The atmosphere is very welcoming, the furniture is exquisite and comfortable. The food is tasty but the service is slow. The cost is higher than other Chinese restaurants. Secured parking is available as well.

One needs to be weary of the cleanliness in most Chinese eating establishments in Trinidad . This one is no exception . At first glance one may be fooled . The plates always have residual oil grime on them . I suspect they reuse the contaminated soy and pepper sauce . Many items not available on dim sum menu .... More

My husband and I visiting in June. The restaurant was almost empty. We were seated and the drinks order was taken. The Manager Vena advised us about the Dim Sum menu. We made our choices and the food arrived in a relative short time. The Dim Sum was delicious but not filling so we ordered fried rice, noodles and shrimps.... More

I first reviewed this restaurant back in 2010 when they had opened. Since then they have had some changes. Most of their original waitstaff have returned to China leaving mainly local servers. I hate to say this, but as many Trinidadians know, local servers tend to mean poor service. In this case the quality of service has dropped. While the... More

Food is great...one of the best Chinese food restaurants around. Ambience and service can be a bit better but I continue to go for the great tasting food.

A wide çhoice of Din Sum at very reasonable prices. Traditional Chinese food also available. The service has improved tremendously since it first opened.You get dishes I have not found in other restaurants. You find a lot of ethnic Chinese patronising the establishment. Which is always a good indication that the food is the genuine article.
