Loved the food, really nice despite how busy it was with a large number of tables. Book in advance as it's always busy. Toilets are an experience on their own

Spent a night there in november. Great vibe and good service. Although the placed was packed we never felt unattended or waiting. Food quality is top and still has what it takes to hold its name next to all those new copies of places

This was my second time here. Food quality is still very good - had lobster dim-sum,sea bass and a mango based dessert- and so it is the wine list (first 20 mins was all about wine-chatting with the waiter..nice) Deco is still impressive. Everywhere. Including...More

Food was delivered over a long period of time, and was fabulous. Each course was explained and there was no rush which meant the quantity of food was easily coped with. Can’t recommend that and staff highly enough.

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
