In the new generation of International- styled Chinese restaurants such as Five Senses, tacky traditional features and double happiness paraphernalia have been banished to make way for muted colours and a cosmopolitan cool.
The menu presents a variety of options without overwhelming the diner with choices. There is the bonus of an unusually large selection of sauces to accompany one’s selection. • The house special Hong Kong kailan with Chinese yellow wine and black fungus is raised way above the typical crunchy wholesomeness with a wine sauce of appropriate intensity. • Signature dishes are a reliable route to take and run the gamut from homemade tofu to Peking duck and stewed dong po pork belly with preserved vegetables.
