I have always liked the food at China plate but the prices have gone so high. One dish was over 20 dollars. The waiters are old and a bit slow. I think they have now priced themselves to a point where I will look elsewhere

Chinese food is the most adaptable in the world. So looking for Authentic Chinese food? China maybe? I can't vouch for the authenticity of the Chinese food here. But who cares, Good food is good food. This place for what it is, it be Indian-Chinese, Hakka Chinese whatshamacallit, it is fa-bu-lous. The staff is outstanding and no matter what your... More

Apart from the above mentioned, some of the other food are quite lovely. The lobster was excellent too. We order the roasted chicken with poussin chips when we go as a big family and are never disappointed. The manager Shamir is doing a fantastic job. Range of chilli sauces are delicious and of course spicy!

Since my last visit, both the food and service have improved. The dishes came quickly and piping hot and the portions were so large we could not finish it all. The service was attentive and helpful. The decor is nice and good atmosphere I would recommend this place.

Have known this restaurant for a very long time and this is the place I usually choose for business luncheons and take aways for my family. The reception and service by the waiters is very good which is one thing I am always very particular about. Spacious seating and cleanliness is another plus for them. When it comes to the... More
