What's Authentic when you use MSG in the food. Ate there once un-knowingly. When you do not eat MSG and you taste the food you can tell the difference. I like my Brain thank you. I want to keep my memory going for a long time. I called to confirm my suspicion and sure enough I was told that MSG... More

Good day. Our recipes and Chefs are directly from the Chinese restaurant district in Kolkata, India so we can assure you that the food is authentic. Although MSG is used in quite a few dishes we do appreciate that there are people who do not eat MSG so all of our a la carte items can be made to order... More

Perhaps the best Indian Chinese restaurant in the country and the region. Must have dishes include salt and pepper prawns, chicken spring rolls, hakka noodles, chicken manchurian and the spicy ginger fish. Late Chef Francis did a great job with the restaurant and Chef Manoj is carrying on the legacy very well. Request them that the go a bit easy... More

Ambience and fantasy in the food at the absolutely best price. Nice staff. My favourite choice to have an easy lunch with wife when we are looking for something over the average but for a quick stop.

We enjoyed our evening in this very beautifully decorated Asían fusión restaurant. Service was impecable and helpfull. The Menú was a bit confussing as we expected Indian cuísine and It is more Chinese fusión with Indian spice influences Food. We had some interésting and good apetizers, main courses were average yet diferent. Great ambience in Restaurant full of Beautiful people.... More

Have eaten here many times! Tasty food and beautiful decor at restaurant in Woodbrook. Love the garlic fish, eggplant and the roasted noodles! Dishes are a bit pricey though! Open on public holidays and Sunday's which is a plus! Take away locations in San Fernando at Gulf City Mall and Saddle Road in Maraval.

My husband and I made reservations about 45 mins before our arrival. Fortunately, we were able to do so, considering it was a Friday night @ 8pm. PARKING: Parking was readily available along Taylor Street. SERVICE: We were seated as soon as we reached and our drinks orders were taken. Our server was very helpful in selection of drinks and...

Hakka's ambience is lovely - the low lighting and decor in red. The menu is very large which can selecting a task - but the staff really make great recommendations and we went with what they recommended and it had to be the best fried mushrooms i ever had. The corn salad was amazing. Overall, food is excellent here.

Now let me start off by saying that the food was excellent as usual. But the service was terrible, Firstly the waiter came and took our orders and that was all well and fine but when he returned with the water we got them in varying types of glasses including brandy glasses to which we had to pass down to...
