Gold Leaf

Transforming the old Shark Fin Inn into an imperial palace fit for his emperor and empress, an impressive venue for classic Chinese and Cantonese food. Already immensely popular with locals, the plush interior designs inside this Chinese restaurant would make those German Ford engineers scream who’s your daddy.

You get your usual suspects of lobster, stewed in garlic and spring onion and whole steamed barramundi. Commandingly salty were the spicy salt chicken ribs, deep fried til golden and crispy, though its partner in crime squid was strangely battered, with either the yolk not thoroughly cooked or flour improperly whisked in leaving it with a powdery exterior. Double happiness found in the sliced oyster mushrooms that could have been passed as abalone and the tender slices of fried beef canton style.

With speedy, efficient yet polite service that tries hard to please, you’d think you were amongst royalty.

3 / 5 yums!
