However, on this trip back, I was told by friends that it was not really that great anymore and I have to agree with them. Their food is still pretty good but they've put up the... More

We came here three times and tried dumplings, noodle soup and won ton soup. It was all very good and well priced. Staff were friendly. Not much choice for vegetarians but there are a few dishes available.

Superb dumplings and great soups. Service was efficient and helpful. Very good value for money. Location was wrong but hopefully this will be updated, would be a shame to miss out.

Really enjoyed the dumplings and wontons here. Everything was very fresh, portion size was good and prices were ok. Good service from a very friendly local lady. My favourites were the house special spicy wontons and the steamed chicken dumplings, but they really were all very good. Note the location on the TA map is wrong - it is in... More

Tried a veggie vermicelli and veggie noodle dish--both were excellent. Great flavors and portions. Also had the passion fruit juice and honeydew/mint. Passion fruit was good, but the honeydew/mint was amazing. Sad we're leaving tomorrow and can't come back to try more. Highly recommend.

Returned here multiple times in our 3 day stay!! Steamed vegetable Dumplings are amazing and the spicy noodles are also great! Extremely friendly waitress (old lady) unfortunately do not know her name. She spoke good English and was so welcoming and chatty! A must for good food!!
