To be honest, I’m quite disappointed by the presentation and the taste for the wagyu beef bowl. I would expect the presentation could be nicer at the clifford pier, but I would say the general ricebowl place may serve a even nicer look of rice bowl!

The wagyu beef is tender but that’s the only thing I like for this rice bowl. There aren’t much seasoning for the rice even it looks like well seasoned.

Always the place to go when you’re craving for good chinese food when you’re at the CBD area. Just be mindful that it is always crowded even after working hours. The food is fine but the waiters could be too busy to take the order.

Tried gang of five which includes all flavours except the spicy one. To be honest, I only recall the flavour for the deep fried one filled with mashed potato, and the original one. The smokey duck one isn’t that impressive as I thought.

Quite a nice place to chill after work but since the queue is long, you cant really stay long.

Had the set dinner here plus Yusheng. The food for the set dinner is so-so - not particularly impressive. I heard the food is better when you order a la carte. One of the dishes in the set dinner is only served after we have finished the dessert which comes as a surprise for us.

Came on Friday at 11:45am and the restaurant is already packed with people. The lunch set includes egg noodles (miso mushroom / braised pork / sichuan pork), dumplings (the original / spicy sichuan / veggie mandu / momo curry / fried pierogi / smocked duck) and drinks (longan osmanthus pu-erh / salted plum wolfberry pu-erh / grapefruit thyme strawberry green tea / passion fruit ginger soda).

I picked the braised pork noodle, spicy sichuan dumpling and the salted plum wolfberry pu-erh. The noodle is springy and the braised pork is flavourful. The dumplings is delicious but i was expecting it to be more spicy though. The salted plum wolfberry pu-erg tastes good but a bit too sweet for me.

Overall, it is a pretty satisfying meal. I may go for something more adventurous for the dumpling next time and try something else for the drinks too. Worth to come before the queue starts!

Had cantonese dim sum lunch here to be shared among 9. Not particularly impressive by the food though, but a nice place for group gathering.

Had Mr Su’s La Mian dry set for lunch and waited for over half hour for the noodle to arrive. The set comes with a main, a side dish and a drink. Had side dish fried wanton and drunk chick before that which is fine - the deep fried wanton is very crispy while still remain juicy inside.

The La mian is very springy without any strong chemical smell. There is some chinese herbal smell with the braised pork on the side but its not strong. However, the braised pork is serve cold which is a bit disappointing. The oolong tea is not bad but i wish they are not serve in glass since it is quite hot.

Having Lu Rou Fan here (or i should call it 焢肉飯?) as lunch as it is quite satisfying! The Lu Rou is marinated pretty well. Together with the sous vide egg on top and the sauce, the rice bowl is not dry and it’s pretty easy to finish a bowl! I wish the sauce could be sweeten a bit, i feel the sauce is a bit plain with only saltiness.

All the foods here are so homey - the pumpkin rice, the lotus root soup ($6.5), and the dishes. The pumpkin rice is moist and tasty. It may not look instagrammable, but is something you’re looking for on rainy days or after a long day of work.

We tried the all in one boat ($6.5), Rice Rolls with fried dough sticks ($6.5) and fresh prawn roll with egg. The all in one boat comes in a smaller portion than expected but is very thick in texture - much thicker than those I had in HK. Checked with colleagues who went last week and it could be the issue today only as it wasn’t like this before. However, there is a lot of ingredients included so quite filling for us.
The rice rolls with fried dough sticks is bigger than expected. The fried dough sticks is not crispy enough but not bad. The prawn roll with egg (and veg) is more on the sweeter side, probably due to the soya sauce. But i would say 3-4 people should share one rice roll. It is a bit too much for us. I had a taste of the HK milk tea that my colleague bought. It is too sweet for me and not authentic - they use jasmine tea rather than english breakfast tea I believe.

8 of us took the reunion lunch set ($388++) and we are all so full afterwards! The portion is generous with a variety of dishes. The claypot chicken is a must try here and is included in the set, together with the walnut bun, the fish, the chilly crab meat with the bun, the pork knuckle with chicken feet, the soup and dessert etc (cannot remember all cause there is a lot), i must say it is a 10-person set rather than for 8 as shown on the menu! All the dishes are delicious and worth trying again if you’re looking for a chic place with cantonese dishes.

We went here on a Thursday night and was assigned to sit at the high table which is not so comfortable. Ordered a few dishes which is either $5/$10 and the dishes come with freeflow of rice. Had alcoholic drink which is $5 too so the dinner is quite reasonable in terms of the price. The food is so-so - not particularly impressive though.
