Efficient service overall with plenty of waiting staff. Clean and spacious interior unlike most Chinese restaurants with outdated decor and dirty food stained carpet. Easy parking. Some really good yum cha, esp the rice pastry but some dishes lack flavour and freshness. Soy sauce helps. Nice hot tea. Dinner is better, esp the steam fish and the always friendly waiter who remembers what we like.

Apart from a early altercation in the restaurant with intoxicated patrons, the night was fantastic Food was excellent and service was brilliant - Staff were welcoming and we enjoyed their humour and relaxed atmosphere. If not for the altercation I would have rated our experience as a 6. We will definitely be back soon

Went for Yum Cha. Majority of the dishes tasted good however a few of the favourite dishes were a little on the bland side. Great service. Can shy away new customers as the place was quite empty for weekend Yum Cha c

The Taiwanese three cup chicken is always a winner! A nice atmosphere with good service and a large dining space so you are not too close to other customers.
