“Great taste for your money....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

The decor is a nice contemporary style....Food is tasty with big portions. Prices are very affordable. Service is a bit lacking. The waitress always seem to disappear. All in all, have always had a good time and left happy with a full stomach :)

Well worth a visit to experience the chinese/indian mix of food.

“Great decor, inexpensive food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

We were a party of 10. The service was very good. We ordered many dishes, but when they came to the table everything looked the same. Even the taste of each dish was barely discernable from the other. Really was not impressed with the food, so I doubt that we will be back. Must say though that the decor was quite impressive

“It's alright - but nothing to go wow over”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

This was my first visit with my wife to this restaurant, while the rest of the family had visited this establishment twice before.

My first impressions:
- The venue is clean, the decorations are modern and contemporary; though I felt that red was too overpowering to the eyes and furthermore it is somewhat offensive to include a bust of the Buddha in an environment where meat is served.
- Staff are friendly, though a bit slow.
- The food. We were going for vegetarian menu. Their selection is OK, though I found they were not very flexible with accommodating to the needs of vegetarian customers 100%. I heard from other family members, that certain dishes were not consistent in terms of taste, presentation and delivery. I have to agree with this, as an appetizer that was ordered was re-ordered as a main course..and the sauce and presentation were different.

It would be noteworthy to sample the non-vegetarian menu for consistency.
The overall score I would give this restaurant is 5 out of 10.
It's alright, but nothing to go wow over.

“Overrated but ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

The value for portion size is very good but this food, although fairly tasty, is not genuine Hakka. The service is always luck-and-chance, from friendly and quick to surly and extremely slow. Not high on my list of go-to restaurants.

“Great Prices but Food Fairly Alright”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

The place is really nice for one thing,the staff are friendly ,but there is a long wait to get the servers attention or maybe i was just there twice on a bad day.The food is really good,not compared to authentic hakka food its a little less spicy but the prices are excellent for the quantity and quality of food you get
