Hangzhou is one of the nicer cities in China. The West Lake and surrounding mountains and tea plantations make it a bit more relaxed than its hyper frenetic neighbor Shanghai. The region boasts some amazing food stuffs and they are known for their delicate touch when it comes to appetizers. I spent a week at this restaurant and was blown away. The repertoire of the kitchen hovers around 150 items-many with their own sets of mise en place. So many things were done to order such as vegetable fabrication, dim sum preparation and fish butchery. It humbled me to see this all go down so seamlessly. Happily I got to taste almost everything on the menu-you can see descriptions and dishes in the China section of the website.
