Needed a simple non complicated dinner! The dumplings and soup were terrific! The Wonton Soup and the Hot and Sour close to Authentic as you going to get! Nice staff - friendly attentive! Good feed - reasonably priced!

My family took me here for a birthday dinner. The food was delicious, the wait staff friendly and attentive, and the meal reasonably priced for this (high) standard fare. 1.

Some of the staff have a very poor grasp of English, requiring us to repeat our orders several times.The attitude of staff could best be described as disinterested; they seem to have mastered the...

Went here for something to eat in hotel and thought this was the best bet - it also had some good reviews. Was busy which is usually a good sign. However was very disappointing. Service was average. Food was less than average. Not very tasty and bland. Ambience was poor not helped by staff clearing tables using a trolley and... More
