Catch a quick snack when out shopping or meet a few friends and enjoy a selection of steamed dim sum filled with chicken and Chinese mushroom, or crab and cream cheese.

For mains try the peppered prawns – battered and stir-fried with onion and fresh black pepper. Also recommended is the spicier bang bang duck, stir-fried in green beans, lemongrass, chilli, garlic and Thai herbs.

The Thai Silk, a decadent duo of white and dark chocolate mousse balls, bursts with delectable flavours.


The drinks menu includes a litchi and lemongrass cooler, an Oriental infusion of vodka and Japanese rice wine, fresh lemongrass and vanilla sugar, as well as a selection of SA wines and French champagnes. Ask your waiter for the tea offering.


Friendly and polite.


Relaxed and inviting.

Best for…

Oriental cuisine at its best.

    You would not believe what a fab spot this is for a social and delicious experience! The menu is substantial and if you are adventurous, explore a whole lot of options and have a feast! We did this and can honestly say it was awesome and a taste sensation of note! So well done to the owners, chefs and staff for a world class experience so centrally situated being at Hyde Park Centre - so easy access and parking!
    HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SERVICE!and staff think they are over smart.I asked for sparking water they bring still & waiter says its my mistake.I order veg pad thai and they bring Prawn.After I ask them to change they say chef gone at (21:02) 30 sec after my food is kept on the table.when I say I should not be charged,the manager takes the existing food ordered for my hubby from the table,saying they cant eat if they dont want to pay!Really?Bring wrong order,dont have a solution to replace it then the guts to take the food away.DISGUSTING!Manager Eric is beyond arrogant.Got so pissed paid R600 bill without anyone eating any main course.

    Wonton soup with pork dumplings resulted in 2 days of food poisoning and unbearable cramps.

    Tasty food, exceptional and intuitive service. Good wine and atmosphere. Well worth the cost.

    Had my dinner-club here earlier this week. Service was a bit rushed, and non-attentive. Dim sum was good, as always. The Peking Duck was slightlly dry, unfortunately. Sure it was just an off night.
