We were a group of 7-8 people, thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks here. Fish in black pepper sauce, Schezwan hot prawns are recommended. Great for business or family outings. Large tables for big groups are available. Service was quick and outstanding.

I had a team dinner here. I have been to many Chinese and pan Asian restaurants but sadly this place didn't quite meet my expectations.

Tucked away in a relatively quiet location on Rex Road, lovely ambience, decent Chinese meal with large servings and good service. Although the quality was good, it is perhaps over-hyped. Perhaps more suited to Corporate and Group get-togethers than family meals
