Contemporary Chinese Cuisine? what does that mean? Its hard to grasp until you get here. I really cannot describe the idea...its FAR from your typical Chinese seafood restaurant, yet its still authentic unlike PF Chang's, and not pretentious without substance like Also.
All the dishes I had in my tasting menu was excellent. Its so nice to enjoy Chinese food that is prepared so delicately, and with the utmost attention to detail.
If you enjoy multi course meals, in a westernized structure, with quality ingredients...then the food here is for you.
Service here is excellent as well. The servers were always there at the right time...it felt more like Le Crocodile than a chinese restaurant in terms of service. All dishes were introduced with their respective ingredients, and all beverages were always kept topped up. It also helps that a couple of cute girls work here as well :)
The restaurant itself is in a bit awkward place, but it only adds to the ambiance...being a restaurant that strays from the norm, I can see why their location strays from the strip mall that is No3rd.
Don't think of what it is, just show up, be hungry, enjoy the great service and a nice bottle of wine and I'm sure you will leave happy.
