A big group of us had a lunch reservation. I was late and was shown directly to our table on the lower of the three floors of the restaurant. The glass floor and the bottom of the stairs is quite cools, as is the view, despite still being quite boxed in by other skyscrapers.
Our waiter said they had been open for two weeks, which is strange because it was still a construction site when we poked our heads in the week before. In any case, the food would make the impression they are still looking for a real chef.
The first thing I noticed is my knees hitting the table, which turned out to be an extendable folding table:
So we had to eat thigh-length away from the table, what a pain! The napkins in our laps came in very handy...
Western Lunch Menu
Poor Pan-fried garoupa with mango-cilantro salsa
The fish was overcooked, the salsa bland and mismatched. A friend had the Angel Hair pasta with shrimp and did not enjoy it either.
The tiramisu lacked any coffee flavour just to mention the obvious; bad bad bad.
Chinese Lunch Menu
Why does such an upscale establishment have to mention about MSG and artificial flavouring? Perhaps as an excuse for the terrible dim sum. They only had a handful of different dim sum available for their "All-You-Want", the low variety and low quality really makes you loose your appetite fast.
Drinks... there are only two types of tea: Pu Er and Iron Buddha.
The washroom on this floor was interesting. The sinks are shared between men and women, with some cubicles designated male, others female. There is a separate ante room with urinals.
The bathroom and the view from the balcony made the visit not a total waste, but we still won't be back.
