We were very confused initially by the menu. Our wait staff was very willing to assist us and dinner was phenomenal. No complaints, only that we couldn’t make it back a second time during our trip. Thank you for a great experience!

We stumbled across this Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. The food was amazing and the best Chinese we have ever had anywhere in the world. The prawns and chicken were so succulent. Staff were friendly and very good service. Well worth a visit.

Good service, nice decor. Food was good although came out a little cold. This place would be good if you had a large group of people. There are better in China town but they are small and busier. Nice staff, very efficient.
