-2nd time visiting, and service and seating took a long time.1st time going was at night and everything was much faster, but some food may sell out
-don't like the congee but certain fried stuff are good
-yet to try rice rolls, take way too long
-orders get mess up, you get the fried chinese doughnut from the person you order from but they tend to forget, things are not computerized, ordered before the person beside but they got "our" food instead
-pricing is fair
-a huge variety of food, more than before
-a good place to eat but took too long for the food to come considering they're easy to make, lacking staff
-not open on tuesdays

Style: congee (粥), street food (大牌檔)
