We have tried a lunch in this restaurant, and the food was all fried, greasy and absolutely not tasty. Such a shame. We really love chinese cuisine but this is not a chinese food, but just a badly cooked food unfortunately.

Hi. Had lunch here and came back again for dinner! Try the grilled shrimp. Great food with good variety. One of the few places that you wouldn't be sorry if you allow the staff to recommend the food. The sea food was excellent. It is...More
