Dim sums are served for lunch and definitely what everybody orders. Eventhough I became a fan of such cuisine in the last couple years I have to tell you how delicious this is. There are about 14 types to choose from including; Barbecued pork buns, deep-fried or steamed sweet cream buns, deep-fried smashed taro balls, shrimp dumplings and sticky rice dumplings. There are special combination rolls in soy sauce such as steamed fresh shrimp dumplings of siu mai and harkao - which are fantastic. Two of my favorites are the crab legs in curry sauce and the minced prawn and crab meat dumplings.
Dinner starts with a selection of appetizers that could easily become a meal. The list includes assorted hot hors doeuvres, a fantastic emperor's salad, steamed chicken with Chinese wine (served cold), bbq'd pork & duck, roast Peking duck (whole), bbq'd suckling pig (whole), and deep-fried shrimp rolls in rice paper.
The soup selection includes about 15 choices of the most popoular sharks fin varieties, along with monk jumped over the wall, and bird's nests stuffed in bamboo piths.
If you still have room to enjoy any of the main courses, the choices are scrumptious. There is braised fresh abalone or crab claws in oyster sauce while the sauteed crystal rrawns in salad sauce are great. You may also select from fried pigeon with Cantonese vegetables, fillet mignon in black pepper sauce or stir-fried crab in curry sauce. Different cooking methods are offered for Fish; such as steamed in soy sauce, chilli sauce, prune sauce, preserved bean sauce or garlic; deep-fried with garlic or soy sauce and more. Orders come in different sizes of small, medium and large, and even per person.
Desserts are interesting, as they include snow frog gelatin and snow fungus in crystal sugar, various birdโs nest preparations and sesame seed dumplings in ginger sauce. The selection of wines come from France, America, Italy, Australia, Thailand, Germany and Chile, and range from 400 to 11,000 baht per bottle.
