What a little gem of a restaurant just outside of the main area. It's a BYOB with no corkage fees which helps keep the price down. There were 7 of us and we all had different dishes and we loved what we had. The place is only small, 5 or 6 tables, so best book to be sure. The owner... More

We have been dining in this hidden gem of a restaurant for almost two years. The food is outstanding and all produced by Betty and David (husband and wife team). A varied menu and some interesting choices, quite different from any other Chinese restaurants. The food is all home cooked and doesn't resemble the gloop, or contain the MSG's to... More

At first glance the menu looks bland but look closer and you will see some authentic, unusual, delicious dishes. I wish I lived nearer. Lovely... More

This little restaurant is really lovely. Well run by a husband and wife team the service is very good and the food is quite excellent. Remember to take your own alcohol though, as they do not have a licence. Not expensive and great value.

Description
Please note that bookings are highly recommended as seating is very limited. Come for clean, healthy, authentic Cantonese food; from lobster to stuffed peppers and aubergines to freshly steamed fish. Make sure to book for a large party! David, a highly sought-out chef, teaming with his wife Betty, created this "hidden gem" in August 2012. Working together, they restored and captured the exhilarating tastes straight from Hong Kong and produce authentic Chinese and Cantonese cuisine for everyone to enjoy. Using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients sourced locally, our menu is always changing depending on season and availability. Some dishes on our Specialities Menu require prior notice of 48 hours. Our talented chefs will be happy to cater to any special dietary requests, and will cook each dish specifically for you. Try something new than the stereotypical Chinese takeaway food altered to suit the foreign taste buds.
