Lonely Planet review
The fanciest restaurant in Belgrano’s Chinatown is this pretty spot, which cooks up creative Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. Order the shrimp in coconut milk, mixed-mushroom-and-veggie stir-fry or beef curry with tomatoes. The dining area is a slick, red lounge with moody music, and for extra quirkiness there’s an Asian art gallery (open 1pm to 7pm) upstairs and a bonsai ‘deck’ garden. Also open in the afternoon for tea service.
