We were recommended to come here and we will try it again but for Western people beware of following: There is no one who can speak English to help you with menu choice. They also have issues with written Chinese to English translation on the menu. As an example we ordered Beef tenderloin but it is not tenderloin at all, its Beef tendons- an entirely different thing( not good). Also beware of the pictures. They include lovely looking vegetables ( which we really wanted) but there is none of that included. When I tried to explain about the tenderloin issue, they just can't understand, so I hope they can have an English speaking friend explain.

The worst restaurant ever, the dish has no taste at all. The fish is not fresh and the head looks horrible! The staff refuse to do anything, instead she asked my what sause should they put in. Ridiculous! The menu price is $38 and when we decide to order, the waiter told me it is $40, they forgot the change the price. I was like WHAT?? OKAY!! But at least something eatable! Please DO NOT come to this rubbish place.

Cheap and delicious! Lots of options on their menu, menu is in both chinese and english. Shredded pork dish with their homemade pancake wrap is very good (though wouldve liked to see more spring onion under the pork), its like peking duck but with pork. Pumpkin pancakes are soft, chewy, laced with coconut and not too sweet. Egg yolk fried shrimp was good but a little bland, it wasnt addicting like some others that ive tried. Friendly service, highly recommend to come in group so everyone can share and try a bunch of their dishes
