We are celebrating my grandfather 80th birthday and we need a private room for it. Since Lao Beijing is able to accommodate to our request, hence we decided to give it a try. We ordered set Menu D. There are also other set menus available.

Here is our private room :)

Noble ‘Tanfu’-style Braised Shark's Fin with Fish Maw: It is really quite thick unlike those watery shark fin in other restaurant. The taste of shark's fin with fish maw is really good and I don't need any pepper/vinegar to go with it.

Crispy Skin Roast Duck: The duck skin is really crispy and tasty and goes well with the sauce. The only troublesome part is we have to wrap the roll by ourselves.

Steamed ‘Soon Hock’ and Preserved Vegetables in Dried Conpoy Sauce: The fish is quite fresh and quite easy to eat as they cut in a way where most of the bones are separated from the meat. I really hate eating fish where I have to spend most of my time removing the bone.

Fried Prawns Balls with Golden Sauce: The fried prawn ball is quite nice but not crispy at all as it is soaked with the sauce. I think it could be better if the golden sauce is placed at the side allowing us to dip by ourselves.

Fried Venison with Black Soya Bean Sauce: This is my first time trying venison meat. It is really quite tender and soft quite similar to beef taste.

Assorted Mushrooms with Dried Scallops and Spinach Beancurd: Mushroom is always my favorite so nothing can goes wrong with it. However, the spinach beancurd has quite a weird taste ... I think a normal beancurd would goes well with it.

Fried Rice with Crab Meat and Egg White: The taste is quite plain nothing special.

Chilled Mango Cream with Pomelo and Sago:The sweetness is just nice and the taste is refreshing. The service is quite good as we have our own personal waitress to serve 2 tables. The dishes are also served quite fast and we didn't have to wait for very long.

Overall, the dishes are quite nice and I would recommend for family celebration with elderly as the taste suits them well.
