Food was delicious, and they were offering 20% off all food and drinks throughout October which was a bonus. The pig shaped roast pork buns were cute and tasty, but best dish was hands down the pan fried pork buns, will be back just to order 2 plates of these!

Short wait for food. They've put safety measures everywhere and felt safe. Char siu pork bun was amazing!

Great food. Relaxing dining experience considering the situation we’re currently in. We’ve been waiting for the lockdown to end so we could have their fried pork buns again. All of the staff wore masks, menus were printed on paper that you used to mark your order, cutlery was all wrapped individually and tables were wiped down after each customer. We felt very safe eating there. Would definitely go again.
