Excellent, as always. Shanghai soup dumplings amongst the best in town. Envied mud crab on neighbouring table. Next time perhaps. Service very good - friendly and efficient.

As always, lovely food and friendly efficient service. My companion, a colleague from Sydney, said it was the best Chinese meal he had ever had. We really appreciate the different type of menu.
