Doubled the price with half the portions. Previous menu was perfect. This was my preferred restaurant for many years. The recent change in menu and prices made me reconsider - will not visit and recommend it.

A great restaurant for fine dining, for group and business. They serve variety of quality and authentic Chinese cuisines. Price is reasonable and worth for what you should get. In another word, you will not regret for what you have paid. Service is superb! The waiter is very friendly and always at your service. Environment is clean, cosy and warmth.... More

They have the best chinese food and recently they've added sushi to their menu and few indian plates (still didn't try them). I tend to stick to my favorite dishes that you must try!! The Beef Sishwan dish and the Shrimp/Crab thermidor!! No one does it like them! Also Cajun chicken is great if you like your dish sweet.
