    The food was terrific as always. The beers were a little on the warm side but helped quench each of the dishes spicey side. My biggest bugbear is when wait staff only acknowledge one person at the table, from the welcome right through to the ordering and follow up. Sadly both staff continued to do this across the night. Other than that, it was another terrific experience at dainty dowager.

    Although the menu was short in comparison to many asian restaurants the range was sufficient and the dishes were well presented and delicious. One of our company was vegetarian and was very happy with the selection. Like the menu the wine list was short but well chosen. The service was excellent. Will definitely return.

    What has happened to Dainty ? The food menu was limited. The quality not what it used to be. The Char sui pork was more gristle and fat. The kitchen closed within 45 minutes of our arrival and whilst the staff were friendly they were standing around waiting for us to leave and well before 9pm

    Everything we asked for was an inconvenience - the birthday girl's cocktail was just left on the bar and not brought over (the place wasn't busy so no excuse). The inability to split bills; pay with cash; use an Entertainment Card despite no signage to the contrary, no gin cocktails - just vodka all made a disappointing experience. Wont be going back in a hurry.

    Great food, great cocktails and good service. The man that greeted us and saw us again when we paid was very nice.

    The roast pork,silky tofu,chinese greens and dumplings were all delicious.I deducted a point due to the poor ventilation.On a hot day and being the first customers, we still felt the outside heat despite the ceiling fans. We will come again on a cooler day to try the other dishes and desserts.

    Such incredibly tasty food. The daily dumplings are always amazing. Anything on the menu we have tried (we have been a few times now) is absolutely delicious with fresh and complex flavouring. My favourite is the massaman curry. Friendly servers and quick food service too.

    Excellent food, good service and decor that is an interesting combination of traditional Chinese done in a modern way. We highly recommend the Dainty Dowager.

    Service, although very friendly, was quite slow and drinks had to be asked for.

    We took our friends visiting from US as their preference was Asian Fusion n it did not disappoint. Tables were set far apart to be able to have a decent conversation.

    We chose to have the $55 chef to feed us option and I would have given 10 for everything but we were asked if we had any dishes that we would really like to have but we didn’t get either of them.

    The roast duck was way too salty to the extent that we had to send it back. Luckily they replaced it & the 2nd one was much better but the meat was not very tender. Portions are rather small, especially for the price. The bao (soft shell crab & chicken) were good though. Massaman curry was average.
