“Delicious Chinese Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have been going to this restaurant since it first opened and it's a great restaurant for tasty Chinese dishes. Here is a run-down of the restaurants :

Food : Popular dishes are the suckling pig and Peking duck which is amongst the best in Miri. There is also a very popular dessert dish of honeydew with milk and scoops of vanilla ice-cream - a calorific sugar bomb so fair warning there.

Price : This is not a cheap Chinese restaurant but for the food choices that you will probably choose anyway, it's worth the price.

Service : This is a difficult classification to make as different people have different expectations. Mine happens to be lower than most and I will put up with a lot before I do get upset about food service. Malaysian Chinese have a strong expectations of good restaurant service whereas Mainland Chinese service staff are not known for their strong courtesy points. You may have to follow-up on drinks and food orders but honestly, it's no different from following up at busy hawker centers. This isn't a 5-star or a Michelin-star restaurant but the food is just as good.

Ambience : Generally, it's ok except that it can get noisy in the open area. There are private rooms but it can get stuffy a wee bit because they don't seem to air it out much. Just open the door for a bit and it should be fine. Like I said, it takes awhile to get me rilled up.

Special Occasions : If you bring along a birthday cake, they will help to keep it chilled in their fridge and play a Chinese birthday song over the speakers for you.

“One of the best chinese restaurant in Miri”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

This restaurant serves one of their best Peking Duck available in Miri. The Dim Sum is great and cheap too. Affordable for the local. Definitely more worthwhile for the westerner friends.

Price is slightly a little bit higher than the average but they serves good food.

As for special occasion, early booking is a MUST. Sometimes the staffs can make a bit of mistake while racing against the time and trying to keep on with the orders. More casual staffs will be hired (same goes with any of the hotels around in Miri or everywhere else), but it still does not affect much on the quality of the food.

“Rubbish service and Bad staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Unless u wear a rolex, they wont serve u well. They dont revognise brands like tag heuer, patek, cartier and etc. Food is great but for the sake of complaining about its service since it is about the experience i am rating it 1. Bad service spoils the taste of the food.

U can read the bad service there, here the commoners complain. Rich people don't know how to use facebook in this part of town. The captains were rude to my mum. I've had enough of their lousy service

“Very good dim sum”

Go there for the dim sum (until 2 pm only). Very tasty, very fresh and at a very affordable price.
