No one has a bad thing to say about this smart expat favourite and rightly so, as it has never let its standards dip over the years. Meat dishes start at ¥50 for the beef and dough strips (yóutiáo) , and the plentiful eel, shrimp and squid dishes are around twice that. Other tempting fare includes the roast duck and braised pork. The pan-fried sticky rice and sweet bean paste (from the dim-sum menu) makes a good dessert. It’s also worth ordering the eight-fragrance tea just to watch it served spectacularly out of 60cm-long spouts. Reserve.
