We had a "reservation" last night. While they had it on the books, they did not have a table for us. There was an empty table but refused to seat us because it was "reserved". For whom??? They could have cared less. The restaurant was cold. They finally seated us near the kitchen. Very noisy. They do not have adequate staff. The food was actually quite good.

Visited for dinner tonight and was very disappointed. Service was terrible, food was not worth the aggravation. We had pre-ordered Peking Duck as they suggest - apparently it sat there and waited for us to arrive as it was cold. It was served as soon as we were seated, prior to ordering drinks or appetizers.

Waiter had too many tables and treated us as an afterthought. Considering the meal was $120 plus tip, the food and service should have been much better. I will not return.

Exotic and familiar dishes prepared with care and attention to each diner's particular needs. Want less tofu and more veggies? Just ask Simon. A must have is the Honey Glazed Prawns...can't seem to come here without getting at least one order; and don't miss the Money Pouches appetizer!
