“lovely setting .poor food”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Was expecting much more . The food was very disappointing and expensive.
At the entrance of the hotel, this restaurant could and should be a wow experience, not a damp squib!

“One of the best Chinese meals you can have”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I spent more on dinner here than on my room rate at the Oriental. It was worth it. Excellent food and ambience.

“The Very Best outside of Hong Kong”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Whether you go for the unlimited dim sum lunch or a fine dining dinner, you will be on cloud nine. The food is outstanding, as is the service and decor. The shellacked duck is to die for. From the appetizers to the soup to the entrees and dessert, you cannot be disappointed!
