Service: Utterly polite and prompt staff; they paid attention to our special requirements too. No unnecessary delays and they even made a commendable effort to explain the contents of the dishes very patiently.

The staff recommendations were among the best dishes we ate including the dim sums and assortment of sushi! The chefs evidently pay special attention to the presentation of each dish considering that each plate looked picture perfect and scored high on the taste quotient.

Portion: Most of the appetizers have just 4 pieces that are decent sized. Main course and dessert had great quantity and is worth the cost. One staple and one chicken/crab/vegetarian main course is sufficient for 2 extremely hungry people.
