Popped in for dinner as it was close to the Grosvenor hotel and we had a voucher from the entertainer book. Quite a good selection available and we got some Dim sum and a couple of mains with rice. The calimari and chilli prawns were very tasty although it would have been good if the tails had been taken of... More

Rather smelly restaurant from the open kitchen. Menu ok but not really what I expected from the dim sum available. Service uninspiring. All in all rather disappointing.

Took the lunch ala carte menu with 2 other colleagues recently. There is a wide selection of tim sums, cheong fun, and main courses, and generally enough variety to keep me going back as a regular. However the exceptional variety is not matched by the quality, from taste to temperature. The cheong fun was not hot, just warm, the skin... More

Fantastic kitchen. Go for the Bang bang chicken as a starter. The main courses are ALL very nice. The price is good and staff quick and freindly. Unfortunately they don't have discount promotions anymore.

Met sime friends for brunch at the Jumeirah Beach Road one. The dim sum was good. Many varieties available and for AED89 weekend price and all you can eat, it was good value for money. Found the place a little noisy due to the open kitchen concept but otherwise ambience was good. Waiters were also very attentive. A good place... More

I enjoyed the food here and the menu is great with lots of choice. With some help from my waiter i choose some great dishes, all were very good. Is reasonably priced and I would return (I visited the one in JBR) - try the turnip cake, was really good.

89 Dhms for all you can eat brunch is a good deal, specially if you like DimSum The food was nice, the restaurant (tried the one in Jumeirah Beach Road) was nice but service a bit disorganized. The waiters were nice and tried to satisfy all the wishes... but the second order took ages and I had to ask several... More

After hearing a lot about this restaurant, finally got a chance to go for dinner, we were 7 of us who booked a table. What had expected to be, it was far below my expectations. The interiors were not that great and the food we ordered were a mixture of sea food, chicken, beef as well vegetarian. What ever we... More
