Tried here for dinner with the family during the weekend. The foods are exquisite and tasty. Although it may be a bit pricey but the amount of food is big (I ordered a small egg fried rice for 2 kids but it is sufficient for 4 person). Overall it is a good and nice area to go for to eat.

Big restaurant with luxurious setting suitable for family or business lunch or dinner. We ordered crab soup, fried seafood noodle, mushroom garlic tofu and crispy chinese pancake. All of them were good. However, the staff should have a better product knowledge. I had to ask to 3 waiters before getting an explanation of what crispy chinese pancake was.

Good dim sum, Chinese dishes are good too.....but they don't serve pork as it a halal restaurant. Overall food is good, price is on the higher end of the spectrum. Service is generally okay....
