Great wee place. Love being able to walk on in and have a night of cooking! Something for everyone and as much tea as you can drink 😋

As a HongKonger, I have to say, its very close to the standard of authentic fried beef noodle(乾炒牛河), its not on their menu, but they are happy to make that for me! Highly recommended!

It has been a long time favourite of ours, can't beat the quality and affordability. It's not just a "good for the price" place. It's good! And it's cheap!

Great prices and good serve sizes, extra point for that. Some of the flavours are good, closer to authentic than you get in many, but that also leads to some unusual flavours. Too much MSG in some dishes. Nasi Goring was my favourite.

I order wonton soup every time I go somewhere that sells it. My favourite has now been demoted - in 20 years of wonton soup this is the best I've had. Fresh and flavourful, every component was on point. Lightly garlicky broth, and wontons small enough for one bite but packing major flavour. And a massive portion. Amazing enough also... More
