Great food, efficient service and fabulous riverside location. Dim Sum was fresh and delicious especially Xiao Long Bao. Staff were friendly. Our visitors from Singapore truly enjoyed the experience.
Very good experience with fantastic food and services, recommend people come along with family and friends, it is a very nice place for gathering. Well done!
Very good atmosphere with good view, the service was superb and the manager was very welcoming. The food was well presented and tasty. The price was a bit high but was worth every cent of it.
Fantastic food, service and location. Will be visiting again, and trying some of the other delicious things I missed out on, on the menu. Great evening.
Normally the dimsum is excellent but for some reason that particular day some of the dishes were a bit cold. So on this occasion I have given a lower rating. The main gripe I have about this restaurant is the waiters/waitress seem to have a hearing problem and this is not the first time that it has happened. I am literally shouting at them and they just walk past as if you are invisible. Mind you the restaurant was busy but pretending not to hear your customers calling for you is very rude. Also, when serving dishes that requires a spoon to scoop the food like the king prawn flour roll, it would be nice if the waiter/waitress serving the dish provided the spoon. Having to ask for a spoon at a white table cloth restaurant indicates the waitstaff perhaps need a bit more training? The only consolation was Jason, the manager on duty that day, who articulated well and was attentive to me and my parents.
The quality of the food is "up there" with the best I have eaten in Hong Kong and Singapore. You have to try the Shanghai dumpling with the soup inside. Service is very efficient including wine and food. I wish dim sum restaurants had a system (like a flag on the table) so waiters know you don't want to order another dish for a while. Nice view over the water and close proximity to bars for a drink after lunch!! Clean toilets and the kitchen looks spotless. Prices reasonable for the quality.
Thank you for a lovely meal enjoyed on Tuesday, 17th april. We were a table of 11 people and everyone enjoyed the food and pleasant service and of course the beautiful ambience. Of the 11 people, I was the only one who has been there a few times and from all accounts I think my friends and famlly members will certainly visit you again for yum cha. I would also like to thank our for being very obliging and thank you once again for the prompt and pleasnt service.
Food was great but the service overall poor. It was like "get and forget". Ordered wine was served the first glass the rest we served ourselves. We were there for Dim Sum and ordered one dish and was told it would be ordered for us. We asked about the dish 3 times to no avail and we we decided to forget it the wife tried one more time and asked one of the staff and presto we got our dish. Lots of staff all with ear pieces but appeared disinterested in working. Next time we are going to try there for dinner and see what happens. But overall the food was good despite the service.
DISAPPOINTING AND EMBARRASING Spent over $200 for 3 people as expected...but did'nt expect: a) disorganised service and short cuts with the food preparation, b) 1 of 3 bowl of soup was brought 15 minutes ahead of the other 2 and the lid was taken off the bowl, by the time other soup arrives it was not hot and was 'warmed' up instead of refreshed, c) the quail eggs from pork belly dish was hard and tasteless, a guest commented it was from a tin, d) another guest commented the Abalone soup was too thin to be double boiled as claimed, the other said, msg added in the soup, e) had to re-order drink because the maitre d forgot to write the order claimed the waitress. Nice venue, have the potential for much better performance. Overall very average food at higher end pricing...much better at CANTON BAY in Mounts Bay Road Perth!
Excellent service , brilliant food, generous serves. The quality of food is the best you’ll find in this category. We were fortunate enough to have a table outside overlooking the water, which was lovely. We could not fault a single thing. Excellent value for what you receive . We think we’ve found our new family favourite !
