No one spoke Chinese in the joint. I don't even think they spoke English. It was as Nu Yawk as the Statue of Liberty. And it was Greenwich village vibe cool. Good music and a wide array of fun cocktails. They can do mock on request. Definitely noisy and the acoustics amplified it.
And the food?
Like a lot of places these days which tout sharing so everyone gets a taste of everything, we were advised on picking from the different sections in the menu - raw, skinny and fatty. They also have sides like in good ole fashioned America. Since there were only 2 of us, we skipped to the chase and and had 3 fattys!

Overall, lotsa fun and good quality food (just don't think of it as a Malaysian experience). It's a theme restaurant for crying out loud. And you do have to, to be heard over the noise, and to get past the only broken link in communication who stands out front waiting to receive guests. Her aside, it's good service all round without the service charge. Yes, tipping is "discretionary" (just like in America).
