Service was good, food was hot, but meal lacked taste. Partners meal was mixed up gave him the wrong meal we didn't want to wait for proper order not a lot of taste. Plenty of food on offer. Area was clean and spacious.

We tried the deep fried oysters and they're very nice indeed. The hot and sour soup, my fav, is tangy and hot... heart filling especially on a cold evening. Good service, and can customise the dish to be non spicy as we have little kids....More
