Poor service waited over an hour between courses even after we asked 3 times then the food arrives cold. Restarunt was less then half full so no excuses. Not friendly and the food is bland and not authentic at all very poor quality food

We were nine ladies for a birthday lunch. We had a round table in a corner with a lovely view of boats and water. The table size was perfect. We could have a nine-way conversation without raising our voices and we are certain we did not disturb other nearby patrons. We ordered al la carte. The food was good but pricey. Staff were very helpful and patient.

Had the crispy skin chicken and that was hard to eat as most of it was spine and had a lot of small bones in it so had to eat it with my hands and wasn’t enjoyable to eat it tasted good just wasn’t enjoyable to eat

Good Service. Prawns & Scallops were very nice. The salt and pepper calamari was very salty, not particularly nice.

For Father’s Day they were terribly understaffed. The food was good as usual but we had two dishes that were forgotten and had to continually wave staff down for service. Also- a staff member was laying down on a bench seat (in a booth in the restaurant) in view of customers - bizarre!

It was our first time at this restaurant, so I ignore if this is the norm. We booked a table, selecting "birthday" as the occasion. Once there, we ordered pipies, scallops, a wine and a lobster. I don't understand why they asked about the occasion (in this case, a birthday) as once there there was no action or mention to it. We needed to remind them twice to bring the wine after the order and the lobster never appeared. We left unsatisfied as a result of a half-delivered order.

The restaurant was excellent. We had the 8 person banquet and the food was outstanding as was the service. One of our party arrived late but it was no trouble for the server to organise the entrees he had missed.
Overall the service was very good as was the range and quality of food presented. As it turned out we couldn't eat all the food provide.
If you like Chinese food, go to this restaurant - you wont do better.

Wow! What a lovely surprise. The food was delicious! We appreciated being able to take our leftovers home too. It was nice that this was expected - no hush hush or feeling uncomfortable asking for a container. We will be back - sooner rather than later!

We we very disappointed the $52 Peking Duck menu choice that we made. 10 x small thin pancakes, 10 minuscule pieces of duck breast (which were very thin and were half and half meat and skin), the sauce, and some thin vegetable sticks. Will not be returning to this restaurant again and certainly won't be recommending to any of our friends and acquaintances. So disappointing as it was a special family celebration for my daughter's birthday.

We enjoyed our meal and the restaurant but meals were nothing special and the soft shell crab had dried up. They had forgotten to bring it out as a private function was taking preference. Staff friendly and good

We had a reservation for 8:30pm. On arrival, our table wasn’t ready as they were already starting to clear-up for the night even though there were still plenty of customers dining.
We were asked 3 times if we were ready to order within the space of 5-7 minutes.
The food came out quickly and was of good quality. The staff however were inattentive when we wanting to order more drinks and thereafter the bill as again they were too busy clearing up.
We had arrived, dined, and left in 35 minutes.
Overall: good food, poor staff attentiveness and customer service.

Booked a table and confirmed previous day yet when we arrived it seemed like they gave our table to someone else and put us on a huge table for 8 people. They also forgot to bring out 2 of our dishes which we had to ask for. It was my daughter's birthday she was looking forward to the duck but it was sold out. Were told we should of prebooked this. Rest of the food was delicious thou and good value for money.
