Nice ambience and food but prices higher for common dishes like stir fried or cooked vegetables. Easier to get parking spots now as previously blocked parking spaces has been reopened along the road. Preferably check if you need booking as the place can be full at times especially weekends.

I was with a closed friend and the his family. The place was crowded. However service was still speedy. The taste of food was excellent. The service quality level was satisfactory. Parking availability was OK since parking lots were also available on the parallel street.

We had dinner here upon the recommendation of our guide. We were not disappointed with the food. We had a suckling pig which was well done. Very crispy skin (which is what we were after).

The restaurant is popular with families and locals. The food is well cooked and unpretentious and reasonably priced. There is a good selection of items ranging from meat items to fish and seafood items. Service is fast and this is not a place to linger. Best to call ahead for a table if it is a weekend.

Very busy family style restaurant. Well organised with prompt watchful service. Food is mainly to authentic Chinese taste but of excellent quality. We enjoyed all of our dishes on our three visits. Restaurant is comfortable and air conditioned.
