Often we go for dim sum to Oriental City. But this time we chose to go to dinner. We had great dishes like the steamed oysters and other seafood dishes. The service was very nice and attentive.

Close to perfection in food taste except for hot and sour soup is slightly off from authentic. The service staff is absolutely brilliant and well knowledge of food. He recommended portion of food to perfection. Well done and surely will recommend to others.
