Located in Orchard Central, this restaurant serves Chinese cuisine.
Had dim sum lunch there on Sunday 29 May 2011. I like the location, the atmosphere, the food and the price. They are also quite considerate when serving your food. They served all the savory items first, then the sweet items, so you don't have to have a mixed-up of tastes.
The quality of foods is above average, and there is enough variety to choose. The 30% discount applied to dimsum items only. Ala carte orders side dish are without discount. We ordered intestine (卤生肠）and cuttlefish （墨鱼）. Both were nice.
We’re gonna start off by letting you know that this particular dish review is based on the fact that a) we were here during lunch time, hence b) we went for the value-for-money set meal, and c) we love Chinese food to begin with. Now that we’ve stated our disclaimer, we’d also like to add that the service here was fast and friendly, the atmosphere was buzzing but never too busy and the food was pretty d*** good!
While going through the menu and deciding which soup to order, which generally costs about $22 per pot, we were quickly recommended the seafood set meal, which comes with, get this: One pot of soup, one roast meat combo, one seafood of the day, two choices of main course, and two choices of dim sum, all for just $48! We were obviously ecstatic. Whereas most set meals at other establishments can be second-rate, the quality of the food here was superb, and lived up to the namesake of its parent company in Hong Kong. Kudos to our server—who did not try to make the most money out of us, but instead ensured that we got the maximum bang for our buck.
Our dim sum of fried beancurd stuffed with prawns was one of the best we’ve had, while the steamed mushroom and spinach har kow was also pretty decent and appetizing. But it was our mains and soup that rocked. The fish soup boiled with chicken and pork ribs brought out the essence of what makes Chinese soup so quintessentially Chinese to begin with and the whole affair was topped with gingko nuts which was a nice touch; while our fried fish head with mushroom, black beans and capsicum was just as fragrant—and yummy.
Our main of braised beancurd with minced chicken and salted fish was also filled with a surprisingly delicate fusion of flavors, although our poached seasonal vegetables with superior stock was a tad ordinary. Ditto our dessert of chilled mango with sago ($5.50), which was nothing to write home about. Still, considering the price that we paid, this is a great option. So if you’re working around the Orchard area, we suggest that you head to Victoria Peak now!
We took the $388 CNY set. Great yummy food and value for money especially the Abalone taste great. The waitress that served us was great and friendly. She said a lot of good luck words and she changed our plates for every dishes she served. Great service. The view was great too as it is on the top of Orchard Central.

I have traveled the world, and eaten in many countries. I must say that last night was one of the WORST dining experiences I ever had, and what worse than for this experience to happen in my own country, Singapore :(
My sis brought us to this restaurant last night to treat us to dinner, since we have been away for a year. We opted for their 4-course abalone and sharks' fin dinner, and at a cost of $216++, was a really horrid experience for the value, the food, and the service. The menu had the following food:
- Barbeque Combination
- Sharks fin with fish maw
- Stir-fried Garoupa Fillet
- Abalone in Stoneware
- Stir-fried daily greens
- Rice porridge with seafood
- I am giving one of the lowest ratings because this restaurant's portion for 4, is LITERALLY portion for 1. Each of the above (except for the rice porridge) was served in a small plate that is literally for 1 person in any restaurant I have been to.
- I am giving it a combined 3 rating because the abalone was not bad. However, the horrible part of it was that this is a Hong Kong restaurant, and they DID NOT get the sharks fin right. The sharks fin was not cooked properly, resulting in our eating sharks fin that was semi hard (much like chewing uncooked bee hoon). This was a DOWNRIGHT failure, and the night was totally ruined given that we are paying huge $$$ for this.
This is ZERO, because I am putting 110% blame on the manager for this. I informed the manager of the sharks fin problem, giving him a chance to rectify it. The ONLY thing he did was to tell me that he will feedback to the chef (what has this got to do with me? It's none of my business what he's going to say to the chef), other than that, NOTHING. No apologies, no initiative to appease the customer.
In all the places I have been, most restaurant managers would have done something to appease the customer, given that the customer is rightfully upset for something BELOW PAR. This restaurant did not do anything.
FAIL. AVOID THIS RESTAURANT AT ALL COSTS.
