Very delicious food that was beautifully presented. Every dish had so much flavour, that we couldn't want for more. They've set the bar way higher than most asian restaurants in Glasgow. Modern interpretation yet packed with flavour. Owner was very gracious when receiving our compliments and spent the time to tell a little of his history in the restaurant business.... More

Didn't book but got a table immediately... Low key prompt service... ordered 2 x dim sum and 2 x main. Fresh ingredients and obviously freshly prepared. Everything tasted totally delicious. Wine and water glasses always kept topped up... not a cheap meal but one of the nicest oriental meals we've had in a long time.

Visited this restaurant for the first time on a wet Wednesday night just before we went to the royal concert hall. There isn't a huge choice but what they have is very tasty. I had the Korean barbeque chicken with fried rice , cooked perfectly and the rice was the best I have tasted in a while. All served quickly... More

Food was really good. Best dish was coconut soup, butternut squash dumplings, and red snapper. Ribs were well prepared but hoisin sauce pretty sweet.

I had dinner here whilst away on business, so it was a 'table for one' moment but if I'm in Glasgow with the wife I'd certainly bring her here! A good menu and the food was excellent. Service was brilliant and the pricing was fair given then sizes of the meals and it's high quality.

Thank Family_Laver-Smith
