Located at MBA tower 2 lobby, it a beautiful Chinese restaurant served Cantonese, Hunan and Si Chuan cuisine. The restaurant served dim sum and a la carte dishes. I order two dim sum and few la carte. The "Xiao long bao" and prawns dumpling. Xiao Long Bao is filled with hot pipping juicy stock wrapped with think layer of dumpling skin whereas the prawns dumpling is fresh and crunchy. I also ordered Sauteed beef tenderloin cube with black pepper and red white sauce is both aromatic and tasty. Beef texture is tender and juicy. Last I order seafood fried rice. The rice is not oily and diced seafood is fresh. For dessert I order the eight treasure yam pudding - Jin Shan Signature dessert which is perfect to pamper my sweet tooth

My family and I decided to dine there as my daughter was having her staycation at the hotel. We chose this as we were with elderlies and we thought Chinese restauramt would be most appropriate for old folks. We had chosen the Mother's day Special set menu, and out of the 3 options we had chosen the second tier $138++ per person. First course was the properity buns which were really tiny but we did not complain as it was really soft and fluffy. My elderly mother who has very aprticular tastebud said she could eat a few by herself for breakfast. Never in my wildest dreams, my nightmare began here. The next on the list was the platter. It took more than 20 minutes to come. My husband was really angry but he calmly asked the male manager what was happening. Not only he did not apologize, he was very defensive and said, "No! Because of this one!" pointing at the deep fried crab claw. Then he went on to say, "if you want we send the food altogether now" we were really hungry so we said ok. Then the food came without giving time for us to even eat. There was no space on the table. Once, the food was placed and as we picked up the piece usng chopstick, the plate was cleared for the next course. The staff and the manager are really on the verge of being rude, where they talk to the customers as if we are the biggest sinners. Second last course was noodles which came in a big pot, and they asked if we wanted it to be distributed in 6 portions. We said yes and then it came back 5 portions. All the waitress could say was "没有了,全部分完了." Not a word of sorry. Final straw came, when the waitress refilled our glasses meant for Sprite with cold water, diluting our sprite. Then we were slapped with a bill of $1001. One thing to compliment about would be the quality of food. I must admit that most of the courses were quite tasty. But it still didn't justify the lousiest service I had ever experienced in a Chinese restaurant located in a premium and iconic hotel. They really need to step up on their service, but we are definitely sticking with the buffet restaurant next door for now, maybe for long.

It wasn't even cooked by the master chef. And the carrot cake was the best I've ever tasted. I can still taste it. Also there's this dimsum with char siew inside(not sure what it is called). Apparently they make all the sauces and flavoring from scratch, hence very different from other restaurants that uses processed ones.
