Wasn't sure this was even chinese food. It was bland, not that it needed to be spicy. Prawns in cereal, -tastless. Crab with salted egg, overcooked. Need I say more.

Very disappointing! After the rave reviews we had the chicken rice and the pork chops. Bland parboiled chicken, plain lukewarm rice and dry overcooked tasteless pork (which had been hanging around somewhere)

The place is obviously extremely popular as we were only just about able to get a table! We ordered Hainanese (sorry about spelling!) pork for 6$ and cashew chicken for 14$. The portion sizes are very big and the food is tasty... but not amazing.

Great offerings of a Chinese restaurant. The chicken rice is one of my personal favourite, great fragrant rice with an unbeatable chicken rice chilli.
