My fiancé and I chose this restaurant to celebrate the latter part of our intimate wedding for several reasons: the atmosphere of the interior, the reviews of the food and being able to make a large party reso without booking out an entire room (that was still an option too, but it was out of our budget, unfortunately.) The entire service was absolutely superb. Our waitress, Andrea was a superstar! She was thoroughly attentive of myself and my guests. She handled and served the table with such grace and charming charisma. We started the night with champagne followed by the pre-fix menu which was shared plates between the guests. It was great having a variety of small bites to appreciate the range of flavours that Sai Woo had to offer! Every dish was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. My only downfall was not having a big enough stomach to finish everything. The drinks, especially the Elderflower one was wonderful! Overall, my guests, fiance and I enjoyed our experience, the service, the food and the staff for taking such good care of us! I highly recommend booking with Sai Woo for a romantic date night or an important celebratory dinner! Also, one last note: corresponding with Kat, the General Manager, made me feel like I was in great hands. Her email replies were prompt and she ensured that all my requests in terms of any dietary restrictions, additional favours or decor was met! Sai Woo did a fantastic job on all fronts - I truly, truly appreciate the accommodating and caring service! :) THANK YOU!

Not much about the menu is very chinese except the fried rice. Flavours were also not very Asian. Everything was good but probably not worth a second visit.

We came back because it was so great the first time. And although the Dining Out menu meant we couldn't have a second try at favs like the fried rice, it was still a great dinner. laksa, cod and baklava are amazing. Beet salad and lemongrass chicken were also gray, as was the chocolate pate. We will definitely be back. When we can have the fried rice....

Sia Woo was the place for our annual staff get together. The food was outstanding, and the staff went out of their way to make our night a special one. The restaurant is really beautiful. We had the downstairs private room with a full bar. Tasty drinks too.
