A vibrant Asian eatery styled on an outdoor market and a menu packed withOriental favourites. Walls covered in spices and reams of fabric in shades of red, and an open kitchen alive with the sounds of sizzling and steaming sets the scene for an ecle ctic Asian dining experience. Adding to the ambiance ischef  stretching out lengths of handmade noodles right in front of you as if it was the easiest thing in the world. Take a seat near the window to enjoy the view over the canal and ease into the evening with a jasmine-infused bubbly cocktail. The menu features 15 varieties of dim sum – we’d steer you in the direction of the boldly flavoured tom yum dumplings with the fiery lemon grass and chilli dipping sauce, and the succulent beef foie gras pan-fried dumplings. For mains the honey glazed cod is a must with the sweet caramelised exterior giving way to beautiful chunks of white fish. Round off your meal with the mango tatin – a tropical take on the French tart – served with tea-infused ice cream and clotted cream.
