Went on a Friday... didn't book to be fair but as soon as we sat down our food arrived within 5 minutes... it was very rushed, they should have said no if they couldn't accommodate us. When I go out for a meal I like to sit and relax. Food was okay. Also it was way too overcrowded and loud.

Visitied here with friends on Sunday evening. Our first time there but definitely not our last. We all had a superb meal. The quality, presentation and service was excellent. BYO was appreciated and the little extra charge for recycling was worth it. You have at least 4 new customers Macau We will be spreading the word!!

Visited with friends, I had heard so much and I was full of expectations. Sadly I was disappointed. Food is good but the noise in the restaurant can spoil any night out. Service was slow and after 55 minutes we had to call the waiter and ask had they forgotten we were there. Then the psychology kicked in, they arrived... More

This is a lovely family run Chinese Restaurant on the Ormeau Road. It gets very busy so you need to book early to avoid disappointment. The staff are really friendly and cater for all ages and sizes of groups and the food is really delicious. The roast Duck Cantonese style is out of this world, and if you don't eat... More

I have been to MACAU quite a few times - with friends, as a couple and I have to say it suits any occassion. The food is delicious with great choice & as for the staff - it is a busy restaurant so all you need to do is ask for what you need & nothing is too much trouble... More

Took my mum here for her birthday last Friday night. There were a table of 13 men and have to say the staff focused on them the whole night and hardly came near us. We also had to wait an hour between our starter and main course. My mum and I got a spoonful of rice each and they charged... More
