Indeed most of the patrons while we were there were Orientals. We... read more

Bomb. In chinese its called po chai fan. The price is alright, they offer egg waffles with condensed milk. They have this pretty expensive steak that personally myself have not yet tried. Only offer it on some days only make sure you call prior arriving to see if they have it on the day.

Good variety of Chinese and Western food selections and good food quality make this place our go-to place for casual family get-togethers and everyone in our multi-generation extended family can find something suits his or her palate.

Yes, another Hong Kong cafe that serves Chinese people Chinese or Western food. While it doesn't have signature dishes, it is fine and clean. Great hours so you can go anytime.

We were delighted to stumble on the hearty Hong Kong style food here. It was heaping in portions and very tasty. We asked the waiter for recommendations and he was 'spot' on with the ribs (reminded me of Korean style ribs in taste but it was more like a super big chunk of meat), Singaporean vermicelli (seafood - including soft...
