    Dining at this restaurant was a delight. I’ve been here before and it was amazing. From start to end, from Xiaolongbao to Seabass, it was just delicious. Will be back for sure!

    This place is a hidden gem! We ordered ‘Noodles with Pork trotter’’Noodles with Roast Duck’. It’s only £18.8 for a lunch set, including the noodle and another 2 appetizers and drink. Definitely recommend to try for lunch. I really enjoyed my visit.

    Great food but the waiters had trouble understanding our English - I guess they were young and recently recruited.

    Overall the dining experience okay. Food quality was good in terms of what was available. Sadly we were told there was no Dim Sum as the chef who made that was not working. Limited choices for drinks and also deserts as it appeared they were out of stock. Staff were polite and nice although lacked experience and product knowledge of menu items.

    Food is tasty, but a bit on a smaller portion side; the service is so so so slow. We were served our drinks 25 mins after we ordered it, and the food was served 30 mins after we ordered it, which is a bit annoying.

    It is very frustrated. We booked time at 20:45 but we get no seat when we arrive. I argued and finally they provide seats for us. It is very stressed for serving during Chinese new year. I understand the hectic work but we still get no serve for a while, after stop some waiter they told us it’s only for set meal, no regular menu or even specific meal to order on the set. Has to order in set way. No ability to make food separately. So we decide to leave.

    The restaurant was not prepared for Chinese New Year. Even though the restaurant was not super busy, they failed to deliver the same quality of food as before. The service was also pretty appalling as the waiters didn't seem to have any idea about what items (from the fixed set menu) had been delivered and what were missing.
