Food: portion and ingredients are generous (please see photo) although I hadn't the chance to try many different dishes I tend to believe that they don't skimp in their products. The only negative is that some dishes came out very oily. One to really avoid is the stir fried rice noodles (炒河粉). Very greasy.
But their mushroom fried rice is absolutely fine and delicious! Not greasy at all.
Place: What caught my eye is that there's an exhaust fan on the shopfront drawing air out. Next, there's a floor fan turned on near the cash register, circulating air in the room. Two cassette type air conditioners on the ceiling. This shows the management's concern for air quality in the dining room, a small detail.
Cleanliness: the table "cloth" looks like cloth and is easily cleaned. The floor is "carpeted" dark green and very clean. For a common Chinese eating place what's unusual is that they provide a full box of tissues on each table.
These are tiny details that give you a clue as to how they approach the running of a food place. And they get high marks.
Kowloon City has its own flavours as a place. Buildings are (still) low, lots of sun shining in. Shops are varied and many are decades old. People are very friendly, lots of Chiu Chows. The place is bustling day and night.
