A traditional chinese restaurant with really good food!
My mother wanted to visit chinatown and we picked this place based on the reviews. Turned out to be a good choice.
Our party of 11 ordered the special set menu which consisted of about 10 courses. It was so much food!
I enjoyed most of it although maybe some of it takes some getting used to (like jellyfish or the slimy soup). Everything was very well prepared, the service was very attentive and overall it was a fun experience. I would recommend it to anyone who want's to try authentic Chinese food, we had a very nice evening.

We ate here on a Monday evening before a trip to the theatre. Five people including two teenage children. Food was very good, traditional chinese with a really comprehensive menu. Spicy prawns particularly good. The service was prompt and attentive.

we went here as it rated as one of the top ten chineses but I must admit I was not over impressed I ordered hot and sour soup and it was the blandest i have ever tasted, i could only locate one shrimp in the whole bowl!!! no chicken to be seen as per menu, we had the peking duck and that was completely overpriced it was served on a bed of prawn crackers to pad it out, only a few pieces of duck and some neatly cut crispy skin, we asked for soup first and duck to follow, but for some reason the waitress said the soup was not ready so bought us the duck first. the main course i had chicken and yellow bean sauce and hubby squid in black bean sauce was ok but really nothing to shout about. All in all very average, quite overpriced and not what its supposed to be cracked up to be.

Very popular restaurant and justifiably so. Dim sum are tasty, prepared to order and served piping hot. Tea is checked and refilled regularly. Service is brisk and you will not be encouraged to linger during busy periods. One of the best places for dim sum in the chinatown area.

We went there to try the Roast Duck and was left disappointed! We also tried a few other dishes but the quality is average compared to what is on offer in the area.
The service was good and friendly and the price reasonable.
