A spicy adventure awaits diners at Dong Lai Shun, which offers excellent Beijing and Huaiyang cuisines. Set in the basement of The Royal Garden, the contemporary décor has traditional Chinese elements such as a marble water fountain, red walls and modern lantern lights carved with traditional floral motifs.

A must-try dish is the deliciously tender Peking duck with crispy skin wrapped in thin steamed pancakes. Another highlight is the mapo tofu, where the silken tofu is accompanied by minced pork and fiery hot chillies, or the Inner Mongolian mutton hot pot for the winter months. The yellow croaker fish cooked in yellow wine sauce is a Huaiyang must-try dish.
