I booked here based on previous reviews. It was a quiet evening and the staff were very pleasant and attentive. The food looked interesting but to be honest some of the 'fusion' dishes seemed a little strange and more than a little strained. Just because you can mix things up doesn't mean that it is always a good idea. Perhaps... More

very nice food - went for a meal for my brother's 30th and whilst it isn't your everyday simple menu, there is something to suit everyone who appreciates a good far eastern meal. very pleased.

Visited this place on couple different occasions, and was impressed with the food. Really nice presentation of dishes. My only concern was slow service and considerably high prices. Long wait for the drinks, and had to look for a waiter to re-oder second round myself... However, would go back for the food, probably on a quiet night..

Absolutely love the food in this place. Have been for dinner now a few times and it's my favourite Chinese in Glasgow city centre. It's quirky and contemporary Chinese style in a small but spacious location! Really good

For something a little bit different this is the place to go, small but perfectly formed! Excellent food, although not cheap, attentive service but not intrusive, always nice at the end of an evening when owner/manager comes for a chat to make sure you were happy with everything - nice touch. Would definately go back when in a Glasgow.

Chinese/fusion type restaurant. The dim sum were delicious, the menu was quite interesting, not your usual chinese restaurant. Staff were extremely attentive and helpful.

Was high expectations for this restaurant, however was a bit disappointed after visiting... We were in a group of 4 friends, and the first downside was that it was really difficult to order our drinks, had to wait for a while, and after we've ordered we got the wrong drinks served. Food was good, but considering the prices, wouldn't say... More

The menue is slightly limited but the quality of the food is excellent. I would thoroughly recommend trying this place if in Glasgow city centre. Its... More

This is a strange place to review. Let me start by saying I have never tasted better chinese food, but I've never had such slow service. The service from the ladies was very good when it happened it just didn't happen very often. It took the best Part of 3 hours to serve a banquet style meal. I can't fault... More

I've been here twice now and both times I have been really impressed. The service is always great and the staff are very polite and attentive. The food steals the shop though. Something a bit different to your usual Chinese or oriental cuisine. You can either eat dim sum (small dishes) or main meals. Last time I went I had... More
