The decor is fairly traditional with slight modern twists. The tea cups are rather interesting, different to your average Chinese restaurant, but not dis-similar to a tea-house. The leaves are in each individual’s tea cup, the water is poured, you leave it in there for a while to brew, then take the tea leaves out. No common table pots of tea here.

All the food was of high quality and standard. We ordered:

  • Shanghai Styled Smoked Fish
  • Crispy fish skin coated with salted egg yolk
  • Malaysian Chicken Curry
  • Braised beancurd brew
  • Eggplant and pork hotpot
  • Deep fried prawns with salted egg yolk
  • Dessert tasting plate

I really loved all the food, delicate and well cooked. My favourite dishes were the crispy fish skin coated with salted egg (Tung Lok Seafood Resturant still ranks as the no. 1 for this dish, but Waitan still does a superb job), the braised beancurd brew, and the deep fried prawns with salted egg yolk. (The prawns were just so fresh, plump and succulent. It was delicious.)
