This stalwart’s elegant Eastern-style interiors make for a perfect backdrop for executive Chinese chef Liu Hai Ching’s award-winning Cantonese fare. With more than 20 years of experience, Liu showcases his mastery of the cuisine, starting with a selection of rich and delicate soups, such as the double-boiled soup with assorted seafood that’s brimming with scallops, shrimp and conpoy, and artfully presented in a hollowed-out golden baby pumpkin. A clear winner in our book is the smoked chicken with jasmine tea leaves, with its tender meat basted in a distinct tea-flavoured soy sauce. Also highly recommended is the dish of wok-fried crocodile meat with asparagus that’s paired with an addictive spicy sauce—a must-try for adventurous gourmands.

Liu and his culinary team are able to craft off-menu items to cater to various dietary restrictions, and there are numerous vegetarian and gluten-free options readily available on the regular menu.
