The menu at this longtime fusion favorite garners universal praise for its innovative mix of Asian and Western flavors against a backdrop of artifacts from Maoist China. Menu standouts include the sesame-crusted salmon with cinnamon-infused soy, and pork chops with red dates, ginseng, and honey. Finish with a delicious dessert, such as cinnamon–and–star anise crème brûlée. Watch for the special deals, such as the two-course lunch and two-course early-bird dinner,
each for $38.50, and lunch and dinner banquets from A$58 for seven courses. The service and wine list are outstanding, and you're welcome to bring your own bottle as well.
