This huge Cantonese restaurant on three floors, as another entrance on 20 Rupert Street - so can be approached either way.
Over many years, it has formed a benchmark as the standard of the food offered from the Chinese regions has improved over the years.
However, what was ground breaking 25 years ago is still worth more than a mention now - particularly as prices are far more modest than in many competitive establishments.
As well as the good selection of dim sum dishes, which are paraded around on trolleys, the menu stretches to over a hundred items.
So you'll find all the familiar items you might find in your local takeaway (but carefully cooked), plus more ambitious items such as 'Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with Spicy Salt'; 'Jelly Fish & Cucumbers' and 'Shark's Fin Soup with Shredded-Chicken Soup' among the starters.
Dishes such as 'Baked Lobster with Ginger & Spring Onions'; 'Baked Crab with Chili & Black Bean Sauce'; 'Fried Fillets of Eel with Garlic & Chili'; 'Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Duck Egg' and 'Hot Pot of Braised Belly Pork with Preserved Vegetables' might tempt you among the main courses.
Desserts are of the Lychee and Ice Cream variety.
Set meals offer good value and make choosing easy for the novice.
