“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a good place to go and have a reasonabley priced lunch. It is very quick, very clean and very yummy. It was also airconditioned which is great in the heat of the middle of the day.

“Place is poorly maintained”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Food was okay. The menu have a lot to offer. I just think that the place need some renovation work. They have other branches around KK I think. I only went back because of the varieties.

“Food is not as nice as the restaurant name.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We had our lunch here. They have various choices of promotional lunch sets (11am - 2pm) which are quite a good deal if compare to ordering the ala-carte menu. The set lunch comes with a drinks, main dish and a dessert - 'gui ling gao' (herbal jelly).
We ordered a set of their cheese-bake rice with 'yin-yang' and a set of 'kon lau' duck noodle with 'special soya milk'. The cheese-bake rice is so dry, not chessy and taste totally far different that those that we tried at Hong Kong or even other local restaurants (eg. Kim Gary Restaurant). The 'yin-yang' tastes too much of coffee which also not up to the standard of basic HK style 'yin-yang'. Besides that, the glass looks so not-appertising as it's full of stains and drops of the yin-yang by the side!!!!! I personally feel that the "special soya milk" tasted awful.
The only thing that we are satisfied with is the duck noodle and the dessert.
The interior of this restaurant looks a wear-out... especially their ceiling....
Personally, sorry to say that I won't recommend this restaurant to my friends and relatives.

“Try the Wan Ton”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The wan ton and noodle with soya sauce is good. The wan ton made with fresh prawns. The duck and barbecue pork is average. The shop is clean and i cant see any problem with the hygiene.
