lobster delight

visited yesterday for birthday lunch, food and service exceptional as always, with the star of the show being a huge lobster cooked with chilli and garlic, so succulent and absolutely delicious. The dim sum dumplings too were steaming hot and so tasty.

Our family had a lovely meal. All dishes such a high standard. Must recommend the sea bass cooked with spring onions and ginger and also the white house wine. If you like sauvignon blanc, you will love this. Tastes like a very expensive wine. Staff as friendly as ever.

Go there quite often, service excellent as is the food. Have to book at weekends but it is well worth the effort. Quite expensive but you only get what you pay for, we always enjoy our visits

Restaurant booked for a 60th Birthday which I attended. Over a hundred people. Food and Service absolutely first class. Old fashioned exterior but once inside you will not be disappointed. A thoroughly enjoyable day and experience.
