WHY GO

Both set­ting and cui­sine here cater to a dis­cern­ing clien­tele of cor­po­rate big­wigs and well-heeled gour­mands.

TATLER TIPS Ex­pect an in­ven­tive se­lec­tion of spe­cial­i­ties that adroitly com­bine Can­tonese with Ny­onya, Sichuanese and re­gional Chi­nese culi­nary in­flu­ences.

Dis­tinc­tive dishes worth rav­ing over in­clude steamed cod with baby spinach and spicy chilli oil, chilled shred­ded chicken with lady’s fin­gers in cincalok, prawns with sesame and braised bean­curd with seafood in clay­pot. More so­phis­ti­cated palates may pre­fer the baby lamb ribs with chef’s spe­cial sauce, a nou­veau cre­ation aimed at tempt­ing Chi­nese din­ers to try the del­i­cately gamey meat. Dessert op­tions are also worth ex­plor­ing thanks to cre­ative choices such as chilled av­o­cado puree and os­man­thus jelly.
