Fodor's Review

This eatery has completely rethought Asian cuisine, taking Chinese, Malaysian, and Thai cooking in new directions. Sauces are fragrant and spicy, but never overpowering. The specialty of the house is dim sum, prepared by a chef who knows his dumplings. The wontons are fresh and crisp, with delicious combinations of crab, shrimp, and chicken peeking through the almost transparent pastry. But leave room for the main dishes, especially the tiger prawns and scallops in a sauce made from dried shrimp and fish. Familiar dishes like beef in black bean sauce are astonishingly delicate and aromatic. The vegetarian menu is adventurous, too. There are also capitivating cocktails.
