My second visit at the restaurant, thinking it would be different. Staff were great as always. But food still is average and unusual serving of uncooked veggie leaves with a bunch of stalks. Maybe have a taste review and suggest set meals that compliment each other. Not sure if I would go for a third visit.

Very smart service. Exceptional delivery of hospitality, putting other celebrated venue to shame.

Sometimes its the food you remember or maybe its the service but with this place its both plus more! The service was friendly, engaging and helpful while the food was clearly prepared with precision and great taste. And it was all accompanied with some great wines. We had a great night and will definitively be returning.

A wonderful experience all round for Kim's birthday. We chose and enjoyed the tasting menu. The food, wine and service were all exemplary. It had been far too long since we'd been here; it won't be so long before our next visit.

My husband and I went to Chairman and Yip for his birthday. We had an excellent time. We ordered the chef's tasting menu and it was divine. The food was faultless and service was impeccable. Highly recommended.
Thanks so much Catherine, we are so pleased that to hear that you enjoyed your special birthday dinner with us. Hope to see you again soon.
