The restaurant is built beautifully with wide arches and a very open floor plan. The exposed brick, rugged walls, the woodwork and the plush furniture, gives the place a modern farmhouse kind of vibe. The place is ideal for big family lunches, parties and a date with that special person.
The interiors are elegant, yet they are nothing compared to the wonderful food that is served here.
The restaurant is the dreamchild of Chinese-Canadian chef Boo Kwang Kim, who has created a restaurant that aptly represents the phrase “East meets West”. The restaurant is known for its sophisticated seafood dishes which include freshwater specialities such as fish, prawn, mud crab and lobster.
Almost anything you order here will satiate your hunger and satisfy those taste buds, yet there are a few things here that we absolutely adore. The pan seared char siu pulled pork buns, the (gluten free) lobster thermidor, lobster pot stickers, gluten free wild mushroom truffle pappardelle, fajita bastian bowl and the steamed organic Norwegian bowl are few of our favourites.
You can also opt for the healthy Bodhi bowls, the green curry and thai dye, blew us away. They are not just healthy but a beautiful combination of flavours ready to explore in your mouth.
And if you think that’s about it, well it isn’t.
You can also order a ton of world’s most famous market specialities here, the crispy spiced salt chicken, edamame hummus, tempura soft shell crab and roasted tomato roll, and silken tofu with sesame peanut sauce and chili oil are few from the amazing selection.
Not just that, you can also drink your face off, at any of the three bars at the property. We are in love with the tiki bar and its tropical drinks, they are absolutely perfect for battling the scorching summer.
The restaurant also serves some amazing desserts and each one of them is made with what can only be called mastery and precision. You will not regret a penny spent here, especially when you look at the beautifully plated dishes roll down to your table. Do try the slice cakes, and the cheesecakes, they will round off any meal and make your tummy super happy.
