we tried the tasting night that allow you to try several kind of asian dishes on a sharing basis. the food was globally appreciated by the group except for the desserts that we found average. The decor would maybe need to be modernized.

Our second visit in 2 weeks. First there were 12 of us, this time only 3. A brilliant night, just kept ordering from a taster menu, everything delicious. I don't like dum dum but my daughter in law ate enough for all of us.

We choce the taster menu which means you can have taster portions of as much as you like and then chose you favourite dish as the main.The taster was brilliant and so good we had enough to eat without having the main which I think came as a shock to the staff.

Service was excellent and well timed. Special recommedation for the dishes: black pepper beef, prawn dumplings, mongolian crispy beef, and bok choy. Wines and pairings were good and left a... More

Whether you prefer well-known Chinese dishes like dim sum or if you're feeling more adventurous and want to try exotic foods (braised shark fin, anyone?) you'll find it all on the menu. And some hot tea to add to the experience.

I have eaten chinese all over the world (including China,) and this was one of the best. The food is cooked to order in courses, so no buffet where it is just left on the side.
