After settling in, we had called for the mocktails; Ginger Passion:
A drink which has perfect taste of fresh ginger with a hint of passion fruit syrup and lemon sprite. Refreshing and tasty and highly recommended if you like drinks overloaded with ginger.
This milk-based mocktail has fresh Blueberries, Apple Juice and Pineapple Juice. It’s heavy and quite filling, at the same time quite tasty.
A perfect blend of Fresh Strawberry juice, Sprite, and Lemon Squash, with a nicely salt-rimmed, to give you that perfect mix of taste.
Next we tried, Crispy Duck Spring Roll from Dimsums section:
The crispy roll perfect golden stuff with thoroughly cooked duck. It’s crunchy with each bite giving a mix of flavors and taste.
Pan Fried Chicken Dumpling:
The dumpling was perfectly cook with a thin coating on the outside. Making the dumpling delicious and on point, highly recommended.
Jia Special Roll from Sushi section:
Sushi Special is something that even a non Sushi lover would appreciate. The Crispy Prawn Tempura fill with Avocado and top with home-made sauce. It makes the entire Sushi super delicious and tasty to have. It’s crunchy on the outside and the sauce does overshadow the raw subtle flavour of the sushi.

In Appetizers we tried, Teriyaki Chicken:
The chicken chunks are succulent and are cook in Teriyaki Sauce. Along with mix bell Peppers and onions and are sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Crispy Prawns with Burnt garlic and almond flakes:
Prawns are top with golden fried garlic and almond flakes. Giving the perfect crispiness to the dish. Prawns are perfectly cook in Tobanjan Sauce and are palatable.
In Main Course, we had Five Treasure Mushroom fried rice:
Cook with Truffle oil, light and loaded with mushroom. Best try with Kind Prawn which is cook in Tobanjan Chili Sauce. Toss in chunks of onions and serve along with Prawn shells.
No meal can conclude without the dash of sweetness, so we tried Milk Chocolate Praline, the praline was very soft, smooth and delicious. Not very sweet and wasn’t heavy, something that goes perfectly with the heavy meal.
