it is not a chinese it is trying to be taiwanese. We were 3 friends we ordered a lot of food for sharing , the chefs specialities were the worst ones, dim sums were average, meats below average, soups and sea foods are below the average too. Prices are high for Johannesburg.

Having read the "Top 10 dim sum restaurants in Joburg" we were keen to try this one - well what a shock - the dim sum was a disgrace to any dim sum chef - how they can refer to it as dim sum is mind boggling - being so disappointed with the dim sum we ordered the peking duck... More

Disgraceful service, inedible food and pathetic management - sent the Peking duck back three times as it was soggy and partially frozen still. Eventually just paid the bill and left without having lunch. No effort at damage control and no apology for wasting two hours of my day.

Visited the restaurant one very cold and windy evening. Quite confusing getting into the restaurant and seems to have several private dining rooms. Initial service was shocking - the waiter must have been new and he knew nothing about the available wine and/or drinks. He then battled with any recommendations for food which could have been disastrous as the menu... More

To set the scene..... we were a large table in a private dining room. My food was fabulous: Dim Sum to start: I shared with a colleague so we each had two prawn dim sum and 2 minced pork. Could not say which one I liked best as both were excellent. This I followed with crispy shanghai duck - better... More

The most amazing decor and it makes you feel like you are in Asia, we had the susi, it was very good and well priced. The salmon was very fresh. They have specials from time to time, it is surely my favourite susi spot in JHB, We will return.

Great Asian food and experience on all accounts... food spot on and service no frills. Mixed with a funky setting and low volume western deep house music backdrop. Interesting and come with an open mind.

Staff are poorly trained, very loud music even after we requested to turn it down. Squid was oily and chewy and the Dim Sum was burnt. Nice setting but will not go back

The restaurant has a good reputation in the media but after our experience I think the trust is misplaced. The decor and vibe in the restaurant is quite appealing but we were very disappointed with the food. It was served cold and was extremely average. There are better Asian restaurants in JHB.
