Travelled all the way to Roxy to try this restaurant with friends. Was a Thai restaurant and renovated to this lovely Chinese restaurant.
Ambience: We were early and amazed at the stylish and upmarket finish, lovely table settings and spaced apart. However walking to the hotel from East Coast road proved interesting as we met many SPGs lining up the corridors of the shopping centers behind Mercure.
Food: We ordered all the chefs special: veg soup with three eggs, beef brisket, 8 treasures, lobster with vermicelli, and tofu. All in claypot. The veg with three eggs stand out, soup stock had a full flavour and well matched with the eggs, could do with a bit more vegetables. Beef brisket was excellent, even the turnips was infused with beef taste. Lobster with vermicelli was well balanced and substantial for the $22 price tag. The only dish we wouldn't order again would be the tofu with veg and roasted pork. To little tofu, not enough veg and tofu.
Value: The chefs special were great prices, about $18 per serving, enough for 4-6 pax.
Service: It was a quiet night and service was great, I think they changed my plate 5 times that night !!
