If your budget can stretch enough to include this magnificent restaurant the you absolutely should go there, the food is incredibly delicious. It offers a buffet where you can take a look at their every special dish right in the middle of their kitchen, authentic enough you can smell it and actually taste it.

We ate our main dishes family style so got to share everything we ordered. The theme of first class ingredients perfectly prepared and cooked ran through the whole meal. Service was pleasant and unfussy,... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with exceptional service. The food ranged from good to excellent. We had several dim sum and a few main courses. The dim sum were unusual; they were fine, but not as good as in our local dim sum restaurant in California.

Once you enter the restaurant, you'd be astonished in the intricate and classy Asian decor. We were greeted by smiles of the staff. Their dim sum and Peking Duck are a must! This restaurant, by far is the best Chinese food I've tried. We've tried their dinner before and came the last time for brunch. We're not disappointed! It was... More

The place is nice and nicely decorated for Christmas with an Asian taste. Waitresses inefficient over communicating around tables and orders. I was not impressed with the unsmooth experience. Food was good. Dim sum was excellent. Seafood variety stands out. Complimentary starter and fruits at the end was a nice gesture.

Reviews and posted photos are misleading, being Asian I was not impressed with the Friday brunch, average food quality, extremely poor dessert and shocking for a hotel of this category and reputation to present such a poor set up of the buffet in the actual 'kitchen'
