“very overpriced. food and service were below average.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

we had the one in The Sultan hotel.
as the title says, for a price like that the food and service were terrible.
our first waitress seem didnt know anything about anything although the other one was much more professional in terms of serving our food.

my Dan Dan szechuan noodle tasted average with nothing in it beside noodle, sprinkles of sesame seeds, and chilli soup it seems. My cousin had the prawn vermicelli with pieces of char siu i think. that was okay but it came out really slow.

the plus point was the dumpling, forgot what it was, some kind of sweet bean/lotus paste in a puff pastry skin with savoury egg-yolk taste in the middle. small pieces but quite delicious.

overall i expected more, will i go back there and recommend it? unlikely

“Terrible Food, Terrible Prices, Terrible Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The food is very so-so and the portions are terribly small compared to the prices. When you order dim sum, don't expect to get four pieces in your tray...you pay minimum Rp 20,000 for three pieces. Believe me, there are much better restaurants in Jakarta such as Ming in Epicentrum or any of the Duck King outletswhere you will get delicious food with proper portions.

“Nice dumplings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Delicious Chinese food when you want it.

Not too expensive, and quite a decent menu list. They have a lot of shops in the major mall.

“Used to be a good one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Long time ago this restaurant was great, food tastes awesome. But something happened, and the quality became so low that I stopped going there.
