This little restaurant is really lovely. Well run by a husband and wife team the service is very good and the food is quite excellent. Remember to take your own alcohol though, as they do not have a licence. Not expensive and great value.

Blink and you will miss it. Small I counted 7 tables. Food was good and freshly cooked. The business lunch is a steal . Very friendly staff.

This is a small rustic restaurant that serves very good and fairly priced food. We visited mid week and found the place still busy. The salt squid was a favourite dish.

Tried this restaurant after it was recommended to me by a friend and wasn't disappointed. Plenty of choice on the menu and the quality of food was excellent. Portion size was adequate and the value for money was outstanding. Give it a try.

Description
Please note that bookings are highly recommended as seating is very limited. Come for clean, healthy, authentic Cantonese food; from lobster to stuffed peppers and aubergines to freshly steamed fish. Make sure to book for a large party! David, a highly sought-out chef, teaming with his wife Betty, created this "hidden gem" in August 2012. Working together, they restored and captured the exhilarating tastes straight from Hong Kong and produce authentic Chinese and Cantonese cuisine for everyone to enjoy. Using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients sourced locally, our menu is always changing depending on season and availability. Some dishes on our Specialities Menu require prior notice of 48 hours. Our talented chefs will be happy to cater to any special dietary requests, and will cook each dish specifically for you. Try something new than the stereotypical Chinese takeaway food altered to suit the foreign taste buds.
