We had a family dinner here last Saturday and it was full. We waited for about 10 minutes until we are seated. There was no available high chairs for our kids but it's okay. Orders were fast and the waiter is friendly. He memorize all our orders without writing them down. We were amazed. Typical Chinese foods with big servings... More

Time permitting, we love to come here for breakfast. We always order their newly baked breads, specially, the Malay cake, siopao or lugaw (congee). And the coffee is freshly brewed. If you wanted fancy, one can pre-order their chicken emerald pie... a large pie, good for pasalubong. There is a large parking area near their place where the guard give... More

When i happen to be in Malate area, i never missed this restaurant. I always order for their special siopao, my "pasalubong" to my family but, you should be there before lunch time or else there will be nothing left for you.

This really was the worst Chinese food I've ever eaten. I hate to write such a bad review, but there were 7 of us that ate and the feeling was unanimous. If you want cheap food and don't care about the taste, this is the place for you. I should say, the plain steamed white rice was good.

Ate lunch on a Tuesday. Restaurant was nearly at full capacity. Prompt, efficient service. Had the fried rice, chicken viceroy and the sweet and sour pork - all were good. Reasonably priced. Table was still somewhat dirty from previous guests (crumbs and flakes from egg rolls?) but added to the charm of the place. I'd go back.

Good place to get Chinese food. The service is fast and parking is available. The waitress who took our order was very knowledgeable of the food. The place is also kid-friendly. The toilets are clean.
