Menu slightly limited, but otherwise excellent, really delicious food and friendly service. Our whole party enjoyed the meal. We hope to return at some point.

We had the Sunday menu. Food overall was good but: 1. The lack of flexibility to choose from Sunday and a-la-carte menu was difficult to understand. There was an insistence that the entire table had to choose one or the other. 2. The vegetarian set menu was, on the whole, uninspiring. The gai lan dish looked unappetizing. Not sure why a tofu dish couldn’t be added instead of this gai lan dish. 3. The non-vegetarian menu was better but didn’t offer choice for people who don’t eat pork. The Sunday menu was reasonably priced but I think, unless there are some changes to the menu, I would prefer to eat there Mon - Sat instead.

I booked Kyms on the basis that I have enjoyed dining at A Wong and assumed the experience would be similar. It wasn't. I wanted to take my father who is a keen foodie to somewhere he'd enjoy and was looking forward to our meal there. My father arrived before me and when I arrived the person on the front desk said your father is 'over there' but didn't make any effort to guide me to the table. When I made it clear that I didnt know where 'over there' was, they realised this and took me to the table but somehow rather begrudgingly. The atmosphere was ok but the music was far too loud and the environment seemed aimed at the young city crowd which made the restaurant feel more like a generic chain restaurant than a unique place that retained the simple charm of it's sister restaurant. It was so loud that we had to shout to have a decent conversation. I asked if we could move table, the same floor manager came to try to help but somehow we got into a confused conversation where she got irritated at my request to be asked to move. I found her manner unprofessional and rude. The other waiters were young but much nicer but this person just doesn't know how to make a customer feel welcome. The food was good, but not brilliant. We ordered a main dish of vegetable rice with truffle which was actually glorified egg fried rice with peas and a few truffle shavings on top. It did taste good, but wasn't a unique dish as the menu implied. The green bean fritters were actually green bean tempura, not fritters, which I wouldn't have ordered had I known this. They were too oily for a 'light' small plate. The seabass was delicious. The aubergine was ok but the sauce too overpowering and took away from the delicate flavour of the aubergine in the end. When we came to ask for our coats, the waitress struggled to find our belongings as they had been piled in with everyone else bags on the floor with no coat tag or number so we were asked to find our items ourselves. I think it's a shame that such a good restaurant as A Wong has tried to go 'mainstream' but just ended up going down in it's quality of service and food. I would turn down the music, get more professional staff, and write a menu that described what you were ordering. I doubt I'll return.

Little bit on the expensive side. Non veg food great but veg options needs some work and more variety. Tried the pineapple custard bun for dessert, tasted like tinned custard.

Food and drink were at the average level, price on a high side. A lot of improvements on service - waitress chewing gum at work, the reception lady treated us and other western customers differently, keep touching her hair on the floor, waiters took away / clean our table without asking, didn't change our plates when serving the main course... Kitchen staffs chatting so loud in the open kitchen...

I would like to leave a few notes about service. We ordered a few snacks (Salad, crispy duck, French beans) and also some roast meat dishes but because it is an express lunch after having had the snacks for about 30 mins we wanted the other food to come out so that we could eat the different varieties at the same time. We asked 2 waiters and they both said that they will not bring out the food until we have finished all the snacks. I then had to leave when the mains were brought out. I also had to ask for the bill twice and then in the end I went up to the desk to pay. This was very disappointing. Also, as a person of Chinese culture, it is not uncommon (in fact, the norm) to serve all the food at the same time.
