Well do not expect something big. It is only few streets, but full of shops and restaurants. The food is really tasty. I personally prefer the place called Happy Seasons. It is crowded and food is tasty. A good sign for quality

Ocean Treasure comes out top of an online poll. I'm not one for classiest, but more for the cheap and cheerful, so I'm not the best person to answer! But good luck.
