet. What a wonderful taste adventure. Small portions of food allows you to try everything and have more of your favourites! Great view and fantastic service. Really loved the final Saki touch and the fortune cookie!

I am perplexed that this establishment has operated for so long. No atmosphere, the food was well below average. We had springs rolls, sweet and sour chicken and a chow mein. Not a single meal was palatable, even the sauces and condiments were not good. I'm rarely this vocal about an experience, but this is one to avoid.

Mission was to get the best Sweet and Sour Pork and is was achieved without much ado. Thanks to the competent staff from kitchen to the waitress, who made us feel welcome from the start. The late 80's decor and the melamine crockery did not detract from the experience as it was all about the food, and as mentioned, it... More

The reservation was handled professionally and the table was ready on arrival with birthday glitter decorations. Drinks were offered promptly and orders taken correctly. Everyone in the party of 10 was served almost simultaneously. The pineapple chicken dish was presented in a halved pineapple and all the dishes looked appealing. They were served hot and the food was tasty. The... More

The quality of the food was terrible. Very disappointed. The meat was tough, the sauces not good. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Makes me wonder if the chef is even Chinese? To top it off all the food is served on melamine plastic plates and the tea served in melamine cups as well

Saw there special and decided to give the place a go. I walked out extremely unhappy! Waiter was not clear on the menu, she didn't have any product knowledge, got our first drink order (we were only two adults and a child) and didn't know what drink goes to who. Not even mentioning the food orders, my friend would ask... More

As a lover of Sushi, we had to try the special, as it was recommended. We were welcomed with a bow, and showed our table that we reserved earlier the day. We asked for the special of "Eat as much as you like for R168.00. It was worth the money. We had a variety of dumplings, Steamed buns and a... More
