Unlike previous years, the food now is horrible. The meat in the bbq pork was old and hard and had an unpleasant smell. The siew mai did not taste authentic and was stringy. The beef in rice cakes was over-cooked and not fresh meat. The...More

Putting Caustic Soder in Salt Shakers prevents me fro giving a good review of a recent visit. I was lucky I don’t use salt and lucky they didn’t use Caustic Soda in the cooking.

DO NOT waste your money coming here for the live seafood. It was a terrible & very expensive dining experience for my wife and I. We ordered a mud crab @ $110/kg. There was hardly any meat on the crab and it was very watery....More

Response from David J | Reviewed this property |
Latest fine was for supplying CAUSTIC SODA instead of SALT because caustic soda and salt were stored in unlabeled containers near each other. They should be shut down. Permanently.
