    Extremely disappointed dinning experience. I showed my entertainment book gold card to the waiter when I was ordering my food. The waiter confirmed that I was able to use the gold card to exercise my 25 percent discount.

    Unfortunately, as I presented the card while I requested the bill, the cashier refused the card and said that I could not use the card for discount because I ordered a four people banquet.

    It would have been fine if this was pointed out to me when I ordered my food. What makes matter worse is that that cashier was rude. She claims that the rule was stated in the book but it doesn't. She also told me to ask the waiter for the discount. This type of attitude is not acceptable for restaurant that claims to be on gold class.

    The Eight is the typical Yum Cha place: Yummy food with The Zero service.

    Please wait to be seated and they really meant it. Wait as in ignored, stood there for like five minutes before getting some form of ungrateful grimace.

    Once you get seated, it's another story, the food was fresh and the fried food were still warm even after being pushed around which is always a good sign.

    No complaints about the food. Everything was seasoned and nothing was overcooked. I'll let the photos speak for this one.

    Conclusion - You really only pay for the food at this place, it's above average but if you're treated like dirt as you step in, the food has to be really exceptional to come back to. Funny thing is, the people earning the least i.e. people pushing the trolley are the friendliest of the lot.

    If it's a big group and you couldn't care less about the sloppy service it might be actually acceptable to dine here. Don't fell bad if you don't tip.

    Enjoyed the yum cha experience at the Eight. Except it's just too loud and the service is very Chinese. The food was pretty good though so I suppose that's the main thing.

    Great Dim Sum. Tasty and fresh food with large variety. But the toilet is terrible, tap is broken, always look grimy and dirty. Prefer to use one outside in Market City. Wish the owner could spend money refurbishing the toilet.

    We saw their facebook page and tried the peking duck. The peking duck was only $38.8. I have to say it was value. I love their peking duck, the skin was very crispy. It was way better than my expectation.

    The dim sim was great, lots of variety. We have 15 of us and were sitting at the round VIP room. Is was very nice and private. The service was ok, and the wine list was huge. Would definitely go back.

    Yum Cha was stereotypical. Service was normal and ambiance was noisy. The decor was quiet nice and vibrant. Also, the food was quiet nice. (May) be returning in the future.
