    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.

    Good tasty share food and great service. Used entertainment card but will definitely come again and pay full price. Staff excellent and even offered to search the footpath outside for some lost keys after I phoned up enquiring about them. Turns out I had left them at home. Recommended.
