The food itself is OK, nothing extraordinary and nothing to write home about but I have been up since for a couple of beers just to enjoy the sunshine and stunning view across the Eastern Harbour. If you want a nice place to sit outside...More

Strange sort-of-Chinese place on the roof of the Cecil. Friendly if slow service (you need to ask if you want soy sauce, for instance). The guys there are very nice. View: Amazing of course. Cleanliness: Disgusting & Dirty. Grease-smudged plates, filthy Astro-turf outdoor carpets. Wires...More

The view is amazing from this rooftop restaurant; try to go in the afternoon so you can enjoy the sunset view. The food is good and service is quick and friendly. I liked the sweet and sour chicken with steamed white rice. Prices are reasonable.

The views here are the standout. The food is not great Chinese - pretty traditional Western-style Chinese and not much of interest on the menu. Passable if you need a Chinese fix, but little more. Service was painfully slow. The wait staff appeared to be...More

I am sorry to say that this restaurant is really weak and disappointing. I expected something else because the place on the rooftop of Steigenberger Hotel is fine. I am talking about taste, quality and style of cooking. I normally do not comment here but...More
