This is the Chinese restaurant of choice when we go out to celebrate. The service is good and the food is even better. They serve dimsum in the morning and dinner in the evening. The servers all speak some English which makes it easy to order food if you don't speak Chinese. They have set menus to choose from if you are out with a party and don't know what to pick. They have a la carte items too, which is what my family likes to order.

There are a couple of dishes I highly recommend and they are the crab and fish maw soup, porkchop in champagne sauce and walnut shrimp. The porkchop resembles a sweet and sour sauce but better. The walnut shrimp is rich in flavour and under the creamy sauce is a crispy shrimp.

This was an incredibly busy restaurant make sure you get a number from the harassed lady at the front desk but worth the wait. It operates on the order from the menu system once we'd figured it out didn't take long to get some food. Top quality and very large portions all fresh and delicious. Not being familiar with the system or the serving size we found we'd overordered. Our waiter was more than happy to package our last orders up in a takeaway box. As the name says this is a seafood restaurant there is not a lot of dishes that aren't seafood if that's an issue for you. Although can testify to the delicousness of the chicken feet. We thought it cheap most portions costing $3-$4.
Also we caught a bus from our hotel in the city stopped almost at the door very easy and cheap, so it's location is not a problem if you don't have a car.
