We called in here for a spot of lunch. We shared the prawn and pork dim sum and our other friend had chicken noodles . Very efficient service and reasonably price. We really enjoyed the food.

Full, noisy and indeed hot, but a great experience. They are nice, fast and caring. We just went for spring rolls and dumplings as it was 11pm. Spring rolls ok, dumplings fantastic. Jasmin tea very nice. We recommend.
