Well, other than the fact that Kowloon Bay is hardly a culinary capital by any definition, I must say the restaurant’s location is not the most convenient of all. But once I arrived, I was impressed with the huge space it has and how lavish it is being used, with the grand entrance leading up to the lobby with white marble flooring then through the corridor lined with cabinet filled with fine wines and into the dining area with tables well-spaced from one another. In this town where space is such a premium, it certainly helps when the restaurant is located slightly off the beaten track, and the owner also owns the entire office building it is in.
