Friendly staff. Convenience and free parking. Authentic Chinese cuisine though a bit over priced comparing to restaurants in the city. Centralize location accessible by personal or public transport.
Although the restaurant was busy with the LNY lunch crowds, service staff were friendly and efficient. They responded to our requests promptly and with a smiling attitude.
Had some unexpected menu surprises which should be mentioned when the restaurant called to confirm reservation. Ultimately, it was not an big issue but the experience would be better otherwise.
