Since it's a new restaurant so I thought I'll give it a try. Although the location is good, the restaurant decor was too dark for my liking. We ordered several dishes for lunch to try but was rather disappointing. The crispy eel turned out to be hard and chewy while the smoked fish was dry. The Shanghai wonton was also tasteless. The only good dish was the crispy 'siu loong bao' while the drunken chicken was only so so... I definitely think there are better Shanghai restaurant in town. Wish they would focus on the food rather than the decor.

Went there with man colleague for a working lunch. It was actually quite disappointing. The food itself is mediocre but the service was really poor which was shocking to me. They served us wrong dishes 3 times while we only ordered 5 dishes.

Not return at all.

Is the time of the year, Chinese New Year! When you think of lunar year, the first activity that you can think of is the temporary Flower Market and the biggest one in Hong Kong would be held at Victoria Park. Therefore, my colleagues and I decided to go to Causeway Bay for dinner and then walk around the market. This newly opened Shanghainese restaurant locates at Lee Garden and it was pretty full on that night. The decoration is quite modern and classy, you won’t feel like you are at the Chinese restaurant right now.

Couple of appetizers have been served to the table, first will be the Five-Spiced Duck Tongue. The duck tongue might seem and sound gross for foreigners, but it is very common in Chinese dishes. Five spices marinated duck tongue is flavorful and al dente, hence I just keep eating one after one lol.

The second appetizer is Braised Beef with Aged Mandarin Peel, the diced beef was marinated in the dry aged mandarin peel’s broth. The beef cubes are soft and tender, that hint of fruity mandarin flavor is totally appealing.

Up next is the Smoked Soft-Boiled Eggs with Black Truffle Pearl, it was being served with a glass cover and you are able to see the smoke inside. Once the server removed the cover, you can smell a smoky sense from the mist. The soft-boiled eggs carried a strong smoky taste and it got a niche of pepper on the surface, I can say this is one of the best smoked eggs in Hong Kong.

The common eel dish would be the Japanese grilled eel, yet this Honey Glazed Crispy Eel is completely different and will amaze you. The deep fried eel was coated by the sticky and sweet honey, its crunchy texture is a bit similar to eating popcorn.

Down to the main course, there is no doubt that this Deep-Fried Braised Mutton Brisket with Homemade Vinegar Sauce is my favorite among all. If you love the unique taste of the lamb, this is the dish that you cannot be missed. The meat is tender and juicy and its skin is absolutely crispy, also there are some edible soft bones as well, fantastic texture. The whole dish is rather oily, thus is good to eat with the special vinegar sauce to neutralize it.

Another main course would be from the sea, Fried Whole Mandarin Fish in Brown Sauce. Cut some marks on the fish, next coat the fish with batter and deep-fried it, then the fish will end up like a pine cone with layers. After that, pour the sweet and sour sauce over the deep-fried fish. It is quite crunchy, nevertheless it is slightly floury, maybe they coated with too much batter.

With a nice ambience, courteous staff, and a respectable menu, one would expect at least decent cooking and hope for a good meal. Regrettably, it was not the case. The sweet and sour baby back ribs were deep-fried so excessively that the bones crumbled in our mouths. Pretty messy. The braised beef with aged orange peel was way overcooked and those small beef cubes were tough to chew. Two tables next ours had the same dish and, just like us, left many of those beef cubes untouched. Our main courses were unremarkable. For example, the river shrimps didn't have much shrimp favor, as if they were soaked in water for too long. We sincerely hope that the kitchen finds its footing soon to complement the restaurant's nice setting and helpful staff.
