I heard rave reviews about this place but have to say I left disappointed. Service was extremely poor. We had to ask multiple times for things. Understandable to some degree of the restaurant had been busy but it wasn't. The highlight of the meal was the Barberry duck. It was delicious. Lowlight, apart from the service, was the prawn crackers.... More

Before I eat, I think the taste could be the same with another restaurant. Definitely not, it was so delicious, good cooked, well cooked, and nice presentation. You should try the duck skin and the green bean and also tofu hmmm... It's so yummy.

First went to this place in the late 90's when it was across the road. Menu has not changed - apart from the prices- and is still great value. One gripe is how packed the place gets, and consequently the noise level. Wooden floors do nothing to cushion the noise, and it really makes it impossible to talk without yelling.... More

I am lucky enough to eat out many times a week and so as a pragmatist I take the rough with the smooth however in some cases I take exception. To be served luke warm, disgusting phoney & inedible Cantonese style food by bored and disinterested staff, moving in slow motion really bugged me. Why go to a restaurant if... More

I recently tried KC for the first time and was slightly disappointed. The restaurant is always packed with people so I assumed the food was good. The food was average at best but the service was appalling! We waited for at least 30 mins before someone took notice of us. The food came way before our drinks arrived- in fact... More

Had dinner with family. Order a few dishes, and all taste so delicious, service was not bad. A little bit noisy though. But overall, great experience. Will come back.

Attending a conference the locals took us here for dinner. All our dishes were excellent - salt and pepper squid Mongolian lamb crispy skin duck and scallops in fried rice. Reasonable price quick service enjoyable night. More than ten of us and not one average dish.
