Beautiful decor and atmosphere. The menu can be a bit overwhelming with choices but that's not necessarily a bad thing! I finally settle on the Salt and Pepper King Prawns and they were delicious. Prices were a bit high but there's no question about the...More

Entree plates to share excellent. Main courses The pork dish was far too spicy as was the Marron. The tea smoked duck was nothing like the recipe from the China Doll chef on the internet.
