takeaway: takeaway & delivery available

stand-out dish: pork skewers and pan fried dumplings

hot tip: the BBQ is spicier than you think

Chinese BBQ and dim sum are the biggest draws to this spot, but the menu also features the compulsory hotpot and fried dishes. Skewers tend to be on the smaller side, but are well-seasoned, well-cooked, and brought to the table still sizzling from the grill. The dim sum list is not long, but everything we tried was more than satisfactory. You may feel like you've ordered heavy on the first round, but you'll definitely be ordering seconds.

verdict: Good flavors and decent prices, this is a good spot for all.
