Our first meal with them since their move proved to be just as good as we had remembered the previous venue. Wonderful food well prepared and presented. Service a bit slow even though the restaurant was not particularly busy, but we all enjoyed an excellent...More

A restaurant not for someone who likes fusion Chinese. I didn't expect much when picked this restaurant as Here is not China. However, out of expected, foods are authentic Chinese. true the foods were bit salty and oily, not sure if that is something to...More

Simple menu. Dishes taste homemade. Portion sizes are reasonable. Plate of beef costs around R80. Rice about 25. Flavours are nice. Restaurant is clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy about the food or the place. Great for a simple, delicious Chinese meal at a good price.

We chose this restaurant as it was recommended by our tour guide in Cape Town. When we arrived, there were three other tables with foreign tourists. The waiters were busy cleaning up as the guests were about to leave. We waited for quite a while...More

Came here in a Friday night with couple of friends, we ordered quite a lot of food. As a local Cantonese I have to say the quality of food is higher than my expectation. Both spring rolls and deep fried squid were good, BBQ pork...More
