It was great we had a great time there yup
Lunch sets are always reasonably priced here, love the food. Especially the cantonese crispy pork chop rice set! Always bring friends over here, drinks are great too
Am a regular here the food is amazing, service is great, really great atmosphere, no complaints at all, go for the rooftop, always really nice at night
Both service and food was great. The ambience at the rooftop bar was fantastic. The menu was creative. A really very good concept as well.
Interesting concept with attentive service - they serve you a bowl of Chicken soup as beverage. Some dishes worked better than others: the maple honey glazed char siew was divine, so was the crispy sticky kung pao mushroom and Signature XO sauce carrot cake. The siew yoke had crackling skin but the salted egg dip was bland and watery, The curry sauce for the HK fish balls was watery with little curry flavour, and the fish ball texture was more like the local ones rather than the HK style, which is less bouncy. The fried toufu with Szechuan Ma Po dipping sauce was a creative concept, but the sauce was lacklustre, not enough "ma la" and Umami. We end up dipping the crispy tofu in the kung pao sauce from the mushroom...overall a good experience, nice place to hang out for drinks and tapas.
Limited seating and not even the rain can stop the place buzzing on a Thursday night, probably due to the good food, or the happy hour pricing. Honey char siew was great, so was the XO carrot cake. Potato strips (fries) is worth a try too. Service was prompt but not always accurate; needs reminding at from time to time.
Asked for roof top seating but was assigned to a secluded rooftop area at the back with blocked view and I was bitten by mosquitos. Ordered xo carrot cakes, luncheon meat chips and roast pork but waited the roast pork for an hour and it’s at room temperature, not even warm not to say hot. And since they took so long to serve the roast pork, wonder is it because they have to take away from somewhere else?
Food (lunch menu @ the tapas bar on the 1st floor) was excellent, the serving of food & overall service was prompt and servers were attentive, ensuring the soup bowls were constantly filled. Would definitely visit them again!
Service can be improved but as we were a large group, it is in line with our expectations. The creativeness and quality of food and beverage is rather good. The ambience and decor is quite intricate and unique, making this a good value dining experience.
The Chinese tapas dishes were surprisingly very tasty, balanced (not too oily or over salted), and in good portions. The drinks on offer downstairs not as great as those I remembered having up on rooftop. Different cocktail menu I’ve been told.
