“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

What you need to know is that the portions are large. I ordered soup, spring rolls, and shrimp with prawns, about what I'd get at home when eating alone. I literally had enough food for three people. The won ton soup had 8 won tons (not the 3 like back home), there were 3 spring rolls ( not 1), and I couldn't finish the shrimp. It was all very good, but not great. Nothing was bad, but nothing was so scrumpish either. Good solid food for about $25 US. Its next to the lower lobby of the Grand Hyatt, so its a good choice if you're staying there. But I wouldn't take a taxi here.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very authentic Chinese food. Great taste, but price is a bit expensive. Service is good.

I ordered fried rice, xiao long bao (a must), Shanghai tofu with minced meat, shrimp wonton soup (my favorite) and friend shrimp with peppers.

For drinks, I had iced Chinese tea.

Most people who eat here are Chinese, Japanese and Asians in general. The taste might be too authentic for non-Asians who often complain about the taste and the service. This is a genuine Chinese restaurant, not a "fake" Americanized one, so many Caucasians won't and can't appreciate the "real" taste; hence, the complaints and low ranking. Service is typical Asian - not overly attentive like in the States. Service and VAT must be added to the bill.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

First time ever experiencing Goose Xiao Long Bao which is never found in my home country, Malaysia. The bao tasted delicious. Other than that, the overall service is very good. Liked the fact that the person serving my table smiled most of the time which is what I liked and found him to be very friendly.

“Good food, expensive, just ok with kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We liked the food here overall, the kids generally found things they liked (they are 4 and 8 and generally LOVE Chinese food.) High quality of food but just overall seemed really expensive for what you get and the service seemed a little cranky. It was a good solid meal, filled our need for something a little different, but I don't think I would go back.
