Great place for dim sum, and very good prices too. Portions are also huge, so you really do get the holy trinity of good food, great portions, and excellent prices.
Eaten here a couple of times before, and the food is never disappointing, either dim sum or proper dinner. Service is quick too. Its a bit of a random location, next to the ExCel exhibition centre, but if you are ever there for an exhibition or show, do go here for a lunch or dinner!

This place was as typical as a hotel restaurant could get!! Classy, good service, and dishes with high quality ingredients. But it is lacking in atmosphere, something that I think is never possible to have in a hotel dining establishment.
The bar is truly stunningly designed, and had a pretty big crowd on a Saturday evening, although I suspect most of the patrons were guests at the hotel and not locals. It is somewhat of a trek to get to this place from anywhere, but if one is looking for a quiet quality dinner or a relaxing drink, this is the place.
I had the roast cod for dinner, and my girlfriend had the fish pie. The were both really good; the cod was well cooked and was quite a generous portion, but the sauce tasted like Bovril/Marmite which kinda ruined the taste. However, after the first taste it was better. I suspect that the chef used some kind of salty sauce, sort of a westernized miso paste, but miso would have been a much better, and safer, choice.
My partner’s fish pie was better than the cod, and if I ever go back I would probably order that. It comes in a nice ceramic pot, and was full of flavour and fish. The only downside was that it was so small…. it looked more like a side dish than a main course, and I’m sure I could have finished two or three of them!!
I’m not quite decided if I will go back again. Certainly not worth traveling very far for. But they do serve good quality seafood. Price wise its cheaper than seafood restaurants downtown, but still quite pricey.
