I liked the wonton soup, and had the crispy sweet beef. Sorbet for dessert. Very good energy, and interesting design. Will definitely come again."

And Caro W. added: "This place is brand new, and I was intrigued by the owners' reputation for other notable restaurants such as Philippe and Jue Lan. The highlights of my meal were the chicken satay and the soup dumplings."
