Welcomed with a smile and seated straight away. Attentive and efficient service from our waitperson with drinks and first menu options served promptly. Remaining banquet meals were served at even intervals and described accordingly. Food taste and presentation was of very good quality overall. Off street parking was available in the streets nearby only taking us a few minutes to... More

all of the food was good, but was it excellent and out of this world? No! There were a couple of highlights like the duck pancakes and the crab (the sauce was to die for). Beef was ok, fish was good, dumplings ok. Dessert the sago was great the other 2 things were only very average. Service was great ->... More

I was taken here by business colleagues and practically died after finishing because every single bite was a taste explosion for me! We feasted on a whole range of dishes including the Hiramasa Kingfish, Steamed Dumplings, Salt & Pepper Prawns, Fried Rice, and Chinese Greens. Our waiter was a treat and the weather was beautiful. If you can get a... More

The food was exceptional - we just loved the pork belly and the tofu. However, the service didn't seem to match the five star food and atmosphere - forgotten dessert menus, no follow up drinks orders and some bumbling by the waiters. Nothing too serious, but just something to note. We would go back.

Love it, love it, love it. Food great, cocktails great and for my 3 times I've been there service always great. On a side note the hot numbing wings are super tasty and addictive! Get there

We walked by on a sunday night. Knowing that this place is always packed and you need reservations, we were pleasantly surprised when they told us that we could be seated. Only kitchen was closing in 15 minutes, so we had to decide what we wanted of the menu in 15 minutes. We choose the shared 6 course set menu,... More

Hadn't booked a table but was able to get a nice cosy table at the back of the restaurant looking out towards the water. We decided to have the banquet tasting menu and found it to be quite adequate and satisfying. The food was hot and delicious, the service was attentive but not overbearing.

We had the tasting menu - it was excellent, truly delicious and beautifully presented. As were the cocktails. The wine list is good, the ambience is pretty good though we didn't get the outside table we'd requested and I personally felt the table was too small and I was a bit 'hemmed in'. The service was really very average. Mistakes... More
