I was recommended by my son to try their laksa which he and his girlfriend both felt was great. It turned out to be a little disappointment for me because I had a lot of laksa before including some more authentic ones in Singapore and I found that the product here is not to my liking. The soup base does have a faint taste of shrimp (came from cooking the soup base with shrimp shells I guess) but it was not thick enough and I prefer much more coconut juice for the richness of taste. One interesting thing about the bowl of noodle was unlike others, they serve two types of noodles in the bowl one thin and one thick which gives one a variety of chewiness. They served two shrimps, half an egg, fish ball/slice, 2 mussels, and some fried tofu puff on the noodle. Portion is reasonably big. It is good though that when you order the Laska,at HK$88 you can pay $20 to order a glass of strawberry milkshake which is not a bad deal (Also not thick nor rich). My son ordered a chicken Caesar at $110 and the look is so so. Business was really quiet at around 6:30pm with a few tables only. They serve buffet as well but I am not prepared to give it a try. One more thing, though they do not have many guests, it took a couple of minutes before somebody get back to the reception booth to show us our table.

We dined here one night and experienced great food and service. Excellent value for money. Can't fault the menu and there was either an a la carte option or buffet set meal.

Good variety on the menu. Service was a little slow at the entry point. We strood for a long while waiting to be seated and at one point were ignored by the wait staff who were discussing rosters or something similar. Felt that this was poor.

We called in for a drink and we were so impressed with the meals we saw coming out we returned in the evening for a meal. It was a buffet style starter, delicious soup, bread and salads. Then we had our main course brought to us. It was cooked and presented well. The food was good and the price was reasonable.
