Went there for the first time last week, and was so impressed, went back again a week later.

Could not recommend this place highly enough.

Their menu is a real twist on the normal dumplings, with some other amazing dishes available.

The food was sensational, but what set it apart on both visits was the waitress we had. If more restaurants had girls like this they would thrive. I didn't get her name, but i personally complimented her as we left.

Will definitely be going back.

The only downside, was the Salt & Pepper Calamari needed a bit ore kick to it, otherwise, it was sensational.

We came here on the recommendation of our hotel. We had a short wait for a table, which we spent across the road in a pub, and were treated to an amazing parade of dim sum as part of their Tuesday Night Special. More food than four of us could eat came to our table, so we had to pick and choose what to have, but every dish was tasty. Flavours were well-balanced and service, even when we were turning dishes away, always came with a smile.

I have been here twice and the first time the food was good but service pretty average. Went again with some friends for their all you can eat night and the food was horrendous and service worse than last time.

Both time we had to ask several times for our drinks after ordering and staff were very unhelpful. Whilst I enjoyed the food the first time, the all you can eat is an abomination! It all tasted rubbery and awful. If going do not do all u can eat!

Great service. Delicious food brought around on trays for viewing/selection. Exotic teas for tasting. A little noisy. Will go again!
