“One of the best Chinese food in the city”
Review of Chen

Reviewed 26 December 2017

For those who understand Asian food this is one of the best places in the city. They cook extraordinary fried sushi, dim sum, salad leaves with seafood and many other delicious plates. The owner is very pleasant and extremely educated Chinese lady with exceptional sense of humor. All staff is well trained and they are very efficient. Most of the days the place is full - you need to make your reservation up front. This place has a lot of loyal customers who love to come and to repeat wonderfull food experience.

I have eaten Asian food all my life and this was a very sad experience. The sushi was literally chucked together, no finesse whatsoever. The only saving grace was the fish appeared fresh.

The Peking duck was a travesty, a pre marinated boiled duck that had obviously just been roasted and carved with a knife, no shredding.

Pretty upset that such a poor restaurant gets such high reviews on here, you just wonder who writes them....

The quality of the food is good. The server was not the best but really decent. A really good choice could be the tasting dish.

Menu is OK, with a large variety of asian dishes. Mostly they come in European versions of what you may have had in other places (compared to China, US or UK versions of asian dishes). Curries are not recommended at all - gooey, processed sauces. Rice needs to be ordered separately. No really spicy dishes. Sushi is middle of the road. Service is very inconsistent, as is actual food quality and consistency of preparation and tastes. A few very friendly waiters, but overall, I find the service has deterirated significantly from 2014 to 2015 and 2016. I will be eating here much less - if at all.

Eating there brought back memories of my stay in Shanghai. The food feels very authentic. All the dumplings and jiaozes are great- the only one that was far from the real thing was the xia long bao. They also made a wonton soup that was not on the menu but was delicious. And they had the green tea mochi I loved!
