Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant
The 153-seat restaurant, with its various shades of red and brown, provides comfortable banquettes and regular seating that are visually appealing. Xin’s home-style roast duck with tea leaves is delightfully tender and aromatic, with the scent of chrysanthemum, jasmine and oolong tea permeating the crispy-skin poultry. The well-composed menu of modern Cantonese dishes includes the chef’s recommendation of stir-fried wagyu beef cubes with black pepper, paired with sweet longan, crisp asparagus, and red and yellow capsicum in a colourful presentation. For a bowl of nostalgic comfort food, the poached rice with seafood in a rich, delicate superior broth is also recommended, topped with sprinkles of golden crispy rice. Sweet mango coulis with hashima, served in a fluted melon and paired with a warm red bean pancake, leaves a lasting impression. The compact wine list is adequate and service staff do their best in this busy restaurant.
Signature dishes are highlighted on the menu and well worth considering not only for their taste, but also for their appealing presentations.
