I find the dishes relatively creative. Considering that this location is within an industrial estate, the kind of dishes served seemed a little "u siu" (dainty). The portions were also not very big.
We ordered Tangerine prawns, Signature Chicken & a Mushroom-vege dish. Of all the dishes, my favourite was the prawn dish. It was tangy as the name suggest and quite appetizing; according to the chinese name, there was hawthorn (san zha) juice. The chicken were mainly drumettes and had not much meat on it as it was served with the meat cut to reveal the bone. The mushroom-vege dish was stir fried with a plain sauce but with plenty of piquantness from black pepper (quite different from the usual "stir-fry with garlic" type). What I like about these dishes were that they tasted light. Not the heavy going taste that one would associate with local chinese food.
We went on a Sunday, so things were kind of quiet. Wouldn't have found or go to this place if we had not been looking for furniture. Am not sure if on weekdays, when the industrial estate is in full swing, would the restaurant be busier. However, the service was by way of pressing buttons for various kinds of service from a gadget on the table - it would set off a chime and the waitress would come. Ambience wise, the place is not as dainty as the food; more like a casual air-con Chinese dining place (commensurate with it located in industrial estate). The live seafood were placed in open tanks near the entrance.
