“Nice Peking Duck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I was glad I took the recommendation of the waitress that a full duck was adequate for a meal for 2 with some fried rice. I didn't quite believe it until the duck arrived and the skin was carved and served with the usual pancakes and sides. It was delicious.

We had the meat cooked as a later course although that was a bit tough and slightly disappointing.

All in all, a nice place.

“Great ambience but don't expect authentic tasting Cantonese dim sum.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We ordered dim sums and main courses. Whilst the mains were rather good, the dim sum failed to impress. The xiaolongbaos were deflated, and the seafood in the dumpling soup were rubbery. Food here would satisfy most palettes but not the discerning Chinese food lovers.

The ambience was nice though, so definitely a good place to entertain your clients for a business lunch.

“Excellent Dim Sum - Poor Evening Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

The meat used is not lean and is laden with connective tissue, on both of the dishes we chose. In fact we could not even eat one bite but felt bad.
