Was recommended to eat here by our guest house host and I am very glad we did. It was easy to find and we were greeted by the staff who were friendly and took our orders straight away. The food was really good and I would happily visit this restaurant again.

Visited there with a foodie friend who spoke highly of it. Very simple/basic decor - nothing fancy. Simple menu tho majority of the dishes were hot & spicy. Dragonsbreath meatballs were very tasty in delicious sauce as was the pumpkin & egg yolk. Worth visiting for the food.
But ... the service was very hit and miss - we ordered rice to go with our food and finally having reminded our waiter at least 3 times, it turned up, right at the end of the meal. Which generally reflected the rest of the service - friendly ut a little inexperienced/amateur.
But would definately go there again for the food.

Big pleasure, big taste-for a tiny price at a tiny hole-in-the-wall. Could not get enough of the succulent & fresh Shanghai dumplings with spicy dipping sauce. Fried foods were light, airy and not oily. Delicious!

Nice dumplings and pot stickers. Fish entree is huge, perfect to split. We had fish with tofu in spicy sauce, lots of spice and left a really nice taste in your mouth. Vegies potstickers were a standout
