We recently stayed at Punthill apartments in Cohen Pl, where the Chinese museum is.The Tea House restaurant on the ground floor of the apartments. It was a freezing night, so we decided to try the restaurant and it was an excellent choice. We had different entrees...chicken dumplings, dim sum, and San Choi Ban, all well made and cooked. Two had prawns for main, one cooked in a light batter, the other in a chili sauce, both agreed the food was enjoyable. A dish of sliced chicken cooked in chili and a light sauce and shredded steak lightly fried in Peking sauce, completed the order, both gained the tick of approval. The others had dessert, but I need to comment on my choice...toffee apple. It was presented with very fine strings of toffee over the apple, which itself was encased in crisp toffee. The apple, unlike many others I have eaten was crisp, an altogether delightful dish. There was a choice of beers and wines, as well a non-alcoholic drinks. I must mention the food service, it is the first Asian restaurant I have been in (and there's been a few) where there was silver service ! The dish came from the kitchen, the Maitre D' served it into dishes and the waitress brought the food to the table. The service was excellent, the right amount of time between the dishes, but, it is not cheap. As my friend remarked, we're a long time dead, so enjoy life!!
