Have visited this restaurant a few times. There always seems to be a steady stream of Chinese clientele eating there. Food is always very good. Service is quick, but tends to be slightly unfriendly. However would recommend it.

Had abit of homesick and went to this chinese restaurant. Felt like home the minute I got in with waiter speaking cantonese. Food quality comparable to standards in hong kong but cheaper。 如果你是香港黎嘅遊客,食左幾日西餐,呢間啱晒。伙記講廣東話,味道正宗,都抵食

Great lunch with Cantonese dishes which are hardly found in town. Food is served fast after ordered. Very nice staff. Reasonable price. Recommended if you want to try real Cantonese food.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
