The New City Cantonese has a very good lunch time special. This restaurant has been here for years, so they are doing something right.

A pleasantly decorated restaurant but the food is below average. Agree with other reviewers that chicken in satay was stringy and dry. We mentioned this whilst paying the bill but there was not the slightest sign on the waitresses face that she had heard or cared. The staff are sullen and un-engaging. They should do better, particularly as there is... More

Food was OK. Staff on the other hand are dreadful. No hello. No goodbye and we were gestured to as to where we were going to sit. Whoever owns/runs this establishment needs to greatly improve on it's customer service. Won't be back. Felt like a burden.

The other sting in the tail was the cost of the soft drinks. Because their was a special lunchtime menu price,they conned you when ordering soft or hard drinks. I think a... More
