I have eaten here 3 out of 4 evenings i stayed in the hotel. Their signature dish with steamed mixed seafood is the recommended dish. Service is friendly, it only lack a bit of checking the tables, sometimes it takes too long before they come and check if everything is ok, e.g. if you want to order another drink, you... More

There is nothing special at all in this restaurant (not even the food). The service is extremely SLOW. We had 1 single appetizer after around 25 minutes and the main courses arrived after 1 hour of waiting!! This is extremely slow for a restaurant in which there was only 3 or 4 tables only being served (including our table)! The... More

I understand there is a new head chef at Tang Chao in the Holiday Inn. We had delicious Szechuan shrimp with snow peas and green pepper. The shrimp were large and fresh. The shrimp dish had some spice, but I expected it to be spicier, so I added a spicy sauce to it. The duck with plumb sauce was very... More

What used to be a great restaurant has now unfortunately degraded to mediocre food. They are using excessive corn starch and the dishes had similar taste. It's almost as though the staff are bored. They really need to improve their menu and variety of options. This restaurant needs new life.

The ambience of the restaurant is great , the staff friendly and food was light not heavy or loaded with cornflour like other chinese restaurants. Most of the dishes are stir fry which is kind of a bummer if you are more of a gravy person but all in all a great place to eat.

We have visited this restaurant several times. Every time we liked the food, the welcome and the service. However, this time the food was average.some ingredients have disappeared from some of the main dishes such as mixed sea food stew.

Everytime I visit this restaurant it is a must to taste something new because you can find a wide variety of menu here including few Thai selection such as Tom Youm Soup which is worth a try. Their choice of Dim Sum, more popularly known as MOMOS are healthy starters as this is a steamed delicacy stuffed with shrimps, chicken,... More
