As it was the eve of the Lunar New Year, we arrived at the restaurant to find many people crowded around the entrance, it was quite chaotic. After some commotion, and a short wait, we were finally seated at our reserved table.
We had selected one of the set menus with 7 dishes for a group of 11.
First up was the Lo Hei. Presentation was average, taste was fair. It was interesting as they had used plum sauce in place of traditional sweet sauce.
Second dish was braised shark's fin with shredded chicken. It was a clear broth, taste was pretty good. The dish however was served without vinegar and pepper, which we had to request for, and both the vinegar and pepper came in small dishes. Would have been better if served in separate bottles and not in small dishes.
Third dish was abalone with broccoli and radish, topped with Fa Choy.
Fourth dish was steamed fish. It was nicely cooked and fresh.
Fifth dish was coffee spare ribs. Tasted somewhat sweet.
Sixth dish was Bok Choy with Sea Cucumber and Mushrooms.
Last but not least, we had the Almond Cream with Taro cubes for dessert. A tad sweet for my liking.
Overall, I felt the servers were not well-prepared for the crowds. Also, if seated deep inside the restaurant, it was pretty stuffy and hot, and it felt as though the AC was not working well. Food-wise, taste was fair.
Perhaps worth a try again on a normal day where service might have been better.
