I use TripAdvisor where ever to guide me on my eating experiences where ever I go. The only reason that I went here was that it is listed Number 1 on TripAdvisor. How can this be the number one place to eat over the local Guangzhou cuisine. I feel that I have been tricked into going to a place that should never be at the top of the list. The whole experience was very terrible. I go to a restaurant to eat well and relax and by the time the meal was over I felt rather stressed out thanks to overbilling me and poor quality food.
Overall the quality of the food is not good. I spend a lot of time in the middle east and have eaten a lot of this style of food and that has always been much better.
We arrived early evening as is the custom in China and had to wait to be seated.
The waiting staff seemed to forget that we where sat there and when the waiter finally came to the table my Chinese friend had a moan at them in Cantonese. The waiter did not take this too well and was rather belligerent from that point with our meal being clumsily placed on the table which then annoyed me as I do not like my plate to be dropped in front of me.
The kebab meat was dry and rubbery and I did not finish it, it tasted more like spam than anything else. My friend found the whole experience rather odd and did not appreciate the food or the service.
When we got the bill they had double charged for my friends meal????? how can that happen.
Lots of smoking going on yet that has been outlawed in China now. I am a smoker but I found it unpleasant.....
This place is expensive for GZ and the quality of food and service does not warrant a visit. Its position as No1 is dubious.
We left there still hungry and went to a dumpling shop close by and filled ourselves up on 20 RMB worth of fresh dumplings and nice cold pearl river beer.
