We were then presented with the menu and the friendly Auntie waited patiently for us to browse through the menu and decided what to eat. She even advised which dish contains pork when she knew our Indonesian helper would be eating with us. She attempted to recommend few seafood dishes as well as those new dishes on menu.

Bowls and plates with utensils and condiments were served soon after we ordered. Though we did not request but plates were given for the kids.

Fried Prawn Paste Chicken came first. Most dishes including this one served in the biggest portion. A total of 16 pieces were served. The chicken drums and mid-wings were seasoned well then coated in a thin layer of batter and deep-fried to near perfection. It was done well to give its skin a noticeable crispiness complemented with tender meat within. The kids particularly enjoyed this dish though the taste of prawn paste was not too distinctive.

Next, it came the Fried Prawn Roll. The prawn rolls were first steamed then chopped into the smaller pieces before coated with a thin layer of flour to deep fried. When it was served, the Auntie reminded us that the filling of this dish contains pork. It was nicely deep-fried to give it the desirable crispiness. It tasted good on its own but tasted even better if eaten with the accompanied sweet sauce.

The Longevity Noodles was served next. We were given the stir-fried and the braised version to choose. We opted for the latter. It was quite a big plate with fresh tasting ingredients like sliced abalone, prawns, squids, shiitake mushroom, sliced carrot and sliced hard-boiled egg. My Grandma particularly enjoyed it. She wanted a refill after her first bowl.

The Fried Egg Omelette with only prawns came next. Though this dish was meant for the kids but we specifically requested to omit the pork so our helper could have it too. It was a simple dish with comforting taste.

Herbal Duck Soup was recommended by the friendly Auntie. She suggested we go for a pot first and to order more if we like it. The herbal taste was a little overpowering. Some of us enjoyed it but some did not. It would be nicer if the duck meat was slightly softer.

Sweet & Sour Pork was our favourite dish. The chunky pieces of pork were deep-fried then stir-fried with the sweet & sour sauce with its other ingredients like the green pepper, red pepper, pineapple, onion and tomato to give it the desired taste. The sauce has got a well-balanced taste of sweetness and sourness that went well with rice.

The Fried Rice was served next. The portion was substantial to share amongst us. Though not the best tasting fried rice but it has got a comforting taste that we liked. The texture of the rice was rather grainy and not overly greasy but the wok taste seemed missing.

Braised Tofu with Mixed Vegetable served last. The deep-fried tofu was braised well with flat beans, cabbage, carrot, shitake mushroom and cauliflower etc. A comforting dish to go with rice.

It was an enjoyable dinner to celebrate our dearest Grandma's birthday as a family. And, the total bill was reasonably charged at $119.00.
