We went there for the 1st time 2 days ago, tables were all full, our table was probably the last table.
Maybe because it was busy, services were really not the best, they were rather slow but friendly.
We started with the cheese tofu, very smooth and well balanced taste with a drizzle of honey on top. Nice and refreshing.
Then we also has chicken wings, it was okay, nothing too special. Ribs, again, nothing too special but it tasted good.
Miso glazed sablefish with sweet potato puree was really charming and their pork hot pot was really yummy too!
Tiger prawns mayo were well cooked good sized king prawns.
we ended off with the tofu cheese cake, it was good but too similar with the cheese tofu appie.
For 2 people it came to about $65 with no alcohol.... not too bad is it?! Will definitely be back again.

We have been there 2 times and I keep on wanting more!
Food quality is very solid and taste of food is refined and skillfully mastered.
For both occasions we went for the prix fix menu before 6pm, $38 per person for 3 delicious courses is definitely well worth it. Although i do think regular menu is kinda pricey for what u get.
Their prix fix menu changes periodically and they make use of seasonal produce.
Duck pate is always good, I have ordered the organic pork twice because I found it so tasty, especially with the maple glazed turnips, my significant other usually has the fish with clams for entree, and he seemed to be happy with that.
The dessert chocolate bar was just dreamy!
Overall food is really good at that price, service was not too bad for us, but that could because we've always went there early when it was not busy.
Will definitely go back!!

Going out on a snowy rainy day, we didn't have much choice when heading out downtown. The restaurant was 3/4 full when we went in.
Good service throughout, waitress was very attentive and polite.
Menu is definitely on the pricey side, so we expected good standards.
We've ordered spare ribs, beef meat balls, and couple of standard dishes. Generally we were both disappointed.
Shrimp dumpling pastry was too thick, flavour was fairly lacking for our special order chow mein, rest of the dishes we had were pretty so-so. Deep fried banana and red bean paste was good even though it is on the oily side.
All in all, for 2 of us the bill came to $50. We thought, for the same value, Sea Harbour in Richmond, Kirin or Sun Sui Wah on Main Street can do way better job.
