The last time we dined at this eatery was two years ago using a 'daily deal' voucher for a set menu. We were quite impressed then at its standard of cuisine, and so ventured there again for a recent Saturday night dinner. It has a large seating capacity and there were quite a few diners, both couples and larger groups, already there at the early hour that we arrived. We were soon seated and perusing the fairly extensive and varied menu.
As is our usual custom, we decided to share two dishes. We were disappointed with both. We found the pork in satay sauce quite tasteless, with little satay flavour evident. The spicy beef with veges arrived swimming in a very large bowl of brown liquid, which, although tasty, was far too hot for our taste buds, judged by our experience elsewhere. Further, we were assured on ordering that it could be served spiced medium. My wife was unable to eat it after her first serve and so left it for me to finish. Perhaps needless to say, the presentation of this dish was very off-putting, and more suited to a soup than a mains dish.
Whilst reasonably efficient, the service, whether at reception or to table, and except for one particular waitron, was rather off-hand and unwelcoming. However, the decor is attractive, with tables and chairs set out spaciously. Although we enjoyed our previous visit, we will probably not go back again, especially with the large choice of Chinese-cuisine restaurant options available.

I am surprised to see that the last review was 2013. We recently started coming back here on Sunday for Yum Cha and last week was the first for 2015. we arrived about 11.30 and the place was already humming. We were seated at the top of the stairs on the mezzanine level which gives a really good view point of the whole restaurant. The tables filled quickly as the serving persons moved quickly through the dining areas with various offerings in steam baskets and plates. The service is very good and the staff are efficient at making sure a variety of food passes the table. We had the steamed pork buns, turnip cakes,pork rice rolls, chive dumplings, peanut and pork dumplings all washed down with Chinese tea. It is great way to begin the last day of the weekend
