This venue is located at the curve of the crescent-shaped lake, and it's got the soft ripples of the water, the beautiful scenery around the lake, and the breezy wind. Once you've stepped inside the big wooden doors of the restaurant, you're greeted with calligraphy work and Chinese paintings from Zhu Da, a famous painter and calligrapher from the Qing Dynasty period. These are precious collections of the owner, as he is a fan of ancient Chinese culture and art. As you go further inside, you feel like you've walked right into a Chinese painting. There are two antique chairs by a glass window reflecting the moon on the lake outside; in the courtyard is a small bridge lined with bamboos and on the stone wall is a brush painting of lotuses in the rain. The private dining room is lined with paper doors and wooden framed windows with the view of the scenery around Moon Lake as backdrop. You are able to drink tea and look out from the patio by the lakeside at the serene scene around you.
Recommended western dishes are foie gras and steak; Asian recommended dishes are Hainan Chicken Rice with a pot of healthy herbal tea. And don't forget to order one of the freshly baked desserts at the venue; you might need to wait a bit, but the delicious treat is definitely worth your time and patience.
