“Authentic Chinese, Great Food”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Celebrated my husband's birthday with an amazing dinner. The food was simply superb. I had an advantage of having a friend who worked there, my appreciation to Brahmie, for his suggestions and recommendations. The prices are reasonable long as you can estimate well. Popular Chinese specialties will always be expensive so review the menu well because they have a lot more to offer than lapu-lapu and peking duck. The ambiance was great except that i think the chairs needs some re-upholstering. Also, they need to check and clean the toilets every hour or so to make sure standards are kept. The girls even sang us a Happy Birthday Song. The fireworks added fun to the visit.
They also have private rooms for your small groups' intimate gatherings like engagement dinners and office parties.

“great venue and good food! Whoah -- the price!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

I took my family for Christmas Day dinner and it was a good choice, we had our wedding luncheon there two years ago and we were pleased. The food was great but the price was exorbitant! I wish our contact there would have aid, "Sir, I think you have ordered too much" or "Sir, consider ordering smaller sizes." From a business perspective I wouldn't offer that but it would have been appreciated, nevertheless! the food was good and service great!

“Good Food, Bad Service”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

First time to eat here and the very nice ambiance is noticeable. A lady, whom I take as the manager, was right at the door greeting us. She offered the menu and treated us with utmost hospitality. Then we picked our order; the lady had recommendations which we appreciated. We had to occupy two tables because we were a large group. The lady was very helpful telling us that she will assign a waiter to us so that both tables will have the same food. Sounds like A+ service, doesn't it?

Then the orders start coming in...and the horrors, too. One of our tables have less food than the other! This is shameful because people there are our visitors. What's worse is that when you give additional orders, there seems to be no one authorized to take it. When we wish to place orders, the waiters would say that they will tell their ma'am about it, as if orders need to be approved by that lady! And the drinks! we were given more number of drinks than we ordered..and they are not even what we ordered! For example, I ordered 1 watermelon shake and 1 pinapple shake; I was given 2 watermelon shakes! We were forced to accept this because we were so thirsty. It took them very long to deliver drinks. If you ask them for anything, you have to ask seeeeveral times and seeeeveral people before you get it.

It was an awful experience. To give them credit though, the food was good.

“Very elegant setting!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Ala carte and package menu available. Very elegant yet cozy atmosphere. Waiters always ready to attend to our needs. Fresh seafoods. Reasonably-priced!

“Good Affordable Chinese Food”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We dined using 2 Ensogo vouchers , one was a set menu for 4 pax and the other one was an order of half fried chicken . The set menu was composed of cold cuts , fish fillet , salt and pepper spare ribs, fried wanton , yang chow fried rice and dessert . Trully filling and satisfying ! The fried chicken was crispy and good but portioning was a bit small .

Due to our huge appetite , we also ordered additional yang chow fried rice and steamed shrimp . The yang chow was superb - super yummy and with lots of shrimp . The steamed shrimp was very fresh and nicely cooked except for some bitter taste on the head portion where you usually see the fat . Pls look into this as this was the only minus factor .

The fruit shakes were refreshing and real , made from real fruits and not just shaved ice and syrup and flavorings . We had kiwi shake , banana and green mango shakes . Great to have with the well-selected combination of Chinese dishes .

The restaurant was spacious and clean . The pretty chandelier- looking decor lights on its high ceiling gave a decent and luxurious ambience . The location was relaxing as this was facing bayside and near the viewdeck .

Service was very good !
