Not brilliant at all. Rice cold, my partners food arrived 15 minutes before mine and my watery BEEF Schechuan was awful. After mentioning this to the aloof head waiter i was then thr subject of a lot of tack a tack from waiters. Not that I am bothered but it was in my opinion a poor experience.

The Peking duck was simply perfect, it was so soft, flavorful & tangy! We enjoyed the seafoods as well especially the freshness of fish & shrimp. Service was excellent, the waiters are accommodating and knows every inch of details about the food they serve. A Lunch perfectly fit after our office work.

The tradiciónal boiled peanuts had a non-traditional boiled roach hidden underneath. When my wife pointed it out to the nonplussed waiter, no one came over to apologize. I felt disgusted and disappointed.

As for the food, the laksa was tasty and the Singapore sambal and vermicelli were good, but I would have preferred them spicier. The black gulaman dessert with lychee was an unusual treat. The service couldn't have been better. The waitresses and waiters... More
