On our first visit we had the duck, the tuna tar tar, rock shrimp tempura, the shrimp shumai, and the mixed Chinese vegetables in garlic sauce. I was very surprised when I liked all of these dishes. My father was a chef of Singapore cuisine, so normally I find something wrong with the Asian restaurants in Charleston. This is honestly the first Asian duck dish that I have liked among all the Asian restaurants in Charleston, and I have looked for a long time for good duck.
We came back a second time to try the sushi. We had the Black Angel Roll and the Sweetie roll. Both were beautifully presented, especially the sweetie roll. The 8 pieces were shaped into hearts 4 hearts (two pieces per heart), and these hearts were flanked by a small bridge fashioned out of twigs and adorned with a small flower and leafy greens. We took a picture of it, because it was really pretty.
One warning to all of you authentic Chinese food fans. This is more of a bistro than an authentic Chinese food restaurant that you'd find in a Chinatown. So, yes, it will cost more.
We will definitely keep coming back.
Stunning! – I know that the restaurant has not opened yet, but i was lucky enough to be invited to a pre-opening. First off, i would like to say that the architecture inside is simply beautiful. The atmosphere is peaceful and the food is fairly priced. I can't wait for them to open so i can try all their dishes.
