Leong’s Legend

In the day this restaurant can be quiet, but it can pick up and get busy from 6pm and onwards.

It has a simple design, with wooden tables, dark walls and dimmed lights. In a way, it creates an atmosphere of ancient China, since they emphasise on the usage of traditional weapons as decorations.

You can find both Chinese and Taiwanese food, with a huge selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes.

A great recommendation to try is the glutinous rice, the spring rolls, the spring onion pancake and the dumplings.

If you like spicy food, then you should definitely order the silken tofu with preserved eggs and the seabass in chilli sauce.

With large tables for group dining and a upper restaurant style environment; it gives something between a casual yet fancy atmosphere.

They serve Cantonese and Pekinese food. You can find a variety of meat, fish, vegetarian, noodle and rice dishes here.

The dim sum is made fresh and each separate dish is full of flavour. A great recommendation would be to order all the dim sum dishes with prawn as a main ingredient for the filling.
