    Would we go back? No. The service was not good apart from the service we got from the male staff member who might have been the manager? Two lady staff members were not welcoming and friendly we also had to wait for a while to order drinks and food. We did the $69 5 course food package and we felt ripped off. We were still extremely hungry after and had to order two other meals. Some of the meals like the salad could have been brought from the supermarket and most of the meals lacked flavour and seasoning. we had heard similar feedback/reviews but we wanted to try it out for ourselves. The best thing about the night were the cocktails. We tried 5 between the two of us and we didn’t have a bad one.

    The vegetarian banquet option was far less substantial than the meat option - eg a simple leafy salad instead of a Bao bun. We were charged extra because they gave us cocktails that weren’t included in the package without confirming we wanted them (at an additional charge) so there was a miscommunication. Overall for a $700+ bill we would have expected a better service and better vegetarian banquet options.

    Food was not outstanding. Cantonese steamed fish was too salty due to the amount of soy sauce - I suspect the fish was steamed and then soy added later prior to playing or at playing, which is not how Cantonese serve this dish. Beef rendang lacked flavour, probably as the beef was not slow cooked with the coconut. Hiramasa sashimi with yuzu was devoid of yuzu flavour. Oysters were good and tasted recently shucked.

    We were very disappointed in the duck very tough with not much meat thought it would be more like a Peking duck. Also disappointed that when we told the waitress and sent half of it back all she said is she will let the chef know.

    Food was quite nice as long as you like chilli. We weren’t made aware of just how spicy some of the dishes were when ordering the banquet - a bit of a disclaimer would have been helpful as we wouldn’t have got the banquet had we known the chilli level. When we politely asked if the next few dishes could be a bit milder we were told “oh well you’re at an Asian restaurant, we use a lot of chilli”, and when we politely asked at the end whether they split bills we were told “no our system is really basic we can’t do that” in a tone. Definitely has potential but waiter/manager was arrogant and entitled, and junior waitress lacked confidence and knowledge of what the banquet even contained. Wouldn’t go back.

    This deal was amazing value, although I was a little disappointed with the food offering. It was tasty and on theme but the deal was a little misleading in the fact it reads as bottomless yum cha. In saying that I was well fed and probs wouldn’t above got more than 1 or two plates if I was to order extra. The $50 cocktails is awesome value we had 4+ each and they were delicious, all made to order. No skimping on ingredients here, between us we tried the menu.

    Summed up by the Wontons, $9 each but if you buy the base at the supermarket then it is $3 odd for 30. Cut them in half as per Rubi and the margin is CRAZY. Food ok but can get similar for better prices and less noise.Suggest Madam Wu,s.

    Food was generally good. We opted for the yum cha high tea, which I would advise against; if we go back, we’ll try the a la carte. Service was poor, especially given it wasn’t that busy. Well intentioned but not polished or coordinated.

    The best service I have ever had at a restaurant, the staff were so helpful and made so many great recommendations that were in our best interest, rather than just trying to get us to spend more. We felt really comfortable and excited by the experience and after such great service from the wait staff, the food was unlike anything we’ve had before. Such beautifully thought out flavours and so well cooked. It was worth every cent and we can not wait to come back again. Thank you for such an amazing dinner, it was truely the best part of our trip up to Gold Coast.

    Unfortunately the table service was a huge let down. We were table of 2 males and 2 females. The whole night we had one drink each. At no time were we asked if we would like any further drinks with the waitress wanting to take our coconut mojitos away when we were not finished however she cleared the 2 beer bottles We wanted a bottle of wine with our meals but there was no personable service. The food was definitely overpriced though the gals ours were lovely.

    Chose outside eating option for a sunset dinner, as soon as sun dropped, it was freezing… no heaters, no blankets etc. Ice cold. Food was expensive and I assumed it would have tasted fantastic if it wasn’t frozen within a second of being dropped at our table. Asked 3 different workers over the 2 and a half hours we were there if we could move inside ( inside being empty the whole time). Finally the last worker helped us inside half way through our main course and we got to defrost next to the heaters inside and finish off our frozen meals. Chill place for drinks with friends but wouldn’t go back to eat.

    The food was really a massive let down, after so many people encouraged us to go check it out we were so eager but alas sad to say completely let down. My wonton starter was soggy and the salmon wasn’t fresh tasting and the beef rendang had absolutely no flavour. An favourite of my wife’s and mine we very severely let down by this. The roti tasted store bought and was burnt. And the curry lacked even the most simple of seasonings. It’s sad because I see what they were trying to achieve it just really missed the mark. Not to mention when we got there we were left out in the cold for 5 mins with no one at the desk to greet us. Very impolite and unprofessional.

    The food was very good especially the gyoza, drunken chicken but the roti was a let down. The sauce was good but the bread was like supermarket roti. Good atmosphere but don't sit near door which was opening every few minutes on a cold night and had to close it or ask staff to. Good fast service and would return.
