This is a haven for Chinese food lovers and the whole idea of some good Chinese food starts and ends here. With the ambience that is perfect for all sorts of guests, a good date, a great corporate lunch or a nice family Sunday Brunch: you are all sorted! There is a lot of black and reds that you can see around yourself, it is all the part of the stellar ambience it can be. The service is usually super quick. The food menu and the drinks menu are very well thought about, it all comes together when you order one dish from each category. The dimsums include a varied range of classics with some new and modern-age flavours too. for instance, we have always loved the ‘Basil and Vegetable Dumplings’ but soon the ‘Edamame and Truffle Oil Dumplings’ have taken over the regulars. They are all very well made and the better part is that the regular and large portion sizes is a good indication that you can save a lot of food instead of wasting it, they are also priced marginally different. We highly recommend the 'Eight Treasure Soup' that is totally worthy and it comes with an assortment of eight vegetables with a ginger-garlic broth. The appetizers include the regular 'Chicken and Red meat' or 'Tofu tossed in Hot Garlic Sauce' or 'Black Bean Sauce' and maybe even just the classic 'Stir Fry'. You can see a similar pattern is followed in the mains and large plates as well. We love the ‘Crispy Pan Fried Noodles with Sichuan Sauce’ and you can pair these with any of the curries you love. The portion sizes of the mains are quite massive so make sure you have enough room for sharing the food. The desserts are very simply made and it actually is a good idea to see a lot of inspiration from Coconut, Mango and Dates being used instead of the regular sugar-laden stuff.
