“Delicious dim sum”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised when i ate here recently. This is not really one of the restaurants frequented by the local chinese community so i thought it would be quite westernised food. I agree with other reviewers that the dim sum is pretty good here and i enjoyed them even more than the main meal which itself was quite delicious and portion size generous. I would say that the dim sum is more expensive here than in the more authentic Chinese places in town however it was a nice treat and I would recommend this place.

“Dining with dim sum”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Finally some decent dim sum to be had in Glasgow. Nice restaurant, good service. The dim sum were fantastic. My advice is splash out on a selection of these. In comparison the main meals were a bit of an anti climax

“A gem of a Restaurant with very attentive service”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

A group of 9 of us visited, the meal was excellent and the service first class. Nothing was too difficult.......apart from the joys of learning to use chopsticks for the first time!
