Just received their xmas eve and new year special and I finally make up my mind to write a review. I mean they are deserved. Their quality of food may not be the top but the sauce are surpreme. Here are my recommendation;

1. any curry dishes during lunch time. If you are lucky enrough (bc they change their lunch special once or twice a week), try their curry in different version, it will out a lot of thai and curry house behind.

2. Ox tail fettuncine. This dish is on their regular lunch menu, the sauce is so rich. If you dont have a big stomach, you can finish half of that and pack the rest. Make some fresh pasta and reheat the ox tail and sauce. Yummy.

3. Duck a la orange. Once again, this dish is all depend on the sauce since duck meat is already tasty. My no. 1 choice.

4. Duck breast. Plum sauce go with juicy duck breast make me hungry.

5. Lamb rack. Bread crumbs coated make this lamb rack separated from other.

I write this review bc I want to give this one to our chowhunder to try and see otheir option.
Enjoy it.
Last thing, here is the special on xmas eve,

    Hi pokerdan,

    The Ox tail fettuncine is good. I found it as a whole a bit too heavy, there is room for improvement especially the sauce, maybe add some sweetness to it to balance it out ... not sure, but for the price they charge, it is not bad, and it is better than the one at Cafe 28. I found these two HK western food restaurants + maxim are relatively better in quality in Richmond Hill / Markham area. I will try the duck next time as this is your no.1 choice. Thanks.
