Nice but not 3 stars

The Dim Sum were good, services were attentive and caring. However , the food was very average. I could easily find many Chinese restaurants in Macau could have done better, in terms of tastes. For a three starred restaurant , I certainly expected more.

One of the best chinese restaurants in macau. Great timsum and a la carte dishes. Of course it comes with high price too. For those who are willing to spend, please visit. Tried the char siew, roast pig, and 八宝鹅, also the timsum, worth eating! One thing that disappoint me, being a 3 stars michelin chinese restaurant (only 2 in... More

The food are tasting good and nicely decorated. The dim sum dishes are of very high quality. However, they have dressing codes for men only including boys above 3 years old that you must observe before you can enjoy the food

During my Macau trip I went to many Michelin star Chinese restaurants. I am not Chinese but I live in China / Asia long enough to give a decent comment I believe. The food and service is not a 3 star Michelin level. The food uninspiring, the presentation like in 80's with strawberry on a pork belly dish, I really... More

Decided to visit the place after seeing photos of the Goldfish dumpling. However I was a tad disappointed when mine wasn't as pretty as the ones I've seen. A few of the dim sum items scored full marks for presentation such as Baked Tartelette with Crabmeat in Curry Sauce and Puff Pastry with river shrimp in purse shape. The life-like... More

First time at this restaurant, the decoration was impressive and very classy. We did not order the most expensive food on the menu but just comfort food. It was delicious and delicately presented. Portion was good too. Wait staff is not so attentive and we had to wave a couple of time to get their attention to serve us. Overall,... More

The Dim Sum is innovative with high quality ingredients delivered in a unique way. Service is superb and our waitress kindly offered recommendations as to what we might enjoy! Loved the pan fried bbq pork dumpling served in the shape of a hedgehog!! So cute. A Dim Sum lunch here is great value for money, five dishes to share plus... More

A restaurant with a grand entrance,serving modern dim sum. Not the best dim sum I ever had,as I prefer the dim sum restaurant in Hotel Lisboa. Service could also be improved considering its a 3 Michelin restaurant. My friends from France, who had many previous 3 Michelin restaurants experience, were not impressed with the service provided but did enjoy the... More

Ordered those famous dishes and overall quality is good but taste not really that excellent. Most of it are the baked and deep fried dim sum. Lost of the star mainly due to their service: not cleaning the table right away when there is dirt. I have tried some western restaurant 3 Michelin that they will clean the table with... More
