    Went for Resturant Week and it was a lovely treat. Food and ambiance was great. The service was Top Shelf. They were gracious, professional and friendly. I recently had some hearing loss and they put us in a private dining room. I would definitely return for a special occasion.

    My wife and I were so excited to try this restaurant for the first time. We couldn’t have been more disappointed. Starting with their signature lychee martinis, probably the worst we’ve ever had. Too sweet, not an once of alcohol, and not cold. We asked the waiter for recommendations, so we ordered their chicken satay which were served luke warm, along with the duck cilantro dumplings. Our appetizer plates were not cleared off our table for quite some time. And we had finished our drinks, our empty glasses were not cleared nor were we asked for another round of cocktails. For dinner I ordered the drunken sea bass, it was disgusting for lack of a better word. The fish was soggy and the sauce was basically syrup. My wife ordered the chicken lettuce wraps as a safe choice, nothing special. Even through dinner not once did our waiter ask us for another round of drinks or even how our meals were. We barely ate our dinner as we were so disappointed and turned off. We couldn’t ask for our bill soon enough, paid and left immediately. Total disappointment for such a highly hyped up restaurant. We will absolutely not be going back and we not recommend this place. You’re better off going to your local Chinese food place.

    Wow, what happened to this place? Just awful food. I used to love the food but it has gone downhill! Terrible Chinese food and so expensive! Next time I will only go to Mr. Chow’s in Tribeca. So sad to have wasted $250 on Chinese food for 2 people.

    It’s a trendy-ish restaurant, so good if you’re looking for the “clubbing” vibe. The food was so-so; not bad, but not very different from more basic Chinese restaurants. Service was good and attentive, I just wasn’t into the food or the aggressively loud music.

    The food is overrated with the exception of a few. I came to this restaurant thinking I’d be wow’d by the impression of class and cuisine they were offering at this classy dining level. I want to say I was not impressed and even further to say I’ve had better else where for more affordable prices. I will say the Sweet & Sour Chicken and the Nine Season Prawn were the best out of our group’s selection but everything else was merely mediocre and mundane. The classy experience was nice but the server didn’t make it any extra enlightening or desirable with his service. He was bland (like some of the food) straight-nosed and to the point. Not a enjoyable experience to spice up the ambiance of the place. Not sure if it’s a training thing but no smiles seem dull to me. Gratuity is already included in the parties check of 4 or more so maybe he felt he didn’t have to put extra pizazz in his service but it would’ve been nice. I didn’t have the opportunity try everything but the duck Spring rolls were disappointing and bland. The only thing that gave it flavor was the molasses like sauce it came with. The calamari was bland as well no flavor, the spicy sauce didn’t even compliment well. The chicken noodles, TASTELESS! No flavor, just dry. I was certainly indifferent about the food if it weren’t for the tasty dishes we had I would’ve given lesser stars.

    We took advantage of the restaurant week menu with some add ons. Everything was great except that they were out of the wi e we chose with the only other option a bottle that was nearly double in price. maybe some wine pricing in a moderate level would be a a good idea.
