Friendly service , not greasy !!!

Fast, friendly service. BBQ pork was the standout dish again. The owners were training new staff so the manager essentially followed them around to ensure the orders and service standards were met... Clearly they were trying hard. Entree's were not greasy. Wontons were the table favourite.

We had lunch here though I think it was called China Seafood or something? Lovely views over the marina, day time yum cha really well priced for the position. Service was efficient and friendly. We had our young kids so chose to sit outside away from the very quiet, upmarket dining room. Much better than neighbouring restaurants and an easy... More

Tried the Banquet for 2. Clearly our eyes were bigger than our bellies. Food was fresh, tasty and quick to hit the table. Staff were polite and attentive. Great views over Marina but added bonus of being inside and cool in the air conditioning.

Suspiciously quiet but we found the quality, value and service to be excellent. On the top deck overlooking the spit, the location is hard to beat. Must do!

Yummy spring rolls, dim sims, satay chicken and Mongolian beef. That's a tick in every box. Need I say any more?

Beautiful view, wonderful location. Food extremely disappointing, very average, meat was fatty and grisly. Flavours just not right in anything. Lack of vegetables in sweet and sour dish. Everything extremely below par. Such a disappointment for such a wonderful location. Most definitely would not eat there again

Very pleasantly surprised by the excellent crispy fried duck, sizzling lamb and special fried rice. All washed down with a Fifth Leg Sauvignon Blanc. Happy and attentive staff.

Staff inexperienced, not much English understood or spoken, food going to wrong tables, loooong delays for food. No one to take responsibility for a wretchedly bad lunch, not even an apology?? Ps Still made us pay full price.
