The Good

The dumplings were nice as usual. The juicy meat with chives were wrapped in thin skin. They came out freshly steamed which was a plus. Can’t fault it.

Sorry I was too hungry and forgot to take a photo…

The Mediocre

The chicken clay pot was borderline okay. It was way too sweet for its own good and everything was drowned in a thick gluey oyster sauce. Totally not how I imagined a savoury dish like this would turn out. The redeeming factors are the abundance of tender chicken pieces and soft mushrooms.

The Chinese broccoli was nothing to write home about. Though unsure why they decide to sweeten this dish too?!

The Bad

Not much. Just quit putting sugar in everything!

The Verdict

Overall decent food for a very good price. I would probably advise sticking with the dumplings though…
