This review is taken from the 2013 edition.
The family owners of this modest but meaningful establishment have created a solid, popular menu with no reliance on greasy oils that leave an after-taste. On the contrary, the crispy coconut king prawns are light as a feather and deliciously delicate. A vegetarian option from the mains is the innovative pak choi and broccoli with soy bean pesto. Like their soy sauce – a delight itself – the pesto is smooth and fresh-tasting. The well-presented menu has good quality images of various dishes, including a whole page dedicated to sushi with a couple of dozen choices, as well as eight and fifteen-piece sushi boxes. Hong Kong Chinese, Thai and Japanese style dishes compete for space among the extensive starters and mains such as tempura, spring rolls, tofu, chicken wings, Peking duck, satay, wok curry – the list is long and enticing. This takeaway really delivers on taste.
