The food served is definitely not authentic Chinese food. I ordered Szechuan beef and it contained tonnes of shredded carrots. In China carrots are fed to the rabbits and not used in cooking. Food and drinks was cheap so it depends on whether you like...More

tucked amid the wharf construction, this restaurant is not fancy and does not have a water view but our group of eight was very happy with our experience. Staff was friendly, our waiter greeted us with a huge smile and provided fast and competent service....More
