I recently attended with sons aged 2 and 9. The high chairs don't have straps so I had to wedge the chair as close to the table as possible to keep my 2 year old seated. Ordered the following: Prawn toast - ok, but a little oily Duck & pancakes - nice, few restaurants can get this wrong Beef rice... More

We travelled here for evening dinner from Kingston having heard about it from a friend. Lovely "space" and setting, but down hill all the way after that. The menu, white kitchen plates etc were more suited to a cheap cafe than a prime waterfront restaurant. Food was poor - duck was "off" for us despite being served to other diners.... More

I've been here a few times and to be honest it is hit and miss. There are times when the food is delicious succulent and full of flavour but then there are other days when the food is bland or just drenched in soy to give it some sort of flavour. I had a large gathering in their private room... More

It always a pleasure to pop here for a Dim Sum lunch. Friendly team, consistent menu and a pleasant view of the river make it a regular option.

this is a normal Chinese restaurant, the chinese dont seem to like customers so the service is as like most chinese restaurants, unfriendly and aggressive. we eat lunchtime Dim Sum, which was tasty.. id go back as it met my expectations.. Thai restaurants provide much better service..

Wayne who took the take away order was efficient and courteous, however when we rang after waiting an hour - we had been advised it could take that long - i was surprised to find that the restaurants delivery girl had other deliveries in the area . The food not only was cold it was tasteless, gooey and generally unappealing.... More

Very slow without any hint of an apology. Food is ok but more expensive than it should be. Disappointing. Used to be much better
