Disappointed - Don't wast time May 21, 2011
We went in the resturant becaue they have several shops on the same street. With the expectation mindset, we left the resturant unhappily finally with the comments as follows.
1/ Bad food: the food was cold, does not taste good at all
2/ Long trun around time: We waited 40 minutes to have the first dish, but the food was cold. We finished 6 dished in one and half hours.
3/ Poor service quality: the waiter & waitness are rude, not helpful
4/ Environment is poor: dirty, untidy & crowded

重慶燒 - Loving skewers! Jul 05, 2010
Me and him are such great fans of skewers. But all of you must know,
eating skewers are quite a luxury in Hong Kong.
That day, after watching "A-Team" at Elements (FYI, quite a crappy film!),
we walked to Jordon. It was not so hard to find and took us about 15 mins
to get there.
Just like many other skewer restaurants, all skewers tend to taste alike
since they are all marinated in the same ingredients. They tasted quite
alright, but I was mostly impressed by their 燒內蒙羊仔架. Pretty good
quality especially given that price. The 法式香草芝士牛油焗帆立貝 was
fine, but slightly oily and the cheese was tasteless.
Just a place to chill with friends. Guess worth giving it a try.

One taste, many textures May 05, 2010
Eating spicy food is always a good opportunity to show off your machismo. This is especially so for people from Southeast Asia, India, Szechuan or any place with habaneros in the local cusine.
Was part of a large group that came here for dinner. There were a couple of people in the group who were devastated that they weren't able to make it - they have apparently been raving over this place since the last time they came.
We order multiple orders of eggplant, scallops, oysters, pork neck, chicken cartilage, eel, mackrel, barbequed rice (like onigiri), kidneys, beef tongue, mushrooms and vegetables. ..many items and they were actually cooked quite well. So the kitchen was clearly competent.
And maybe I'm missing something about the Hong Kong palate that so many Cantonese reviewers think this place is the bomb...everything... but EVERYTHING was laced with the same flavour powder - seemed to be made up mainly of salt, chilli powder, dried rosemary and garlic. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that the owners are using the restaurant merely as a means of advertising the myraid recipies on which their secret spice mix can be used. If you can't handle spicy food, a meal here quickly degenerates into a guess-that-meat-from-its-texture game cos that spice powder is a constant and intrusive presence.
Even if you can take spicy food. What's the point? With no sauces or dips or any other flavour options, your best bet is to leave your taste buds at home.

Give it a go... May 12, 2009
We didn’t realise there are a lot of eateries around this old residential area. The streets inside this area are not very busy and they look like some area in Singapore/Malaysia with little restaurants along both sides of the streets. We tried this one for the first time and we ordered:
Grilled lamb chops – seems to be the house special but they missed the order at the first time so we had to order it again; came in 4 pieces and quite filling
Grilled pork cheeks – good texture
Grilled pork chop – very big piece but the taste wasn’t great at all
Grilled beef fillets – so-so
Grilled beef tongue – so-so, didn’t taste very much like beef tongue!
Grilled eggplant – big flat piece and the sauce matched well with it
Grilled squid – good and not too dry
Grilled eel – very good especially the skin was crunchy
Grilled small fishes – so-so
Clams in original sauce – Teppanyaki style and they were tasty
We can eat spicy food so we ordered “medium” spicy and I guess they just put more herbs on the meat. It was a Sunday night so the place wasn’t too packed and we didn’t have to wait for long for the food. Just that the staffs seemed to miss orders for a few tables cos we had to share the table with others. A little odd that gf and I sat right next to each other but not opposite. This place is not bad with the price and quality of the food but don’t expect to have very good service.

Waste of Time Jan 07, 2009
One of the worst restuarants I've ever been to. Went there with good expectation since I saw some good comments here but left with great dissapointment and anger. Service very bad, the place is very noisy, and the food taste so so. The table is very dirty and not clean thoroughly. We asked to order drinks for few times and the waiters ignored us and then bring us the wrong drinks after we ordered. Then ordered 8 different things and 5 came in over one and a half hour in interval of 15-20 mins each. Even a 5 course French meal won't take that long. One of the dish we odered is cheese sausage, how long does it take to cook really, over an hour and a half and still not ready, totally unacceptable. Then we saw the next table who came much later than us but got the oysters that we ordered. I asked them why our order which was placed before them but still not ready. They just casually replied that probably forgot to place the order. It seems like they have so much business that they don't care about losing a few customers. The food all taste the same which they just covered with the same herb. The pineapple taste very sour. I have to agreed with others here that this place has very bad service and the food is only so so and take forever. We finally cancelled the rest of our orders and left. And over heard the table behind us was also very upset that some of their dishes didn't come and asked to cancel. What a waste of time to come to this place.
