It is a little more expensive than your local Chinese restaurant but this is because it is a more 'upmarket'; not pretentious in any way though, it is still casual dining. We ordered 3 dim sum dishes, the beef claypot & a rice to share....More

Visited twice this month and not been disappointed, service and food always of good quality, one of a party is a celiac and is impressed by their knowledge and service. A place we always visit when in Glasgow.

The waitresses were running to keep up but the service was good and the food was hot. From solo diners to a table of 10. It’s not HK but pretty authentic in the centre of Glasgow.

Had a really excellent meal here with my mum after a couple of nice whiskeys in the pot still pub. Wonderful service, very delicate and delicious dim sum. I wasn't disappointed at all!

Li,item menu but done very well. Good flavour and volume, professional service, not cheap but extremely enjoyable. A bit sharp off the mark to close dead on 10.30 and some warning would have been preferable.

Hi. Yes I do believe their menu carries option of being gluten free. I am sure they could help with dairy free if you asked.
