                    Thank you for being a kind and wonderful experience on Christmas Eve. I had the vegetarian “Plum” menu plus wine pairing (in addition to the included tea pairing). Several courses were exceptional: favorites include the beginning mushroom soup, the lotus root + taro, and the steak mushroom + asparagus and tomato. The tea pairings were a delight and excellently chosen, as were the wine pairings. Some courses might do for some tweaking (A purely personal desire: I would have liked a bit more of a confident fruit-forward dessert, but that is just me), but for a restaurant to be plant-based as well as one that seems to avoid nuts while simultaneously offering a solid high-end tasting menu is quite an accomplishment. The restaurant also handles COVID protocols well, and the staff were all wonderful. I am looking forward to returning.

Each meal is served with a story and a meaning. Both servers were amazing. Nice soft music. If I could I would have a small pot of the “Pearl Fresh” everyday………

                    You don’t need to be a vegetarian (I’m not but my guest was) to enjoy this restaurant. I’ve had tasting menus at Michelin restaurants that I enjoyed less. If you’re curious what vegetarian fine dining looks like you should give it a chance. I’ll definitely return!

                    This is a prix fix eight course menu. Six of the courses were exceptionally delicious and creative. Well worth the price of the meal. But, would be much better if one could order a la carte. Maybe that's coming in the future. Our room and table were oversized for our group. Lighting was too far too bright. Combined with the cold temperature it felt sparse and antiseptic even though there was some nice artwork and furniture in the room and small but very beautiful floral arrangements. They are admittedly still "getting going." This restaurant is a great step forward for Orange County and will hopefully have a brilliant future. It needs and merits devoted patrons from the community to expand its offering.

                    The ambiance and the overall environment was not very consistent with Chinese culture. It seems more mixed with Western details. The food was excellent however.

                    Amazing food and beautifully presented; one thing that stood out to me the most was that every dish was so metaphoric, meaningful back story and a meal to celebrate new beginnings. The food and the servers were top notch and were so knowledgeable of each dishe. Ambience was a bit weird, it is a bit too bright since and have random things along the way like a TV etc, it could have a better flow with maybe like more of plants and gardens. Noisy level was a bit loud, knowing that it’s coursed out menu with fine dining feeling it to it, there were just lot a noises like inserting trash bags etc, and when we first walked in, we weren’t really greeted by anyone except there was a bald Asian guy that was sitting in the front table that looked at us confused thinking why we were there? Bottom line, food was amazing and the servers were very presentable with food knowledge of food they were bringing out! I would definitely come back again but hope to see some minor improvements in the future!

                    I reserved this place for an important business meeting due to its high-end environment even though I heard the dishes there are very pricy. Once I dine in there, I do not feel it is pricy at all. Each penny is definitely worth it: Each dish is an act of art, and a feast to the eye. In addition, most of the dishes are super delicious, but unlike eating most other delicious dinner, you may rest assured to eat without any guilt because all dishes are not only so-called environmentally friendly and pro-animal-welfare, but also appear to be quite light and healthy. Besides the artistic outlook of the dishes, their waiter and waitress are clearly hand-picked for their good appearance. Each dish of art has a story, presented by a server. I am not sure it was a coincidence or intentionally designed, they send in a different server for each different dish. They first send in a gorgeous waitress to present the story for the first dish, then a handsome waiter for the second dish, then another pretty lady for the third,,,each dish they send in a different server, all with different great look and the same fluency. Doubtlessly, you will experience quite a different experience here than anywhere else.

                    We did the vegetarian 9 course set meal.  Most of them taste so delicious, and moreover, everything hit our eyes seem to be so beautiful: the luxury hall, the spacious private dining room, the flowers on each dish that were just made for our table, and even the waiter and waitress. Lastly, all the dishes are all so healthy. I ate so much that day for dinner, and typically I would feel quite a burden for my stomach. Amazingly, for the whole night, I feel very light, yet kept the sense of fulfillment the whole night. This may have to do with the organic and healthy ingredient they pick. For instance, the dessert “Silver Age” is made of tofu, vegan mayonnaise and some kind of shredded red pepper, very tasty, gorgeous, and yet non-burdensome.  This place is great for high=end business lunch or dinner, as well as celebration of any special occasions. I would say it is very hard to find anything comparable in terms of comfort, elegance, and great food in orange county.
