“Really not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I am told by colleagues that the Ro Ro takeaway in the food court is better than the restaurant... I hope so, because the restaurant is pretty bad. Chipped crockery, the vinegar pot lid held on with cling film ... Our starter arrived - hot and sour soup, but basically tasting like it was from a packet. Then our Peking duck... normally this is a dish to die for, one of my favourite period - so this was such a bitter disappointment. The Hoi Sin sauce tasted like some cheap imitation, the cucumber was passed through a shredder and soggy and limp rather than nicely cut, pancakes were damp and sticky like they had been badly microwaved (which I suspect was the case), and the onions were bland and again badly presented. Service was so-so - a little slow given that we were one of, what, two tables in the whole place. In all, what should have been a total taste delight was instead an utter disappointment, and not a cheap one either....
