Review

Setting

The interior has managed to combine the elements of grand and intimate. The fully carpeted restaurant consists of big round tables with crispy white linens and comfortable mahogany chairs. The walls are dominated by orange and brown tones, and are illuminated by soft yellow lights for an intimate feel.

Food

Start the wonderful meal with the signature smoked duck with Chinese tea leaves. The duck is fragrant that the aroma wafts through the air when it’s brought to your table. The success of the duck lies beyond that, as the skin is cooked perfectly crisp, and the meat has a hint of smokiness and tea flavour. The overall taste complements the meat without overpowering the palate. Another specialty of the restaurant is the shark bone soup. It arrives piping hot and studded with bamboo and fish for a refined and well-balanced finish. A hearty way to end the meal is with the Li Bai fried rice with crabmeat. The well-seasoned fried rice has a generous portion of seafood and egg white, it’s a perfect balance of sweet and savoury in every bite. 

Wine

For a Chinese restaurant, the wine list is very commendable. There is a good selection of Old and New World wines, and the wines by the glass also don’t disappoint.

Service

Service staff are attentive and helpful with their recommendations. The overall dining experience is commendable.

Price   $$$$$

Average lunch for one person can cost $50, while lunch is about $90. Expect to pay more when you order a glass of wine.
