Are there high-end Cantonese restaurants with good service?

I haven’t been to many high end ones in the US but i got better service at China Tang at MGM with my brief visit there for dessert.

I think that would be a good thread.

Hotel restaurants might be an exception to the rule since there’s an additional layer of management.

The highest-end Cantonese place I’ve been to was the Crystal Jade branch in SF, on which they spent $14 million, but service was about like you’d get in a suburban strip mall.

No. You want mature hummingbirds.

Is it just me, or does the Board seem less active than usual? :frowning:


I’ve been noticing this, too.

Blame it on the man who refuses to ever lose an argument, even if it means arguing with himself.

I was never really good at this stuff, but it looks like a very small group of highly active users. 50-55 users making 600-odd posts a week?? Really?
