The ambience, service and food was fabulous. It was very encouraging to see that the majority of the guests were Chinese - always a good sign. We have become instant regulars.
Excellent Yum Cha in a nicely appointed restaurant. Service was relaxed but efficient. Highly recommended - Perfect for a team lunch or pre-theatre meal or dinner.
Staff were lovely and helpful and the food was great! The cocktails were also very tasty, and the venue itself is impressive. Will be returning.
