5 of us visited on this occasion and felt it best to order a large selection of dim sum, Sushi and main dishes to eat as they were cooked and served; what a fantastic idea ! Food as good as ever, great wine list, nice champagne choice and fab service; always a favourite and we'll be back soon.

If you are in town and look for Asian flavours, this is an excellent choice. Nice offer with variety of Asian kitchen dishes. All I tried was very nice. Some dim sums, spicy prawns and Korean beef. All great. Good option in Cape Town.

Booked on the last night of our holiday and it turned out to be a fantastic meal. Garlic rice with the sizzling beef was amazing. We also had sushi, duck dim sum and marshmallow spring rolls for desert. All delicious. We were waiting a while to get our bill, but weren't exactly in a rush so it wasn't an issue.... More

Managed to get a table without booking and it was our fourth visit. This place has something for everyone and is not just a sushi place. Honey chicken and salt and pepper squid were excellent and we will come back.

We have supported this restaurant for so many years. I booked for a group of us to eat, then phoned them when we were running late to confirm a later time. This was confirmed. We arrived and we're informed our table given away and they were now full. No alternative proposal. Maitre d said " you may have phoned but... More
