How often do you change your menu? As soon as the customers approve the new dishes, as we always give the new items for the customers to try with our compliments.

The only way is the direct way - no complications.

Keep it simple, clean and tidy.



What has been your most memorable (or unusual) meal?


A 10 course banquet meal in a temple on an island off Hong Kong!

Too many to name!

We pride ourselves on what we do and we have been trading now for 25 years.



What would you recommend about the local area?
