Taste can't compare with typical Hong Kong , its ABC just like low-end fast food quality and missing order always. Beef no beef taste, chicken no chicken taste. Hoinam chicken rice is terrible!! Not recommended

Open late for diner and supper lover. Great varieties of Hong Kong and Cantonese style. Both traditional and fusion. Value for money and excellent seating.

Good for quick cravings of any Cantonese food, service isn't the best and food comes out pretty quickly. They speak mandarin and cantonese, so if you're able to talk to them they give you slightly better service

An informal restaurant that serves a wide a variety of Chinese dishes. Many choices of rice plates and noodles. Also has some of the more exotic Chinese dishes. The tomato beef rice plate and the curry chicken plate were great.
