It's a weekday lunchtime and the place is barely full but the service is slow and haphazard. They have extensive menus, most with pictures, lots of lunch and dinner sets on offer and they also have a buffet option too.
The main menu - among a pile of other menus
Dinner buffet option
Iced Horlick - my default drink when I'm in Hong Kong style cafes, so malty and delicious!
Shallot pancakes - these were good but quite oily, I felt a bit queasy after eating my share, and I can normally tolerate alot of fried and fatty foods.
Pan fried pork dumplings
These were yummy! Crispy bottoms and juicy on the inside
Crab meat xiao long baos
These were good as well - plenty of soup when biting into it.
A few other things caught my eye on the extensive menu as well, but didn't get a chance to order such as the pumpkin cakes and the dessert xiao long baos. I was a bit turned off from ordering more as the restaurant wasn't even full and the service was so bad.
They took ages to bring our food out, with lengthy times in between each dish. At one point we had to enquire about our last dish as it had been ages. No apologies or anything, It's a Chinese restaurant though so I wasn't expecting much in the service department but I would have expected them to be speedy.
