“Take away”
Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

I ordered a take away from here and I have to say it was extremely ordinary. Perhaps the food is nicer dining in.

“Rip off!!!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

The food is good, but this is the only restaurant where I have been where if your table of 18 orders the banquet, and the table of 4 next to you order the same banquet, they come out with the same portions, and try to divide them up between the number in your table. For nearly $60, plus drinks, I starved, and had to go to McDonald's afterwards.

Service was ok, but I don't like it when the staff talk amongst themselves in Mandarin, and especially when they talk about the customers not drinking enough to justify them having the booking (guess what, I am fluent in Mandarin, only they didn't know that).

Drinks were exhorbitantly overpriced, don't even think about ordering a glass of wine as most are marked up about 1300%.

“Getting a bit tired”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

We have been going to this restaurant for many years but over the last 12 cmonths have noticed that the quality of the food has gone off a bit and it is becoming mose erxpensive to dine there.

There is no dount that the service ios still very good but cannot help but wonder if the chef has changed at some stage.
Certainly not the restaurant which is knew would provide a constantly good meal.

“Delicious and excellent service”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

It was a last minute booking for a large group. They fit us in and the meal was delicious. Their wine list is exceptional. Very enjoyable.

“Great food!”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

Visited this restaurant mid week with a small group.

A large group arrived during our meal and the service and attention from staff subsequently dropped.

However, the food was unbeleivably good and highly recommended.
