Not a great experience.

After we were seated, we had glasses of water poured and then no drink service for about 10 mins; only because I had to get a waiter’s attention, otherwise it’d probably been longer.

We ordered calamari, which was a main, but it came out first. The dish itself was average, very batterie and the calamari was over cooked.

The dumplings were delicious; definitely the highlight.

The other main dish was the chill-caramel pork. The sauce was on point, but the pork was overcooked.

Overall, not a great experience because of the service and the lack of quality with two of the dishes we’d ordered. When you’re charging $30+ for mains, you expect they’re cooked to well.

It’s our usual Friday date night since it’s opening.

This time round they forgot to bring out one of the dish we ordered but nonetheless they were very apologetic.

Food is yummy and friendly.

I would have given 5/5 for everything if the below didn't happen:
- the deep fried ice cream was completely melted inside and it was just cream.
- Xialonbao was yummy but was expecting at least 6 considering its price (when compared to DTP or NSH)

The service was great, but unfortunately the food itself was pretty average. Fried rice very salty with lots of veggies and not actually much rice. Xiao long bao was very doughy and didn't have much flavour or soup. I hope they can improve on the food because the staff were lovely.

Also the fact that fried ice cream was finished was a big let down unfortunately. Given we dined during a special event, supplied should have been increased.
