Came across this fabulous Chinese Restaraunt by chance, asked leaving diners if it was ok, they highly recommended it and it didn't let us down. Six off us had dinner with a multitude of dishes. All were excellent, service was 10 out of 10. Lady told is about the service charge on the bill, which was appreciate. Must try again!

Our concierge at our hotel suggested we go here. We were not disappointe. We had four appetizers. Three were excellent but the quail was over cooked. The service was perfect and the drinks were good. A bit expensive but very good.

We stumbled upon this place which didn't look like a restaurant from the outside. However the staff and food made up for that. Only downside is the price of it all but if you're unsure when looking for a Chinese restaurant you can guarantee a decent meal here.

Really lovely and spotless restaurant owned by a team who obviously take real pride in their food and service. The food is fresh and truly delicious and service was professional and personal. This is a small place and easily missed. But do look it out. It's a pearl :)

This restaurant comes under the camouflage of an offstreet office block..... in the heart of China town.. Once inside the service is friendly and efficient, choice of food available was excellent. The food was fresh, delicious and well presented. any dietary queries we had were dealt with knowledgeably and efficiently. Would definitely recommend a visit here!

Despite the unassuming entrance, the interior of the restaurant was surprisingly nice. The owner took our order and was helpful in recommending dishes. The servers were extremely polite and attentive - something you rarely find in Chinese restaurants. The food was also pretty good. We ordered four dishes - Dungeness Crab with scallion and ginger, salted duck egg soup with... More

Once again we enjoyed our dinner here. We ate a combination of Chinese food that they served. I have three or four different combinations that a novice can order. Of course you can order al a cart.

Staying in Chinatown
