    Food is good. A bit crowdy with people talking. Not much space between.

    Cooking Corner exceeded our expectations. We ordered the “feed me” option. While not quite as good at Chin Chin’s - Cooking corner would come close, but at 2/3 the price. The Bao and sweet and sour port and green tea ice cream burgers were superb. The service graceful and the mood / vibrancy has a balance of busy without being too noisy to here across the table. Highly recommended.

    The quality of food we got was actually really good but we kept trying to order their ‘star’ dishes and none were available including ones showcased on their website. No scallops, no porterhouse, no betel leaf lamb. Really annoying.

    Food was good but the service was quite the opposite. We got the feed me menu which did not permit dietary substitutions which would quite frustrating. Had to ask for side plates. About half way through our feed me menu I’m pretty sure they just forgot about us. We sat there for about 30 min with empty dishes sitting on our table. We had to grab a server and asked if we were done our feed me menu and then a heap of other dishes came out. Even when she brought out new dishes, the old ones weren’t collected unless as asked for them to be taken. Ordered a bottle of wine and when it was brought out, it was placed on our table without it being opened or poured into the glasses. Great potential to be an amazing restaurant if they improve on the service.

    We did the feed me option which we could use the 50% off for, which was great. The food that was served to us was very tasty, I can't fault any of it. We were served: - daikon croquettes; - vegetarian spring rolls; - steam edamame; - fried chicken bao; - szechuan spicy dumplings; - xiao long bao; - fragrant shallot oil dry noodle; - sweet and sour pork; - braised beef wrapped in spring onion pancake (not on menu); - I believe we were also served another type of spring roll which is not listed on the menu but I forgot what it was now. Overall, there was a generous amount of food, and in addition to the above, we were also meant to get dessert. Unfortunately, the service was lacking - plates that were clearly empty after we were done eating were not cleared, each dish took ages to come out, and water was not being topped up at all and we had to constantly ask or even get it ourselves. We were observing the kitchen and the restaurant - it wasn't that busy. and they were prioritising the takeaway orders. We spent a total of 2 hours for all the above dishes to come out. The service was so slow, we got a bit over it towards the end, and told the waitress to forget the dessert and to just get the bill. Don't get me wrong, the food was very good, but I felt the restaurant was understaffed, perhaps because it was a Monday night?

    Food is nice, service is ok. However, when I ordered at least 2/5 of the menu is not available. Food that I want to try, the Capi beef, the scallop, the soup, lamb, lamb bun, fish bun.. I nearly want to ask what is serving. So very disappointed with the choice of food. The wonston is nice though.

    Great food. Great service. The only thing is the smoke from the kitchen was quite strong and stick to our clothes.

    Delicious high quality flavourful food very good dinning experience. Braised pork bao was the best ive ever had. Highly recommend. Braised pork rice was very delicious. Beef noodle soup was a large portion and they are very generous with the amount of beef they give you. Chili wontons were a highlight very tasty and juicy. Will return to try other items on the menu.

    A great little restaurant with very yummy food! The staff were very kind and the food came very quickly and was delicious and filling. I highly recommend the custard bao and the Malaysian vegetable curry and rice!

    Exhaust fan ineffective in removing frying and smoke smells. The venue is new and clean with modern decor. Food is tasty though am not entirely sure whether this is Chinese or Japanese cuisine. Seems like a mix between the two.

    Overall food is nice, tastes authentic, and quite fairly priced (a bit expensive mayb. Service is fast and efficient, though we were not granted any smile. Atmosphere is nice enough, though the restaurant is located in between 2 car parks.

    Great Taiwanese food. No beef noodle tonight, but other dishes such as bao made up for it. The service was quick and friendly. They came up to check on n is frequently. Recommend this place for sure!!
