It seems like this Restaurant is more well-known for its dim-sum, but the time I went to, it was already at night. Hence, we could only get the dinner menu which didn't include any dim-sum. The crowd at night was really thin, other than my table, only 3-4 of the available tables were occupied. With the air-con blasting at high speed and the random mix of English and Chinese songs playing overhead, one really wonders how they survive for so long. I must say though, the ambience was there. Quiet and gentle, i could really cut the silence with a knife. They also have a strict dress-code which can be flaunted easily as my company and I were all wearing flip-flops which wasn't allowed. I guess they didn't really care anymore with the few patrons they have.
We ordered Braised Asparagus with Bamboo Piths - $21.00
There wasn't anything special about this and the sauce wasn't that nice either. Normal for a simple dish, although the price was a little steep for vegetables. This was a medium sized portion. But I guess we paid for the service and environment we dined in. The asparagus was quite juicy though, which was really nice.
We also ordered the Braised Cod Fish with Dried Bean-curd - $18.00
I think this dish was more worth it as Cod fish is one of the most expensive fish in the market and they were not very stingy in serving Cod fish that was quite a large thick chuck. The dried bean curd was mediocre though, only enhanced by the sauce which was not too bad. The broccoli was a little tasteless, luckily it's not the star of the dish.
Overall, if I had a choice, I don't think I will frequent this place often. Although parking is not a problem as there is free parking, the food there is purely mediocre and the only saving point is that it is quite high-class so the staff are pretty attentive.
