This Chinese restaurant specialises in seafood, they have loads of tanks full of fish, crabs etc and almost every dish on the menu is a fish dish. We had an amazing lunch here with loads of different dishes going round on our tabletop turntable. Bibs are a must for dealing with the lovely crab in various sauces ...

our family always go here to celebrate special occasions. Their food is authentic Chinese! While the price is a bit expensive, you really get what you paid for. Important to call them in advance to reserve the sea foods you want. We always order Lobster sushi and the lobster head is turned into congee. Their lobster is good too (1... More

Great food, fast service. Make sure you reserve the hainanese chicken ahead of time. Ambience isn't that great but the food will make up for that.

The place itself isn't so great. It is a little on the bawdy side. There is parking but it is in the adjacent lot. The restaurant is busy so the staff isn't always attentive. But their dimsums, including the Xia Long Bao (XLP) are tops. They have a lot of choices on their menu and they don't stare you down... More

They have delicious chinese food and their peking duck they cooked it in different way and served it to you. The hot and sour soup is excellent, the steam lapu lapu was delicious. All their dishes are delicious and will go back again when visit Manila.

Great service, great food. Had a 1 kg mud crab, an A-1 bowl of shark fin AND a Fukkien fried rice for only AU$150. Bargain by Australian standards. But it is the service that made it special also - they made it exactly how we'd like it even though it wasn't on the menu and it tasted great. Really enjoyed... More

Good fresh seafood at a not-so-seedy place in Mabini. The place is well lighted and just across nearby hotels.

Not brilliant at all. Rice cold, my partners food arrived 15 minutes before mine and my watery BEEF Schechuan was awful. After mentioning this to the aloof head waiter i was then thr subject of a lot of tack a tack from waiters. Not that I am bothered but it was in my opinion a poor experience.
