The restaurant is located at one end of the second level of hotel, also known as level 1U. We are showed straight to our table although we quite early for our reservation, but waited quite awhile for the first course to be served.
Good service in having the baby chair and cup of water with straw for Little JJ. Nice having wet towel to wipe the hands with. The place is quite grand looking with not much crowd.
The ceiling on top of our table is mirror, which vain little JJ spends much of his time looking at it.
For Restaurant Week, we are served the above 4-course meal for lunch which costs $40++ per person.
The staff has a bit problem in serving the first course of Dim Sum Combination. The deep fried vegetarian spring rolls which is placed upright is toppled for 2 of the 3 plates served. The dim sum consists of Oven-Baked Barbeque ‘Char Siew’ Pastry, Steamed Teochew Style Dumpling with Pork and Peanuts, Steamed Crystal Shrimp Dumplings ‘Har Kao’, and Deep-fried Vegetarian Spring Rolls. Presentation is nice, but food does not make an impression.
The main course is Pan-fried Kurobuta Pork with Black Pepper Sauce. Very tender and flavourful slice of pork. The sauce is also quite well made.
The so called shrimp dumpling looks too small to be a one, more like a wanton. The soup that served with it is flavourful.
Lastly for dessert, we have Homemade Red Bean Paste with Lotus which is quite fine and smooth which I suspect is due to filtering and tastes with a hint of orange peel. The lotus seed is quite soft and tastes sweet too.
The Steamed Salted Egg Yolk Bun that serves with it, is quite small but has quite an amount of lava like filling flowing out.
Overall food is not bad. Despite just 4 courses, we do feel full at the end of the meal. The service is not bad too, with tea keep refilled often.
Total damages : $155.40 ( 3 Restaurant week lunch + 3 house tea at $4 each )
