The menu is huge and will make you feel like you are reading a newspaper, as you’re deciding on what to eat.

However, the best conclusion to that is that if you are dining as a group, then to order a lot of dishes to share and taste together.

When you have someone who knows about the cuisine in your group, it’s even more beneficial so that way they can even help choose or choose for you.

There are a variety of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, as well as Korean hotpots for even bigger groups. You can come across Chinese ramen dishes, congee, dim sum and even an XL pork soup dumpling.

You can come across some spicy dishes, such as sea bass in chili and some mild dishes such as aubergines in a dark sauce.

You will experience different textures and flavours according to each dish. Some will be soft and plain but with a kick of spice, such as the silken tofu; and others will be sticky, mild but tasty such as the glutinous rice.

The restaurant itself is simple, yet nicely decorated with dark walls, wooden table and stalls as well as decorations of traditional weapons.
