Years and years ago before it became part of the giant US Starwood Corporation, the Le Meridien chain was owned by Air France and prided itself on French names. That’s why this Oriental restaurant is called Le Belvedere though there is nothing particularly French about it. The food is standard Chinese. Quality is consistent but it seeks to be comforting rather than adventurous.
