The first thing you notice is the buzz and the crowd on Saturday night. We found our way to the counter and, yes, they had our (Open Table) reservation, and yes, our table was all set and ready to go. A friendly young women took charge of us and the evening went smoothly and scrumptiously. We shared starters of prawn dim sim and those lovely crispy, crunchy fried chicken buns. For mains we shared Singapore noodles, spicy beef strips, and Chinese veggies between three. It was hard to fit in dessert but we did - chocolate hazelnut and strawberry spring rolls with a very good mango ice-cream. The menu is Cantonese cooking with a twist of fun. With drinks, coffee and a tip, we had a very enjoyable Saturday night on charming Challis Avenue for just under $50 per person. Very enjoyable!

Wow Thank you so much, My friend's and I enjoyed the banquet, there was soo much food we could barley fit in dessert. The food was of a high quality and every dish was delicious and the banquet worked well together.

Service was outstanding and attentive - I droped my chop sticks, and before I barley had them off the ground, the lovely young lady was already standing next too me with a new pair - impressive!

With classics and some more adventurous dishes, it's perfect for a fun group dinner with some shared plates, great dumplings and an excellent and varied wine list. Must do in Potts Point!

Food was bland, calamri flavourless and oily, sang choi bao very wet and bland, steak tender but bland, seasonal vegies simple but OK. Very expensive. Were told beer was happy hour price but got charged full price. I was drinking beer from bottle and acquaintance from glass. Waitress poured beer from my bottle from which I had been drinking into acquaintance's glass on top of the beer she still had in her glass. My friend stopped the waitress and expressed her displeasure in what was done. I lost most of my beer and my friend did not want to drink the beer now in her glass so we both lost our drinks to waste and the waitress did not replace either of our drinks and charged us for them. The meal was only average and was very expensive. Many other better options at a more reasonable price. Alcohol is way overpriced at this venue - definitely a place to drink water. Oe waiter very helpful and pleasant but we didn't understand his name - maybe Robert or Robin

You must try the Eggplant and Crab meat, the Kung Pao chicken, and the steamed fish. Food is always fresh and I recommend this place to everyone I know. The (very) small bar is nice and relaxed as well.

At first we were seated outside because being a Friday night it was very busy. I thought it would be too cold but the heaters kept us very warm. Every dish was beautifully cooked and so tasty. The place has a great vibe. The egg white crab omelette was a real surprise. Comforting and tasty. We were also really blown away by the chicken steam buns. They were a great combination of textures and flavour. crunchy fried chicken, and super soft steamed bun and a sauce that really popped. Overall a really satisfying experience.

A return visit, this time with family, a mix of young and old. All of whom enjoyed the food, and the service. The staff coped well with the busy period, were friendly and polished. A short but choice wine/drinks list with a good mix, as well as a variety of other drinks.
This is a venue that early or late diners will enjoy. Patience may be needed for the 8.15 bookings as not all 6.00 pm diners have regard for the 8.15 diners waiting for their table, which can be a little frustrating. If you book 6.15 don't sit chatting past 8.15, be considerate and continue your conversation elsewhere, and don't get annoyed with the staff if they politely ask you to move on. We will return soon.
