    Did I eat in the same place as all the bad reviewers!? Because my visit ROCKED! :) Service: helpful/fast. Portions: large. Food: lots of sauce, very flavorful, tender meat, fresh veggies.

    Smells like cat piss; egg rolls were bad (bad egg rolls at a Chinese restaurant??); view was nice; bartender or owner was nice

    Disgusto. Got beef chop suey, super greasy. Worst cuts of beef. Hubs got sweet and sour duck &. it was cold. Waited for an hour in during slow hours. Two tables after us got served before we did.

    It's abhorrent! Don't eat here. Bad service and bad food. I refilled my tables drinks.

    Kate Sanders · July 11, 2012

    Don't listen to Yelp. I just had an amazing experience with my whole family. We all got something different and everything was great.

    My tip: Choose a different restaurant!

    Ryan Sepanski · February 19, 2012

    The prawn dish (with lobster sauce) was too salty for my taste, and the Cathay fried rice was bland. The restaurant smelt like a dead rat. Really disappointed.

    Bertrand · January 26, 2012
  • Dave H.

    Should have read the was very bland

    Dave Holland · August 1, 2011

    Where ad men come to get crunked, and watch French tourists actually eat.
