“Best Cantonese!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

We beat the lunch crowd and got there around 11:30am. We got a table at the corner away from the crowd that joined in later on. No restaurant can be as clean as this. Servers were constantly cleaning the restaurant from paneled wall to air conditioning vents. The food is charming delicious. Nothing is ever too salty or spicy. The flavor is perfectly on the dot. Though the portion is surprisingly small but it turned out just right. The Chinese crepe made me addicted to it. The fish ball made with sun dried mandarin peel was voted everyone's favorite at the table. The flaky pastry egg tart was an excellent finish to the meal. Must go back to try its dinner menu.

“Delicious home-style Cantonese cuisines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

We had dinner at this unassuming Cantonese restaurant. As a Cantonese, I got to eat old-style Cantonese cuisine, like steamed pork patty, double-boiled soup, steamed whole grouper, etc. The dishes were very well prepared and service was great. This is the BEST Cantonese restaurant I have ever visited.

“Lip-smacking eats on the pricey side”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2011

Smallish place with tables & chairs arranged in rather crampish quarters, served to add to the dimsum atmosphere. This however didn't distract us from business at hand, which was to savour the tasty treats. Our friend's elder sis told us this place was usually jampacked, so she made reservations the moment we called her. Good thing too as empty tables filled up quickly.
Largish shrimp wantons served with vinegar (like siu-loong-bao) were quite yummy (4 per serving) - best to eat hot as cold steamed dimsum is not palatable. HK is famous for polo buns - soft buns topped with crispy layers of various flavours (sweet or savoury). Not a wonder with this creation of polo-charsiu buns (3 per serving) - bite into the crispy layer with juicy chunks of hot charsiu filling within. A must-order! Altho' I wasn't a fan of deepfried stuff, the old-fashioned springrolls (3 per plate, cut in half) were crispy even tho' left for some time, not oily, perfectly sized for 2 bites, simple filling of grated turnip & beansprouts. Old-fashioned pancake was a small crispy disc cut in 4, a few dried prawns atop. Nothing fancy but surprisingly tasty. Cheongfan with generous charsiu was good. Mini glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaf was tasty - good things do come in small packages. Deepfried mini fish (about 6-7 per plate) was probably more suited for beer drinkers as they made great bar snacks - not a fan as it was quite tough after a while, didn't like picking small bones out of mouth either. Chiu-chow dumplings (3 per plate) ok. After many cups of tea to wash down the oil, we had almond tea for dessert. Stuffed to the gills. At HKD497 for 3, it's on the high side but I guess diners must be satisfied as they were made up of business people, families, tourists, local & foreign.

“average - but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2010

I love Chinese food but maybe I don't love Cantonese food, I am from the UK. There are a lot of ingredients that don't appeal, such as pig's tongue and colon, etc. You get the picture. The only vegetable dish we ordered was thick and gloopy, too much thickener. it was very average food and quite expensive
