Heard this place served good food, so we decided to give it a try. It’s located on Basement 2, at the corner of the row of shoe shops, shouldn’t be that hard to find. We visited the restaurant around 2-4pm HK time, so it wasn’t crowded at all. The restaurant was serving afternoon tea at that time, so the menu was pretty limited to several dishes only. The menu is printed in Chinese, so do take note. For afternoon tea, dishes have to be ordered in sets and each set comes with complimentary soybean drink or sour plum drink. Each set comes with a small side and a main dish, and is actually meant for one person, though you can order to share, that’s acceptable too.
For sides, we ordered marinated mini pork ribs, vegetarian spring rolls and Shaghainese “Siu Mai”, which uses glutinous rice instead of traditional meat fillings. For mains, we ordered Yangzhou Fried Rice, Stir Fried Rice Cake with Shredded Meat & Vegetables, and Braised Beef with La Mian Soup. We also made an additional order of Xiao Long Bao. The food was absolutely delicious; I really enjoyed it very much. Special mention goes to the Xiao Long Bao; the thickness of the dumpling skin was just right, and each parcel was filled with fragrant broth and succulent meat. The Yangzhou fried rice was so fragrant and delicious that we ordered 2 servings of it. The stir-fried rice cake too was done really well, though the rice cakes themselves were a little too chewy for my taste. I had problems with the La Mian, which were too soft to be picked up using chopsticks; the noodles kept getting snapped in two… Served in a clear broth, it caters more for those who prefer a lighter taste compared to those heavy on flavour. The tasty braised beef that accompanied the La Mian is an indulgence because it has a lot of fatty meat in it. The La Mian was my least favourite, simply because after trying some very tasty and flavourful mains, the light flavour of noodle soup failed to leave an impression on my taste buds. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the meal very much; the food was just awesome!
Service here is ok; the service crew are polite and helpful in explaining how their afternoon tea thing works. They are quite efficient as well; food came within 10-15 minutes after placing our order. The price is mid-range too; our meal for 7 people came out to only around HK$300. For great food and a pleasant restaurant ambience, this restaurant is quite a good value for money! I will definitely pay this restaurant another visit!
