The facade is absolutely enchanting and has a distinct mandarin feel! The first floor has tables clustered together and the aroma or rather stench of sea food (fish) wafted in from the kitchen as we took our seats on the first floor which we immediately vacated. (Our family is purely vegetarian). We shifted to the second floor which is more spacious and is right next to the bar and did not have the pungent sea food aroma thankfully. The table linen and ware is average and not to the status you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. We had to ask to be provided with a knife? :( .The food was another matter. We started with hot and sour sweet corn soup and tomato, spinach and egg drop soup, both were good, though a tad bland and needed seasoning.
Drinks: Long Island Iced Tea was decent. The mocktails are good, the best of the lot being Italian Cmooch which has a ginger flavour combined with coke which gives it a bitter sweet tang along with brown sugar. There was a started which employed red chillies which was phenomenal. The dimsums left a lot to be desired and you can get momo's right outside fortune cookie at 35 bucks a plate as against the 350 here for 6 pathetic pieces. The hakka noodles and tomato and mushroom fried rice were good. The vegetable manchurian was just average. The brocolli, spinach and vegetables in a black bean base was about average. The dessert of date pancakes with Vanilla Ice Cream was good, but I could determine a hint of fish in the fried pancakes which was a slight turn off. The service was extremely fast and prompt even though the restaurant was packed, but I don't expect to ask for chopsticks and a knife in a fine dining restaurant and definitely expect clean linen!
