Good consistent food, though they charge extra just because of the Chinese New Year

Saw the mixture of positive and negative reviews online but still wanted to give it a try. The food was average and overpriced.

Had the sweet & sour fish set lunch, fish was served cold. Was served tea ( pu-er from a pot but it was not even hot, it was room temperature) even after we said we don't need drinks and was charged. Michelin - seriously?
