So delicious. We had the crispy pork belly, asian greens and special fried rice. Was so fast and scrumptious. Perfect for a pre-QPAC dinner.

A great place for dining before a QPAC event. Fast service (we told them we had just over an hour) and the food was outstanding in both flavour and presentation and the house wine was very enjoyable and value for money.

Tai Tai got recommended to us and we are delighted with the experience. Staff are warm and welcoming and the space is open and refreshing. The Szechuan bang bang chicken and the wagyu dish was delicious with our fried rice. Will absolutely recommend to those who are visiting Southbank.

Fathers day dim sum was exceptional. Things were very slow at first but it picked up and the quality of the food made up for it.

Thanks for the feedback Fathovercat. The Father's Day dim sum service was a first for us and yes we did have some teething problems. I am glad we were able to pull it all together for you and provide you with such an enjoyable experience.

Chef has excellent cooking skill with good quality ingredients. Reception was excellent partly due to the quiet Sunday evening trade. A bit pricy but acceptable for the location and venue. However, if you are allergic or don't mind the MSG, and tons of it too, then it is a good place to go for a reasonable meal.
There is absolutely no reason to load up with MSG as it destroys the natural taste and flavour of the dishes.
Will we go back, perhaps not!
