Nu Chinese Bistro

Came here for a family dinner and the family decided to let us “kids” decide on what to order and we definitely went way overboard

Nu Chinese Bistro has been getting a lot of heat lately because of their high debts. Apparently the rumour has it that the owner doesn’t want to pay the debts and when the collectors ask for their money they said that they had changed owners. (I heard that they actually didn’t change owners). So there’s something sketchy about the place to being with but anyways… on to the food

Peking duck – 2 ways

  • Overpriced
  • Not crispy
  • Skin was too floury
  • 6/10

Lettuce wrap to go with peking duck

  • The filling was disappointing – not much duck, not a good combination of ingredients
  • Pine nuts were meh – I definitely prefer Koon Bo lettuce wrap peking duck
  • 6/10

Fu chai fei pian

  • 7.5/10
  • Best dish of the nice
  • Good kick from the chilli peppers
  • Flavours were on point
  • But it tasted somewhat overcooked – over mushy

Zheng Jiang Pork Ribs

  • 6/10
  • Dry and unappealing
  • More sour than sweet
  • Not much meat on the bones

Wine Chicken

  • 6.5/10
  • Could have had stronger wine flavour
  • Chicken was dry and not tender

Fried fish with sweet and sour sauce

  • 6/10
  • Big
  • But the sauce was not good – not sweet or tangy – no flavour
  • Fish was not well cooked – too overcooked

Overall – Nu Chinese Bistro was very disappointing. Not only was it expensive but a lot of the dishes were misses. If a restaurant can’t even get simple things correct then what can they do? I will definitely not be coming back for Nu, even if there was a family gathering and I’m forced to go. Because the food was mediocre and the service was non-existent.
