Ambience is superb, especially good for bringing business and family guests. Food is good quality, but slightly overpriced. Staff can be even sharper in their service. Overall good dining experience, thank you!

This is a nice restaurant located in the 5th floor of a better shopping mall. The customers are mostly Chinese, and there were many families dinning together.
We ordered cocktails, and apparently that caught them by surprise, the confusion was total and the vermouth to prepare a dry martini nowhere to be found - we ended up having gin tonics with no ice.
The service is disorganized, prices quite high and they charge for everything, but the food is very good, and we enjoyed our dinner.

Had a business lunch there and enjoyed the egg white with birds nest as well as the sweet and sour kurobuta. Quite disappointing though as did not get to taste the real taste of the pork.

Yummy dim sim, try the appetizers as well. Service was professional and fast. Prices were much higher though especially in the land of the hawkers. However I still regard it as an excellent place to wine and dine friends and business partners.

I went there with my family to savor their beggar chicken, which required advance order.

The ambience is great, classy and very well decorated with chandeliers. We were given a nice corner as we brought along our baby and a stroller. We have made this request earlier during reservation.

The gentleman serving us is Ken, who is always polite and smiley. Business is good taking into consideration its a Wednesday (Boxing Day).

As the beggar chicken is meant for 8 to 10 adults, we ordered some dim sum to complement the dish.

The beggar chicken turned out to be a huge disappointment. To those who are thinking of trying this,you might need to set your expectation. The chicken was not totally cooked. It is huge and the inner part was not cooked and some parts even abit bloody. The filings are just some mix of vegetables and nothing spectacular. The taste is quite blend. Even after Ken returned with the re-cooked chicken, it doesn't improve our appetite. Ken was apologetic and explained that this $98 Beggar Chicken promotion is relatively new and probably accounts for the not-so-well cooked chicken. He compensated us with 2 free dishes of desserts.

We don't deny this is a great and classy place for dining and special celebrations. For us, overall food is slightly more pricey (of course as we are also paying for their great ambience and service) but their Beggar Chicken is a huge disappointment.
