“Not very friendly, but pretty good food”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

They were busy, but that's no excuse for not being friendly and welcoming. I ordered spring rolls, hot and sour soup, and a beef dish (with leeks). It came in reverse order. The beef...was steaming hot...and arrived on a sizzling plate. The soup was warm at best. The spring rolls were hot, but didn't have much in them. With a little more effort, this place would be amazing. They could be nicer though...I neer felt comfortable being there.

“Food was fresh and hot”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

After eating at some real dives this place was a great find. All the food ordered was fresh and hot. We got sizzling beef with leeks, dumplings, noodles and seasonal vegetables. I thought the service was fine although little English is spoken there and the elevator ride up the food tower was like being a packed sardine! I would highly recommend this place to have a great lunch or dinner. They give a discount for dining at tea time with no service charge and a percent off discount. That was a nice surprise.

“Good food, good price.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Late lunch here was quiet. The service was efficient and not rushed. We enjoyed the Lanzhou Style Tan-Tan Noodles, Dumplings in Chilli, and Peking Style Dumplings. The room is brightly lit, but pleasant. We found it inexpensive (HK$141 for 2).

“Great food/service but reataurant policy spoilt the meal”
Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Had a great meal at this restaurant for a birthday party but when we asked for some forks to eat a small birthday cake that we had brought to the restaurant they wanted to charge $50. Having spent $2500 the restaurants policy left a sour taste in my mouth. It's more the principle rather than the cost they wanted to charge. The restaurants policy now means I won't got there again or will I recommend any friends to dine there. Sorry Modern China but you've just lost a few diners.

“Extremely Yummy Cuisine”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

This restaurant is very convenient to get there because of the location in Causeway Bay. I always visit it when I ever go back to Hong Kong. The dessert plain bread with condensed milk is the best menu choice.
