We had 1.3kg of lobster with braised thin egg noodles. This was extremely tasty. Lots of lobster, each piece soaking up the juices of stock, ginger and shallots - but the noodles were the highlight for me. But I am biased. I love noodles especially noodles soaked in lobstery sauce. All coloured-glasses aside, the lobster was cooked quite well, was fresh and was extremely meaty.
We also ordered coral trout cooked two-ways. One was pan-fried with beans and mushrooms, the other was cooked in a pot, deep-fried then stewed with barbeque pork, chinese mushrooms and veges. The fish meat was soft and tender. The fish cooked in the pot had a much heavier, richer taste whereas the stir-fry was a lot lighter and bought somewhat a fresher feel to it.
We also ordered XO scallops with greens. Slightly oily, the scallops were cooked quite nicely - not too cooked, and not too raw. The XO sauce was interesting though, it was all stuck to one side of dish. I don't think this was by special request by my parents - but it could have been. What it meant was that one half was spicy (for my standards), whereas the other was like a normal oyster-sauce type stir fry.
Overall, the dinner was pretty good. The service was slightly lacking at times but the food was tasty, came out hot, and was fresh. To top it all off, the dinner was pretty cheap considering what we ate.
