I guess the key in making an unbiased review is not to expect anything for the place you're going to. This was the case for my dining experience here. I was first thinking that this was just your usual Chinese restaurant that would just end up as a place I've tried but wouldn't go back to, but I really wouldn't say all these if it hadn't proved me wrong, so I'll just go ahead and tell my experience.
Their specialty, as what the posters say, is the hand-pulled noodles. But we were simply not in the mood for some noodles (mainly because they don't serve dry noodles I was craving for) so we opted for their other "chinese specialties".
We wanted a vegetable dish as one of our viands, so we ordered Dried String Beans (P200) and were greeted with a manner of cooking that was different from what we were used to. We couldn't decide if it was grilled or pan-fried or what. :)) The string beans were accompanied with garlic bits and some kind of sauce we couldn't name, but it was a such a perfect combination of sweet and salty that we kept on raving about it even after the meal. My 4-year old nieces seemed addicted to it as well. It could actually double as a snack or a meal without rice. It was that good. :p
The way the Lemon Fish Fillet (P270) was cooked really went well with the rest of the dishes we ordered. The lemon sauce wasn't too overpowering and had its distinct taste as it blended with the inner layer of the fillet.
I was really craving for dumplings, so I ordered the Sio Long Pao (P110). It tasted quite plain in comparison to others I've tasted, and lacked the juicy goodness I was looking for on the inside.
The Spareribs with Tausi (P95) has got to be our least favorite among all the dishes we ordered. It comprised of a big amount of fat and was a bit too oily. We also couldn't taste the Tausi that much. It would be better if they really included it in what they served us.
The service was quite fast even though we came at lunch time. Plus points for the jasmine tea. :D
We'll come back next time to see how good their hand-pulled noodles are. And order a serving of Dried String Beans. Or two. :P
