The overall impression of this establishment, set in the Lisboa hotel is pretty much on exactly the same lines of Lung King Heen.  It was great to get a quick table here to simply have a few nibbles in the evening as it is a 3 Michelin starred venue, however, on exactly the same principles, the menu was reasonable but the actual products failed to show anything special at all.  Maybe we were unlucky in our choices in spite of consulting the head waiter on this.  Dissapointing for the accolade.

It certainly was refined and well prepared and presented, however the only aspects that were absolutely lovely were the pork bites and the chicken, but these are easy victories as the flavours are automatically pleasing from the deep fried and sweet nature.  In actual fact, I could actually see some of these dishes being served as easily in a Royal China in London, less the intricate designs of the amuse bouche and signature dessert.

It clearly was not a displeasure, but again, I simply struggled to see why this had such high accolade and I thought the desserts were wholly average in flavour.  They could of course be absolutely of the highest quality to the desserts that they resembled; regrettably these flavours are just not my kind of special in any way.
