Did you ever go to a place and recognize everything in it is from Ikea? We have, and this is definitely not one of those places. It looked as if they had everything custom-made down to the servers, made-to-order, tin wait station. This place is original to say the least. We luckily got there at just before noon when the afternoon rush hour hit, so we got a great seat by the window. Let's move on to the food while you're hungry. We got Vietnamese Rolls 越南米卷 (12RMB) which were a bit bland as they should be with a dollop of peanut butter sauce. The Creamy Cheese Baked Pumpkins 奶油芝士焗南瓜 (18RMB) were done to absolute perfection though the cheese was nothing imported from France. The Sliced Chicken with Coriander Salad 沙姜葱油捞鸡 (18RMB) was cooked just right as were the Prawns with Thai Sweet and Spicy Sauce 泰式虾球 (22RMB) which was one of our overall favorites. The Spicy Tofu with Minced Pork 麻辣肉糜滚豆腐 (8RMB) was as expected considering the price, and the Spicy Shrimps 香辣胡椒虾 (48RMB) were a bit overdone but intentionally done that way so that they can absorb all of the spicy-flavoring. And we finished up our more-than-fulfilling meal with Cantonese Style Clay pot Steamed Rice with Bacon and Sausage 腊味煲仔饭 (30RMB) which had the bottom purposefully burnt for flavor. Don't miss out on the Handmade Shrimp Dumplings 手工虾饺 (32RMB). They were done with a skin thicker than we were used to, but they were delightful nevertheless. All of this was washed down with the hit of the afternoon; their Kumquat Lemon Juice 金橘柠檬汁 (25RMB/pitcher) which was absolutely unforgettable. There's no English menu here, so you'll have to stick to our translations if you're linguistically impaired, but it's definitely worth the effort if not for the decoration alone.
