disappointing at best Jan 13, 2012
After hearing all the raving reviews by friends and seeing the ratings here I decided to visit this place with a friend (who has been there before)
Thankfully we booked a table, even on monday at 9pm it was really crowded.
With only two people you can only order so much, we decided to go for two dishes which both arrived really fast (within 10-15mins, which is a wonder seeing how all the tables were occupied)
風沙雞: the chicken was really tasty and definitely recommended
咖喱牛腩煲: the curry beef pot however was bland and tasteless. very disappointing because others here praise it.
红豆冰 (red bean ice) tasted like ice water with red beans. yuck.
our drinks however didn't arrive so quickly, they probably forgot because it was so busy - no problem, but when we asked the waitress she replied very annoyed: it was only 10mins ago that you ordered them! (she obviously forgot, which isn't a problem but NEVER EVER take it out on your customers) very rude. This alone will prevent me from eating here again.
I'm sure this restaurant can make great dishes, but I guess you have to be lucky which is a shame. Add the unfriendly waitress I will not recommend this restaurant to others.
Supplementary Information:many students visit this restaurant, and somehow they all love to yell at each other. my ears literally hurt sitting next to them.

Most famous dish was most disappointing. Dec 17, 2010
This was obviously meant to be the highlight of the night.
I was disappointed. It was not crispy at all and there wasn’t much to eat, apart from the fatty skin.
I also couldn’t taste any 南乳 , so had to practically lather them in the extra sauce provided.
By 風沙 I had expected there to be a whole plateful of golden deep-fried garlic. There was like... a spoonful sprinkled on the chicken. Generous.
This was not bad, but it wasn’t a whole shrimp on the toast, but just shrimp paste. The sesame was a nice touch. The toast was crispy with just the right thickness that did not dwarf the shrimp layer.
Also not too bad, but I’d have preferred the prawns to be shell-less, so the egg-yolk could coat them better, instead of just sticking to the shells.
The deep-fried outer layer was too thick. This alone, to me, was a major turn-off already.
Seeing that this eatery clearly has much of its strength and emphasis in deep-fried dishes, it seemed inappropriate to not even have a box of tissues on the table… Anyway, on the whole, it was nice to be able to enjoy a variety of dishes, as they were all suitably sized and priced. But with the current quality, I wouldn’t be returning again. Not to mention, the service was extremely poor.

Fresh & Tasty Dec 13, 2010
This old estate is a place that I never been b4.
But believe me, it is worth to try.
The chicken was real fresh.... cripsy skin with tender juicy meat.
The fish soup was real tasty, even I hate drinking soup, I need to have a go.
Beside the dishes, I would like to recomend ginger lemon with coke (hot)... Taste Real Good.
This restaurant shop be listed in 米芝蓮指南....

the most memorable meal in HK in my life Oct 25, 2010
The meal - curry beef and satay beef fans is very delicious. this is the most memorable meal in HK in my life....
however, the Sichuan spicy prawn is quite disappointed, just sweet and sour spicy, not the same as that in mainland - super spicy

crowded Oct 12, 2010
Fried pig’s handfreshly fried, hot and not oily, the inner meat is juicy and the outskin is crispy and the “nam yu” sause is very tasty!!! not enough to share! Pig’s hand has lots of meat, not too much bones. $48 is worth to try!
Garlic parwns steam lo mai rice: prawns is abit not very fresh and garlic is lot, quite salty…..and they give us sweet soya sauce …this can neutralize a bit….and the lo mai rice is not too sticky, we can easy to eat it…., however should eat it very fast otherwise not good if cold….
“Wor tip siu tong choi”: I think it’s a kind of vegetable, but turn out is a fried dish….it’s fried fish meat…quite oily this time and the fish meat is fresh, with some vinegar to dip that’s quite good.
Lots of ppl wait outside even it’s just 6:30pm……
