Chinjabi lovers, beware. This is the real thing & u may not like some of it as much. Those who have developed a taste for the real thing will however have a ball of a time.
The Restaurant looks like any other high end restaurant I have come across in Hongkong & China. The restaurant with full Glass walls, being located in a Highrise enables u to enjoy the view of the city while dining. Ambience is nice & enjoyable.
The staff seems to have been a major issue when the restaurant started – as I have been told by some friends. However, on the two anonymous visits (I did not divulge my identity) to this place, I had a good experience on this front. In fact the guy named Suneil who served us on both the occasions, was extraordinarily good at his job. He was very well versed with the products on offer & made some good suggestions that enlivened our dining experience. In absence of Suneil, another guy popped in for 5 minutes & he was surely a disaster. So, I guess staff training still needs to b prioritized by the Management.
The food & overall experience was so memorable that we returned back for some more in a short span of 10 days.

We were recommended this place by a friend from Boston. The soft & non chewy scallops r to die for & so is the lobster. The Lobster was recommended by another friend. The crab cake was the best I had in my whole life & was totally different from all other versions I have had. Three fish fillets were delicious & the sea weed ‘sides’ was very curious & cool. The otherwise mundane onion rings also were also having a unique texture & taste. Even an hour after having the food, I feel the sense of fulfillment expressed by my taste buddies.
