To begin with as part of the ‘return of the Noble House experience’ the Chinese influence is reflected with the five Nobles Fu (for prosperity), Lu (for wealth), Shou (for Health), Sui Sing (for Long Life) and Mei Lei (Lord Buddha for Eternal Bliss) that are placed in Woks to add to the ambience, which anyways gives a remarkable view of the city from the 28th Floor.
To start with the ‘onion cake’ is highly recommended – decadent to the core. The Dim Sums here are a must try, they are a good representation of the quality that the kitchen upkeeps. Most dim sum dishes indeed revolve around the usual ingredients - pork and seafood, especially prawns, however it is the creative use of these ingredients by the chef and his team that lends the element of surprise, breaks the taste and beckons you to try more. The menu also includes the old time favourites like ‘chilli chicken’ and ‘Manchurian’ (my mother loved her Manchurian with Hakka noodles). The menu has it all, from the Signature Noble House Steam Boat Soup to sumptuous Dragon Boat Dim Sum Platter, Cauliflower in Garlic Butter Sauce and desserts like Date Pancakes with Ice Cream and Creme Caramel. So if you want to bring back memories….a visit is a must for ‘old times sake’!
