The classier vibe at this Chinatown restaurant is in stark contrast to many of the Chinese restaurants in this part of town, where 'no-frills' can be a generous description. Here, expect a classy, modern look with branding everywhere.
Dim sum is available at lunchtimes, with dishes ranging from sesame prawn rolls, cheung fun with dried scallops and har gau dumplings to tripe in black pepper sauce, marinated spicy duck tongues and chicken claws in Chinese wine.
The evening menu also goes from well-known Chinese crowd-pleasers to dishes many Westerners might balk at. Expect, then, roast duck, kung po chicken and stir-fried beef in oyster sauce alongside fish and tofu soup with preserved egg, and braised sea cucumber with fish lips.

What a disappointment after reading so many good reviews. I wonder who writes these reviews? This restaurant are too concerned about receiving tips than ensuring the food that they serve is edible. Had inedible chili prawns ( 6 for 13.90!). They were bathed in salt. Swallowed one, sent the rest back. The server apologized but they charged me!! The server did ensure however that I knew that the tip was not included!
