Food review

8.0

Most dishes looked exquisite and delicious. Dim sum's are made with fine ingredients such as caviar and gold leaf but the taste wasn't particularly impressive. Big plates, on the other hand, were great - the Alaskan crab meat fried rice was flavoursome with flying fish roe as topping for extra textures; the fried king prawns were well-seasoned, crunchy, firm and meaty. Dim sum: 50-105HKD each Large plates: 220-1700HKD

Must try

Service

7.0

The servers were friendly and communicative. Although they did not seem knowledgeable about most dishes, they managed to recommend a dish or two.

Atmosphere

7.7

The restaurant is hidden at the basement of the Standard Charted Bank Building. The place is grand with great ambience, and not as noisy as most traditional Chinese restaurants. Tables are quite close to each other which made me feel cramped. Very good otherwise.

Cleanliness

9.0

The restaurant appears clean and neat. The utensils and seats were shiny too.

Ingredients of top quality were sourced from all around the world. For instance, Iberico pork was used for char siu and xiaolongbao, dumplings made with Australian scallops etc.

Price varies depending on the time of visit and dishes ordered since some e.g. abalone, fish maw can cost up to 1200-1700HKD. For reference, I spent roughly 500HKD per head on a weekday for lunch.
