Don't be misled – there is no need for membership to dine at this ‘club’. And for this we should be thankful. Large red lanterns and traditional elements of the Far East blend seamlessly with white tablecloths, intimate booths and a whiff of European fine dining (check the opulent private dining rooms for large groups). Despite this, the menu is all authentic Chinese, with a strong selection of meat and seafood options served with classic seasonings and familiar styles, which boast a home-cooked quality lacking from many other five-star competitors in the city. Elsewhere, service is spot on, with the atmosphere tranquil with pleasant classical Chinese music setting the mood. While we couldn’t describe a meal here as cheap, it is far more reasonably priced than comparable high-end contemporaries.
Open daily 12.30pm-3pm, 7.30pm-11pm. Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek, Deira (04 222 7171).
