Go to spot for a good Chinese style meal. Food is excellent and the setting of the restaurant is ideal as well.

Booked room 31 for dinner last night and the food was nice, although not very authentic Chinese. The starters were a little too salty but once the Chef was informed the rest of the dishes were made to taste ;) However the service was excellent, which made amends for any short comings.

I've never been disappointed whenever I've dined at this restaurant. the food is super tasty and the portion sizes are good too. I've dined downstairs as well as upstairs and I feel the service is better downstairs at the main restaurant. One suggestion maybe they could improve on their private dining rooms we went with a group of 10 ppl... More

Had a dinner outing at this place on the roof top. food was really nice. specially the appetisers. the quantity was reasonable. Also this place has BYOB policy. either rooftop or private room is good for large crowd dinner. roof top is best for candle light romantic dinner if its less crowded.

Had been visiting this place regularly. Recently noticed that there portion sizes have increased again as before (about 2 years back). Not crowded during lunch hours on weekends. Friendly, helpful staff. Bit expensive.
