Dinner consisted of hot and sour soup, scallops with peppers and black bean sauce, bean curd with ginger and (too many) onions and flat Chinese mushrooms with choi sum. All standard Cantonese restaurant fare. Not great but adequate. The Staff very attentive and pleasant!

Been here before, this time with children who chose expensive things. The food is very good here and the service great but we thought it was a bit expensive this time. Over £250 for six persons [including 2 bottles of wine]
