The first impression of this Chinese restaurant is of a modern sleek design befitting the upgraded surroundings of the Westfield Doncaster shopping centre. You are greeted by Kwan-Di the God of Business and ushered by attentive wait-staff to the best tables in the house. Being a Thursday night, we got a window seat. Too bad the reflections from the glass meant that the view of Box Hill and North Balwyn weren't quite visible.
We were a bit worried when all the other tables were Caucasian, not a single Asian table. Worried that the food was aimed primarily at the entree, main, dessert crowd, we breathed a sigh of relief at the surprisingly Hongkong-Cantonese menu, and the trickle of Asian families coming late to dinner.
The food was quite good in general, if a bit on the salty side, which is typical of food in Hongkong. The serves were also surprisingly large given the prices of the average dish hovering just below the AUD20 mark. Luxurious dishes can also be had at "market prices". You could even have a AUD4200 bottle of Château Pétrus or Château Le Pin should you decide to splurge!
We also learnt that they do not take bookings for yumcha, and judging by the number of tables, they must be popular then!
