I chose this restaurant based on reviews here and was willing to wait 10 minutes for a table for 1 to become available. The place was lively and busy and as a result I will forgive them for taking a long time to take my order. The menu was interesting and varied. I chose the half fish in Sweet and Sour sauce and a noodle dish (Shanghai Noodles Ra Mein ?). The fish was ok, cooked reasonably well and then coated in a sticky sweet and sour sauce. It was not bad and alone then I may have scored this place 3 stars. The noodle dish, however, tasted of burnt oil, meaning the wok cooking it was far too hot - a very clumsy mistake by the chef and one he should have realised straight away.
Next problem was the bill. On arriving at your table they our you tea and place down snakage, both of which you are then charged for. Now I as going to drink tea anyhow, but the other is just pure blatant piss taking, and seeming to be common practice around here now. These of course appeared on the bill along with the fish, noodles and service. Now in my head, having read 15 HKD for the tea and guessing 10HKD for the nuts, I estimated my bill would be around 250 HKD including the 10% service charge, so I as very surprised when it came to over 290 - all I can think is they put another dish on the bill instead of the noodles - being written in Cantonese I could not tell.
Would I go back there - no not a chance and I would suggest others think twice. Perhaps it was good and has just gone down hill in recent times as most the reviews here are from 2 years back.
