Traditional Chinese atmosphere is everywhere – one of the halls has an imperial throne, on which you can sit and feel very royal.

This pleasure is not cheap, but worth it. The fancy dishes include shark fin soup, turtle soup, drunken shrimp, lobster salad, a hundred-year-old egg, swallow's nest and others.
