General Comments
The Mulan restaurant is located on the first floor, lift available, of a refurbished building in a simple contemporary design setting. The service is informal and unhurried but nevertheless efficient even if a little reserved. The cuisine is Chinese and leans toward Cantonese style there being very much an emphasis on preserving the natural flavour of the food which is the hallmark of that cuisine. The menu is vast and I found the innovation on many of the dishes to be both fresh and subtle. Outstanding flavour is the stamp of the Mulan kitchen brigade. We were a party of four on a busy Saturday evening service. We had the Banquet (B) comprising crab meat sweetcorn soup, king prawns in spicy salt and pepper, aromatic duck, beef fillet in a tangy Cantonese sauce, chicken in a garlic chilli sauce, fried rice and pork with asparagus and cashew nuts. In summary, delicious Chinese food, tasty and well prepared. The emphasis was on large portions of meat and seafood The only criticism I would make is that the vegetables associated with the Banquet dishes generally were somewhat small portions and more like garnishes. For example, the spring onions and shredded cucumber and even extending to the Hoi Sin sauce were a portion for one person whereas the amount of shredded duck was an amount for four people. There are a number of typical Cantonese vegetable dishes on the menu. Nevertheless, even if you normally skip Chinese restaurants, you should visit Mulan. It's just very, very good.
