Overall the food and service was really good. The only thing is the cleanliness as I noticed there were many fruit flies flying around the restaurant. One fell into my glass of wine which was very disturbing. Although the server took it off our bill, but it made me wonder about the cleanliness inside the kitchen as well.

Tucked away in the corner of Richmond near the airport, the restaurant itself was not crowded at all on a Friday night (even though the hotel lobby was quite busy.) The food did not justify the price point, however. The sous vide pork was overcooked and was not tender at all, but the pork belly was nicely done. Everything on the Salmon dish was too salty. The dessert was alright but not to a point that changed our minds about the place.

Extremely friendly waitress who went above and beyond as she prepared us a special dessert as we were celebrating our anniversary. Even the general manager stopped by to congratulate us. Food was quite tasty and serving amount was generous. We ordered the spicy Korean wings as an appetizer and got 13 pieces. Definitely wasn't expecting that much. Quiet and off the beat location so a great hidden gem, although the restaurant itself isn't very large.

We had ordered the duck prosciutto, the halibut with the green curry sauce and the lamb.

The prosciutto was good paired with the arugula and goat cheese. The halibut was the star of our meal. It was prepared perfectly and wasn't overdone at all. We really enjoyed the sauce paired with the sticky rice. The lamb was good but like another reviewer said the fat could've been rendered further.

Service was a bit slow, likely because there was a bigger party that got seated after us. Overall though it wasnt very busy or nosy. Would return again for a date night.

Compared to other restaurants in Richmond this restaurant is off the main stretch of No. 3 Road, not well advertised and located at the back of the main floor of the Wall Centre Airport. Its certainly small at 67 seats but once you are settled in its a nice atmosphere where you can have a quiet conversation and wind-down.
We tried the tuna carppaccio and duck prosciutto for appetizers, both well-presented and tastefully prepared. Pease note that bread or a bread basket is not complimentary or provided.
Like other reviewers we opted for the halibut and lamb chops for our mains. They did not disappoint and unlike some other reviewers we found the entrée portions to be generous for the price. The halibut was slightly over cooked but came with sticky rice that had a nice coconut aroma and infused with chunks of mango. It was an interesting touch to see the sticky rice served in a separate bowl from the halibut entrée. The 2 lamb chops were generous cuts cooked to medium rare and served with hotel quality veggies and buttery smooth whipped potatoes.
While this was not the most memorable dinner the execution was solid and the service pace friendly but not swift. Overall, the entrees are the stars of this establishment. We opted a couple of coffees, 1 soft drink, 2 appetizers and 2 mains. Final tab including tax was about $117.

A good place and it will be free parkibg when go ask for the parking pass at the counter. But don't understand why would the restaurant will only have one waiter for the whole evening time to serve the whole restaurant. Actually we can leave restaurant more early then we expect. We finish food around 8:30 but can't leave until 9:30pm because the waiter always busy that he can't get out bill. Also, I would like to said the main dishes is good and worth for the price but not the appetitsor.

Restaurant wasn't busy, was only table at the time (6:30p on Wednesday); food was alright but not memorable- wife had the lamb dish but the fat was not rendered enough, hence was tough to cut and eat. Seafood linguine was ok.
