Full Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/02/zi-char-imperial-treasure-group.html
Went to Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine), which is known for its tasty and high quality Chinese Cantonese Zi Char dishes. But the others decided to go for their excellent Dim Sum instead. As part of the Imperial Treasure Group, Cantonese Cuisine has the same hallmarks of Chinese fine dining, and uses only the freshest ingredients, allowing them to shine through on the plate.
Ambience at Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) is spacious, laid out for communal group dining. I did note that the lights were rather dim though. The interior has colours of teak and white, contrasted by Imperial Chinese decor. Furniture is comfortable and functional, while the tables are sufficiently large to place all dishes ordered at once.
Service at Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) is very good. Staff are friendly and efficient, and are able to make recommendations from the menu. They also help with portioning of food if requested. I also liked that they came round regularly to top up drinks.
Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) focuses mainly on Cantonese cuisine, whose hallmarks of freshness of ingredients is well showcased here. The Dim Sum is very good. Prices at Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) are slightly higher than average, because of their insistence on using premium quality ingredients.
The Steamed Prawn Dumpling has fresh and meaty prawns / shrimp, and the skin isn't too thin or prone to breaking. The Fried Bean Skin Roll, while rather oily, is crisp and quite satisfying when bit.
The Pork And Prawn Dumpling has tightly packed filling, and a whole shrimp within. The Deep Fried Prawn Dumpling was rather average, although the prawn within was fresh and meaty, it was nothing special. The Deep Fried Prawn Fritter Rice Roll is unique, with a fresh prawn stuffed into fried dough fritters, then wrapped in rice rolls, and doused with light soy sauce. Very good.
I love the sauce in the Marinated Pork Bun, although the meat filling was quite little. The bun is a little too thick as well.
