This is a little upstairs restaurant by the marina, with very welcoming staff, and so obliging. The lady was so helpful, we like to order a few things and share, and always include Singapore vermacelli, and the lady said this was a prawn dish, personally I don't like prawns, and I usually pick them out so she suggested she make...

As soon as I showed my card explaining why I can't eat gluten, the lady on the door greeted us and assured me that they were well versed in providing gluten-free food. It helped enormously that her English was fluent, as I could be 100% confident that my dietary requirements would be met. The chef cooked each dish carefully, even... More

This Chinese is not a fancy restaurant the surroundings are plain but clean. I went because of the good reviews about their knowledge of gluten free food and I was not disappointed. The lady who took our order was extremely knowledgeable on gluten free to the point that she made sure to tell me that although the rice noodles should... More

Only a tiny upstairs restaurant but the staff are welcoming and work hard to provide a very tasty Chinese meal. Beware, we found the portions are large. Good views across marina as well.

Went in here expecting a good relaxed evening, what we found was what we would describe as no frills. The sauces with every starter and main was very thin, not what you would normally associated with chinese food, there was no extra dressing with any of the meals which, Is the norm in any other Chinese resteraunt we have visited,...

Went to restaurant a few nights after it reopened after the New Year break and it was every bit as good as previous visits. The chilli beef and sweet & sour pork were excellent, good portions and a good price for a restaurant right on the marina. The staff are always pleasant and very helpful.
