I found this restaurant accidentally by walking around the shopping area next to Marriott. Since it said it is a Hong Kong style Chinese restaurant I decided to give a try. In fact I visited two times in two days.
Chinese food and Japanese food, though have some similarity, are two very distinct food cuisine. Whenever I visit a Japanese restaurant, I prefer to visit one owned and run by Japanese.
The restaurant has a sushi bar near the entrance, with a TV mounted on the wall. Guests can enjoy sushi and beer while watching NBA. I visited with 3 others so we selected a square table inside. There were not so many guests at dinner time so it is quiet. One does not always see a Chinese restaurant with a see-through kitchen wall like this unless the owner has high level of confidence in hygiene. It is interesting though that open kitchen of this type is not common in a Chinese restaurant.
For dinner we ordered a beef mignon, sweet and sour pork, fried morning glory vegetable as suggested by the waiter, fried rice vermicelli, and a corn soup. Portion is very generous. Taste is generally acceptable because I do not have very high expectation. But I would say a corn soup from a can cooked by myself is better than their soup.
The next day we came here again for lunch. We ordered some dim sum, fried rice, prawn with vermicelli and vegetable. Again, portion is big, the food is acceptable and service level is generally good.
There is one problem though is that a gratuity of 18% (roughly) was automatically added to our bill of party of 4 which I think is not the norm to do that.
Before I came here the previous evening, I surfed over tripadvisor for opinion. I saw one review published earlier that complained about finding bones in a steamed sea bass. I would like to share my opinion here. Chinese usually serve fish, especially steamed fish, in whole, meaning Chinese cook the whole fish from head to tail and serve as is, with ginger, green onion and soy sauce. So when Chinese serve fish, whether in whole or in part, bones is usually not taken away by the chef. It is the eater who needs to take the bones away. That is why the waiter did not think it is a problem to have bones in a fish. On the other hand I can understand why some people who do not eat fish that way found it unacceptable and frustrated to find bones in it. It is a matter of different culture and habbit. Just do not believe everything from a TV show. Whenever you go to an exotic restaurant or place be prepared to see and experience something different. Similar case for fortune cookies. It never appeared in China, only in American Chinese restaurants.
When you have Japanese sushi or sashimi, of course bones are taken away from the piece of fish before serving. When you order grill whole fish in Japan, the whole fish (usually small ones), including head, tail and bones is served. Even when you eat tempura in Japan, the fried fish comes with small bones.
