    The food was fresh, tasty and plenty of it. The waiters were polite and advised if they thought you were ordering too much rice. We had 6 people with all of us having starter's, 5 mains, 2 rice and Singapore noodles and it was delicious and plentiful. The place was very clean and just overall a great evening. Highly recommend 👌

    Beautiful setting and professional services. Menu has abundant choices and they taste amazing. Wine list is above the average of ordinary Asian restaurants, having some interesting European ones. Careful as it is not BYO on Saturdays and Sundays. MM

    Requested a booth seat a week prior to our booking, was told on arrival these seats are for 6 people and couldn’t have a booth seat, the restaurant was quiet and only one booth was occupied, we were shown to a table for 2 but I wasn’t happy with this, we decided to leave but then was given a booth seat to avoid our leaving, the plastic divider of the booth was very grubby, think the whole place requires a good clean. Food was good, service was good but wouldn’t go back..

    We've been customers for years... the food and service are both always impeccable... HOWEVER two things annoyed us this time. On arrival we were told NO BYO Saturdays... why not before? .... and no sooner had we sat down at 5:45 than the waitress announced 'we need the table back at 7 pm.' Poor form on both counts!

    We booked for Fathers Day. Restaurant a bit too busy. We have to wait to be seated and asking again before we were assigned a table. We waited again on the table and had to asked to be assigned a waitress to take up our order. We were seated across the kitchen entrance and we could not relaxed watching the rush in and out the kitchen. We ordered banquet, the 5 main came slowly and the Peking duck pancake came short of 1. When we asked the missing one, we did not realised that we got charge extra. The 7 mains came reasonably fast and the portion and taste are good. We had some left over to take home. Perhaps we will be back again but definitely not during special occasions such as Fathers Day. It was a bit too hectic for us.

    The food is always incredible as ALWAYS. It was fully booked out for Father’s Day and I really felt for the staff. They didn’t know what to do as the manager was all over them and every time they would go to a table they would be called by him. They seemed like nervous wrecks, usually they are excellent but seriously it was the managers doing not the staff
