The oyster omelette was excellent, with sweet, plump and soft oysters that were larger than usual
The price tag ... means that it's more of a special-occasion place, but it's definitely not stuffy
Most of the pasta dishes (other than the one we ordered) are available in full- or half-portions
Warm poached prawns with vanilla olive oil and coriander yogurt was beautiful.
Steamed dried abalone with minced pork meat was a nice, modern presentation of gee yuk beng
Poached fish in hot chilli oil looked intimidatingly spicy but the warm, oily broth was actually very well balanced
Sizzling beef with cumin flavour was also very good, with tender meat and well-balanced spices
Vegetarian sushi — with ingredients such as eggplant, red pepper and mashed pumpkin in place of fish and sea urchin — was whimsical
Yuba with dashi gelee was an excellent starter. It was cool and delicious
