Tried a few new items they recommended and was not disappointed. Not a lot of people there so it was almost like a private dinner but never felt like staff was standing over us.

Dinner in this restaurant may have been the highlight of my stay at Grand Velas - so we went twice! Be warned, men do need to wear slacks, so don't show up in shorts. Other than that, our experiences were near perfect. Chef Issac literally created 3 course dinners for me, to accommodate a complicated list of food intolerances/allergies, and... More

It was hard to find anything on the kids or adult menu for the kids - like plain white rice, sesame beef, orange chicken, etc.

The food is OK but too many fried and unhealthy dishes. The service is average, some good but also bad and uninterested waiters. In addition, they kick you out before they close by starting to clean up the tables and floors in front of you.

But small portions - feel free to order lots! I would particuarly recommend the Miso soup, the Dim Sum appetizer and the tuna and duck main courses.

Having enjoyed many meals on the Grand Velas property, we thought we should try the Sen Lin. There were 6 of us and the food was definitely hit or miss. Several of the meals included cream cheese which just seemed odd. No one enjoyed the miso soup. My husband's udon meal (Kai Sen Udon) was odd - he felt like... More

The Asian restaurant at Grand Velas, We had 8pm reservations and we're seated immediately, the restaurant had 2 other couples besides us. We started with 2 different Amuse-bouche which were yummy. Glasses of Cabernet then the appitizers of octopus, tuna, noodle & miso soup and dim sum, all were good but not great. For dinner the beef dish and the... More

This is not typical American Asian food. Although there are some Asian dishes most are Asian infused.
