China Club: Walk into China Club and you are drawn into a world where Chinese food meets fine dining; a place that will cater for a business meeting, family celebration or romantic dinner for two. Don’t be daunted by the menu, offering à la carte options as well as set banquets; keep your head, decide on your game plan and dive in. Opting for à la carte, vegetable spring rolls and prawn dumplings provided the opening salvo, and neither disappointed – the spring rolls had the right amount of crunch, giving way to piping hot, fresh vegetables inside, with juicy plump prawns steamed to perfection inside the dumplings. For mains, we ordered the green chilli beef – so tender and flavoursome that you really notice the quality of ingredients and the level of thought going into each dish from the restaurant’s chefs. Sweet and sour chicken, a classic staple of the Chinese dining experience is worth ordering, with its juicy white meat encased in crisp balls of batter and a rich, thick sauce.
