Great dim sum place ..

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... read 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

If you are looking for Hong Kong local food, this is the place. You can find roast goose, roast duck, bbq pork, wanton noodle, porridge, dim sum and etc. All the food taste excellent especially their charcoal roasted goose, crispy & mouth watering!

You get as close to authentic Cantonese cuisine at this place. Really good food. Nice place to eat. Service is good. Portions are reasonable. The not so good? - Extremely pricey for what you get. You can get these stuff at lower prices at big local chinese restaurants such as Overseas. - In addition, those would actually taste better. So... More

Quite pricey in my opinion. They will charge for the small serving of braised peanuts when you sat down and even the wet towels are chargeable. If you did not use it, please make sure they take it off the bill. Else, they will just proceed to charge. I only like the big shrimp wanton noodles and that's about it.... More

I find young waiter/waitress (especially those whom are working part time) does not concentrate on their work, there was one time I have to raise my voice towards them to revert while they're chit-chatting around the corner. Poor disciplinary practice. Food tastes good, but ingredients are rather too simple.
