I dined here for a family member's birthday. The hospitality was warm and welcoming. The food was very well prepared and the Peking duck is one of the best I've ever had!

We had dim sum lunch yesterday (Friday) with two friends who lived in Doncaster East. The choice of venue was theirs and it was quite agreeable to us. Service was attentive and the waitresses pushing the dim sum trolleys were enthusiastic. The flow of dim...More
