You know what? After all these years, I've never been to the restaurants in this mega mall to end all mega malls. What would be three or four great restaurants out of the dozens that are in this mall?

      I don't think this qualifies as great because there are better places for dim sum, but maybe New Capital?

      There are a couple decent Taiwanese joints too like Nice Time Deli and Ay Chung. Aside from these and Sam Woo, I haven't had any too many mind blowing eating experiences at this plaza.

      There used to be an Islamic Chinese restaurant that wasn't bad as well, but I think it closed down and/or moved to another location.

        Yeah, Tung Lai Shun the Islamic place was the only real destination restaurant there. Also Green Village years ago. Bunch of specialty restaurants there --certainly not bad, but not spectacular either. 108 Cafe good for shaved ice.
