Very good food. Fusion cooking doesn't always work but in this case it does. Great flavours with subtle spices. The homemade tofu is amazing; completely different texture from what is offered elsewhere. Good range of veggie options. The only slight fault was to give complimentary prawn crackers to us both even though one was clearly vegetarian and recognised as such... More

Not sure why this place got such great reviews - although the staff was really friendly the food was terrible. We got a bunch of dim sum dishes and a fish dish. All the meat in the dim sum plates smelled weird (like spoiled) so we definitely felt like we were taking a risk eating it (didn't get sick but... More

Didn't book a table but got in straight away. The dim sum/small eats were all fantastic. Probably worth getting 3 per person. Everything we ate was really top notch - I particularly enjoyed the soft shell crab. Service was good too so I don't feel too bad about accidentally leaving far too big a tip!

Super Asian fusion restaurant, good quality food and drinks with attentive staff. Good range of vegetarian options although a little more spice would have been welcome. Deep fried ice-cream was intriguing! Definitely would visit again.

If I could afford to spend every night in this place, I would. The owner/manager; Trevor, is a gentleman. His employees are the most attentive in the city of Glasgow. I have never wanted for anything in this restaurant. As for the food, I recommend spending £25-40 on dimsum. Then take it from there. For lovers of quality food, get... More

Spotted this restaurant on my way back to the hotel and decoded to come back and check it out. Really glad we did as it proved an excellent choice for a chinese meal. The dim sum small bites were absolutely fantastic and incredibly tasty, as good as we had in Hong Kong we thought. Mains were well cooked, tasty and... More

In general the food was ok. Fresh ingredients, good service. It can get a bit crowded. so it's better if you make your reservations.

We decided to try this for lunch on the spur of the moment during a day at the sales. We had heard very good feedback from various friends who had visited so our expectations were high. We were not disappointed! When we arrived there were only a few tables occupied. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a table. We... More
