I've been here numerous times and they serve a wide range of food selection, with a recommended section of their Hainanese specials. Their Steam Chicken is juicy and yummy with the right dose of sauce laden when served. The Hainanese Pork Chop is crispy (you...More

Great food. I was a little cautious of the school canteen type atmosphere. Good chicken and rice, good beef. No concerns at all. English can be a bit hit or miss with the staff and the diners we spoke to were all local.

Wasn't sure this was even chinese food. It was bland, not that it needed to be spicy. Prawns in cereal, -tastless. Crab with salted egg, overcooked. Need I say more.
