7th Floor Westgate Mall
Ordered an array of dishes once getting through the menu. Was uber impressed that the rice came out from the word go and not as the last dish! Sizzling too and very tasty. Ordered a Peking duck and am totally confused by how you ensure you get duck MEAT not just skin (which is a pet peeve). Anyway it was tasty and was plated by one of the wait staff which was a nice touch. A few dumplings, beef with garlic dish, and sweet and sour pork. All tasty although had hoped for more 'dim sum' options!

Food now mediocre at best. Environment overall getting more & more run down. Seems this once great place, opened by yet another "top international acclaimed chef" has been put on autopilot.
Staff are great kids, seemed to be eager, a redeeming factor to the whole experience, but can see & feel an obvious lack of direction & attention to detail that was before always present.
With a new western style restaurant seeminly opening every other day & the City Diner rumors all about town, would suggest that -someone- get back to basics with that extra time now on his/her hands. And psst...hygiene practices. She has seen better days

it's very easy.
a friend who owns a pizzeria in Brazil gave us 2 pizza pan sheet , a kind of iron net that makes the pizza very
crispy cause it bakes completely well.

Place was packed, had the Chicken Satays, Beef Curry, Tom Yum soup with a couple of Singha's. Good food and good value, place is a bugger to find without the right info though.

Newly opened japanese at Xintiandi. Sat at bar looking into open kitchen, like at T8. Food was good but pricey, good bar upstairs, no customers as yet.
Worth going just to check out the hostess at the top of the first flight of stairs.

As for the dessert, it was superb! We tried a molten chocolate cake with a bit of blue cheese in the center. Sounds disgusting, but it turned out to be a delight. Then a cream brulee that was spoon licking good! The tiramisu was generously portioned and the perfect texture. One of the cakes, I don't remember which, came encased in a beautiful sugar flute that we had to crack open to access the sweets inside. A very nice touch.
I highly recommend this for a cool dessert experience, and it's a definite hot stop to take friends or dates for something memorable. Hope they can get the music figured out soon!
