Ordered two types of the flaming wok - garlic & butter prawns and black pepper beef. Both were disappointing. Sauces tasted ready-made (store-bought). Prawns were not fresh. Service was OK. Not going back.

Delicious food, very filling but make sure you order the right level of spicy, as it tends to be rather hot due to the chilly peppers. I liked the atmosphere and crowd, service was fast, will definitely go again.

So, this one Thursday night my sisters and she hijacked me to this restaurant with much gusto, and I had no choice but to go with the flow, because all 3 of them had decided that... More

The food is on the pricey side and portion is not that huge. However, it tastes great. The pecking duck is simply delicious. Would come back for that dish!

Subodh and Rodea were very friendly and professional. Had the Mongolian grill; beef was really yummy and good portion. Highly recommend this dish. Will be back!
