Our family went to dinner there to celebrate my sister's birthday. The food was excellent, the service left nothing to be desired. Great time!

Had a great meal here. I ordered a fee starters instead of a main and enjoyed it immensely. The dim sum selection was really, really good. In a great location in the middle of the popular Holetown the restaurant is close to other bars and...More
