Located adjoining the swimming pool with an option of alfresco dining, The China Kitchen is one of the best places in town to have a Chinese meal. You may need to wait for a table but that is only indicative of the superlative food to follow. There are set menu options which are good value. The spinach pancakes may seem like an unusual recommendation in a Chinese restaurant but do not miss them. One of the few restaurants in the city to serve cold starters, The China Kitchen doesn’t shy from doing something different. Order the Peking Duck and you will find the way it is rolled up to your table on a trolley with accompaniments nothing short of theatrical. The golden duck itself is absolutely phenomenal and is served with thin rice pancakes, cucumbers, spring onions and hoisin sauce. Nothing short of a dream come true..

When the bartender has taken your last order and the bouncer has politely ushered you out of the club, China Kitchen's late-night spot still soldiers on. This 20-cover bar not only stocks some of the finest gins, malts, wines and sakes, but also offers potent cocktails, even though they admit after 2 am most patrons just ask for bottles. The last food order is taken at 1:45 am and sadly, doesn't include their Peking Duck, but the bar has a 24-hour license, which means it can stay open if you ask nicely and spend heavily. The Super Potato created warm vibe and intimate lighting makes it seem like your own private party where you can start off with a Sichuan Bloody Mary — an eye opener to wake you up from drunken slumber or the China Village Mai Tai, which will transport you to a beach retreat. The Vesper Martini is decent for a vodka martini, but it's the succulent Twice-Cooked Crispy Pork Ribs heaped with garlic and chili that we can't stop thinking about. The dim sums and Fried Lotus Root Fritters are good for savoury midnight cravings. End on a sweet note with the signature tea-based TCK — a blazing red wonder that needs to be appreciated slowly. Late night revelry, anyone?

Great place for Sichuan cuisine. Spice factor is awesome while the Peking Duck is fantastic (Best in town). Have been here dozens of times and the food is consistently good. Service has gone down over the months and pricing is now becoming a bit crazy.
A tip about the peking duck....once you are done with the wraps part, ask for the remaining duck to be made into soup and fried duck. It's quite outstanding and makes the dish worth it.

Their mango pudding is the best I've ever had anywhere. No wonder Hyatt hosts such great restaurants and bars. I'm a big fan. Otherwise food is clean, neat and tasty. But for a person, only snacks and Chinese, and no proper choice of meal, this place has limited things to offer.
