Loved the chicken feet. That's the only thing I liked. Disappointed in the dumplings they didn't seem fresh and was rather tough on the dough. Atmosphere was lovely though.

This was a good experience, but not great. The meat was overcooked and the flavours were average. The staff were very attentive and the decor appealing however.

Such a busy place that has not only atmosphere but gives you the busy pace you'd expect from the Orient! Grab a seat and let the plates come flying out the kitchen for you the sample! Take some friends along and try variuos different treats!
