My friend and I went for lunch. We chose a set menu. Except or the fact that our three courses were bought out together, the meal was enjoyable and the staff were friendly and efficient.

The restaurant is beautiful and it is so good to have a good Chinese restaurant in Olinda. We had a banquet and everything was delicious. The desserts are European and mouthwatering.

This has been closed for more than 12 months and no longer serving meals. Was good so do not know what happened. It needs to be removed from the reviews unless it reopens in the future. If so, it can go back on the reviews.
