This restaurant started off as Chinese food buffet at an affordable price. Hence the popularity and crowd. What I totally dislike is it isn't possible to book a table in advance and they use monosodium glutamate in their cooking. It is strange because this is a controversial ingredient and used only in street foods in oriental countries. Not something expected... More

This is the place one will get authentic Chinese food. Rates may be higher compared to other joints, but you can blindly get an awesome experience of taste and value for money. The ambiance, service, presentation & garnishing....it gets full marks all round.

Had lunch buffet. Asked about soup and starters but never brought them. When we asked they simply went to the same buffet and brought us what we had already selected. Lunch buffet was over 1000/- per person after taxes and fees. Not worth that! Disappointing.
