We had lunch at the Summer Pavilion in March 2017 - the whole experience was simply impressive. There was an, at first, bewildering array of menu options but these were, in fact very well organised and gave us an excellent selection of options. While its not our normal practice to order other than a la carte, we ended up choosing the Chef's Tasting Menu and we were richly rewarded for placing our trust in the Chef. Each dish was beautifully presented and gave us delicious and interesting flavours, each balanced perfectly with its prime ingredient. This menu - impossible to give it justice in a short description - included barbecued scallop, pan fried prawns, a clam soup, sautéed lamb loin, pan fried lobster, abalone and a particularly delicious green tea pudding dessert. We didn't choose the optional wine matching with this set menu, rather preferring to accompany the whole meal with a well-matched, dry and savoury Provence rose. This style of wine is all too often neglected as an amazing match with very high quality Asian dishes and it worked wonderfully with every dish. The service was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive and, as a result, perfectly timed throughout. Located in the Ritz-Carlton hotel, the Summer Pavilion has a particularly elegant ambience and is clearly aimed at the high end of the market - and it delivers both exceptional value for money and a truly enjoyable experience.
