Lo­cated in a colo­nial build­ing dat­ing back to the 1880s, Cas­sia is a supremely el­e­gant fine din­ing Chi­nese restau­rant that checks the boxes for good food and great set­ting. Glam­orous yet el­e­gant in­te­ri­ors by renowned ar­chi­tect An­dré Fu en­sconce din­ers in con­tem­po­rary Chi­nois lux­ury, while its lo­ca­tion in Sen­tosa makes it a tran­quil es­cape from the town crowds.

From so­phis­ti­cated cre­ations to tra­di­tional, seem­ingly sim­ple ones, the food at Cas­sia is mas­ter­fully pre­pared. Don't miss its stel­lar dou­ble-boiled thick chicken broth with fish maw, scal­lops and flower mush­room with its rich yet lightly tex­tured broth; the very fra­grant and smooth home­made bean­curd with truf­fles and bail­ing mush­room; and wok-fried M9 wagyu beef which is ten­der and juicy, with a su­perla­tive pi­quant, com­plex but per­fectly bal­anced black pep­per sauce.

Also worth order­ing is its juicy five-spice roasted York­shire pork belly with a de­light­fully crisp crack­ling; and the crispy sweet and sour pork, a seem­ingly or­di­nary dish but done ex­tremely well in­deed. Its week­end Ori­en­tal Dim Sum Af­ter­noon Tea is also well known. Fi­nally, ex­pect top-notch ser­vice with at­ten­tive, friendly and im­pres­sively knowl­edge­able staff and an in­ter­est­ing Chi­nese tea menu. *Good to note Cas­sia is rel­a­tively wheel­chair-friendly with lift ac­cess (ask the staff for direc­tions), and eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble by car or cab. Capella Sin­ga­pore, 1 The Knolls, Sen­tosa Is­land. Tel: 6591 5045
