We went to this restaurant based on a previous Trip Advisor review. Our recommendation is to try to read between the lines before making a decision. We had five dishes, all were steamed except the baby bok choy which was sauteed and soggy. We had the clams in garlic, scallops in garlic, ginger, and green onions, prawns in garlic; and all three dishes were tough, dry, overcooked and on top of that the portions were miniscule. Last (and least of all) was the steamed fish (pomfret) with ginger, garlic, green onions, and soy. For a three pound fish there was not much to eat even for two people, This, as it turned out, was the worst dish served. Bloody on the inside around the backbone and thoroughly tasteless. Eat on HKI or in Kowloon.

We had the fried lobster and sweet and sour squid. It was quite simply some of the best seafood we have had anywhere in the world. The poor lobster was brought to us alive for our inspection before he was cooked. Of course, it has to be washed down with gallons of Tsing Tsao beer. Raymond was a great host. He made us feel like we were in his home. We then went swimming and came back for more beer while we were waiting for the ferry. Raymond brought us frozen towels - it was soooo hot - and chated while we had more beer. Great food, service and view.
