Food was bad. Service was awful! There are plenty of nice Chinese restaurants around that area - will definitely not returning again. You get much better value for your money elsewhere.

We went in a group of 10 people, including two small children. The staff could not have been more helpful, both with the menu and with advising options for the children.

We enjoyed excellent stir fried dishes here, along with delicately spiced fried rice that appealed to us because of its unusual lightness. We ordered pork and chicken, both with seasonal vegetables, to satisfy a hankering for what we think of as "classic" Chinese fare, amid...More

Saw the reviews and the high 4 rating, so I gave it a try. Big space, huge. Friendly staff. Not as much of the veggie side as I hoped but a reasonable amount of options. I opted for the 'Adjun' (sorry not sure) Vegetable Chow...More

If you like good Chinese food, this is not the restaurant to go to. The food here is just ok. Not very tasty. We ordered 3 dishes. Orange beef that didn't have any tang, Singapore noodles which was very bland, and a shrimp dish which...More
