Galaxy Macau / Tsui Wah

Went out of our hotel to have midnight snack at the first Tsui Wah in Macau located at the 2F of Galaxy Hotel.

King Sized Prawns with Fried Noodles

"A noodle dish inspired by the classic Peking Sweet and Sour Chili Prawn. The noodles are pan-fried to a crispy and crunchy state, then mixed with succulent sweet and sour king prawns on top."

This dish is so good with just a hint of sweetness and the right amount of chilli that does not burn the tongue but keeps the taste exciting. The number of prawns in the dish was just right. It was served sizzling after a few minutes. The crispy noodles were perfectly done, if I may say so. I am definitely ordering this again and would recommend it to anyone who likes a hint of spiciness in their food. Also, the hot plate ensured the dish didn't grow cold or the noodles to become soggy.

Crispy Buns with Condensed Milk

“Crispy Bun served with sweet condensed milk”is Tsui Wah’s reinvention of a classic Hong Kong snack. Each freshly baked bun is richly coated with thick butter and condensed milk, giving it an irresistible taste that is crispy on the outside and soft inside.

Why order bread with condensed milk in a restaurant when you can just make it at home right? No. Their crispy bun has the right amount of crunch and chewiness, for lack of a better word. The sweetness of the condensed milk is balanced out by the slight saltiness of the butter and the bread. For a midnight snack though it was a bit heavy on the stomach. ;p


We really wanted to try their other food especially the jumbo hotdog but for 2 girls at midnight, it was just too much!

No one is allowed to take photos inside the casino but the interior was too beautiful and I had to risk it.
 Suffice it to say, a Chinese woman shouted at us from across the room telling so we innocently (and briskly) walked away as I put my camera away.
 Some website say the Tsui Wah is only open until midnight, but if I understood the Chinese sign correctly, they are open 24 hours. You may ask for water from the waitress but they'll serve it hot. I didn't know how to ask for cold water.

Peacock wall decor with rainbow changing lights.

We tried to wait for the diamond to float out but we didn't see it. I was wondering though if the koi swimming under the fountain were real.

 The drop off area of Galaxy with a stretch limo casually parked and several other luxury cars waiting.

This place is H U G E. As of the time we went, two other buildings/towers were still being constructed at the back. 

There was so much detail and preciseness put into the making of this hotel and I do want to stay here when I return to Macau. Also, because I want to try the rooftop wave pool.

You can take a free shuttle to Galaxy from other hotels or from the airport or the ferry terminal. Or you can take a bus because there's a bus stop right at the foot of the casino gate. Bus stops have posted details on their routes and it's quite easy to understand and figure out. From Regency Hotel at Taipa Village, we took Bus 21 but you can also take Bus 25.
