Very nice atmosphere, the waitresses are really friendly. I recommend the pork belly (with some rice) and the crab dumplings!

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.

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.
