    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.
