Took the special Chinese new year buffet, first served at the table with prawn crackers, soup and appetiser, then free to choose from many dishes from the buffet. I had chilli beef and black pepper chicken with rice. I was too full to take any dessert, of which there were many to choose from. Good service and not expensive.

This world class Chinese restaurant in a luxury hotel is as similar to the Chinese cuisine as an American has been familiar with. A particular ethnic cuisine always changes according to the taste buds of its adopted country but I can say with confidence that this Chinese restaurant in Pakistan serves dishes that can be only had in Chicago and...

Good food but on the expensive end. The area is mostly cramped and the chairs and seats are not comfortable to sit on.
