Not Bad

Food is ok. No complaints. Quite a variety of Hong Kong dishes. Something for everyone, suitable for children as well. A family restaurant.

For a European this is a good place to eat, the menu cart is covering wide and there are something for everybody. We were greeted at the door and was seated quickly. The food was served 1-2 dishes at a time so nothing would be cold. Every thing tasted great even though those dishes that stated Hot wasn't that Hot... More

We were on Friday afternoon and they offered some discounts on dimsum till 6pm. You will get 10% if you order 1 dish; 25% 2 dishes and 50% if you order 5 dishes (btw zhu Cheong fan was excluded). We enjoyed our meal however when we paid the bill, we realised that they did not include discount on the bill.... More

Its all about cantonese and chinese food. I have been there numerous times and the food quality is up to expectation. Porridge is smooth and good to taste. Wan tan noodles taste delicious if you have not eaten any recently. Overall is great dining experience. You can return your unused wet paper towel in wrap to save RM 1.00 and... More

This restaurant serves one of the best Cantonese dim sum around .. We had a variety of food including the usual char siew buns which came out fluffy and piping hot, as was the rest of the food. The only thing is if you order the porridge, be prepared, because they add a little of dried orange peel which makes... More

Stopped by here for lunch while at the mall today. I had the dim sum and it was the best I have had in Penang. It was late in the day so they were out of a few items but that just shows that everything is fresh! I usually hate to go to Queensbay but now I will go anytime... More

Provides a varied menu but often things wanted not available. Limited choice of dishes. Food portions too little for price paid. Food tasty and salty but after meal finds that I need to drink lots of water. Wait tome for food is too long considering the simple dishes ordered. Ambience too noisy and crowded. Tables arranged too close together.

If you are looking for good chinese food and dim sum at Queensbay Mall, you can check out Canton-i. It is also a family-friendly place, and is pretty affordable. Their egg tarts and carrot cakes are yummy. I also like their salted fish fried rice. They have special flower teas where the tea leaves will gradually reveal a flower from... More
