The location is completely wrong. The restaurant is fantastic, 2 floor in Intercontinental Hotel Suzhou

From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, the staff are so attentive, but not to the point where they are intrusive. While a steakhouse, had the fish dish (COD) and must say that my taste buds had an amazing treat.

We had a business dinner here. We ordered some shared starters like oysters, iberico and parma ham which I found rather average. The steaks we had as mains were actually much better, as the sides. Good meat and cooked properly. Not the best wine, but...More
