My DC and I went there on sunday.

The good: the johnny cakes were excellent. Crisp, well fried, and slightly sweet. They also have cold, strong ginger beer that was very tasty. The boiled dumplings were good as well, with a nice chew to them.

The bad: Both of the entrees were fairly dreadful. The oxtail beef was a. tiny (I know tiny entree complaints often get dismissed as the cheesecake factory problem, but our portion seriously was. 4 small rounds the size of a large coin, and oxtail has a fair amount of bone). However, the small portion could have been over looked if it weren't for b. the oxtail being lukewarm, and ridiculously tough

The chicken curry was also mediocre. Lukewarm as well, and mostly bone. I adore the flavour of bone-in chicken, but some meat'd be nice too.

The meh: the side of rice and cabbage were ok. Nothing to write home about, but they sufficed as sides.

Shame, as the menu looked fantastic, and I really wanted to love this place.
