Review

Setting

Feng Wei Ju is a vibrant bustling restaurant located on the 5th floor of the Star World Hotel complex.  Devoid of windows  but elaborately decorated with vibrant red walls and cascading curtains of bronze mesh set asunder a ceiling adorned with hundreds of bronze discs creates an invigorating environment. Widely spaced tables and booth seating allow for privacy amongst an eclectic crowd enjoying the pulsating energy created.

Food

Specialising in Chuan-Xiang, one of the eight major cuisines of China, Feng Wei Ju’s chefs have a mastery over the use of spice that intricately enhances one’s taste sensation without obliterating one’s taste buds. An extensive menu featuring many regional specialties encourages diners to select from an array of beautifully presented dishes. A serving of old Beijing style pan-fried pork dumplings is ceremoniously presented with an assortment of sauces; wonderfully fragrant with a slightly thicker skin releasing the moist meat within, it is hard to stop at three, or four! A favourite Sichuan dish of dry-fried green beans with minced pork was elevated to a new level of elegance with a blend of salivating spices that whilst hot, entertained one’s taste buds in a melody of flavour. Chef Chan Chak-keong has trained his team to perfection as they present spice infused food with delicacy as reflected in a serving of superior dumpling Dalian style overflowing with a tantalizingly elegant crab soup simply oozing with flavour. For the brave the Sichuan style boiled river fish with hot chilli oil will test your resolve as the numbingly hot red sauce wraps itself around your tongue preventing any scream!

 

Wine

A master wine list from the Galaxy hotel is available and will offer you the opportunity to select some of the world’s finest vintages. The restaurant offers a unique selection of Chinese wines as well as a wide selection of premium teas designed to accompany the cuisine perfectly.

Service

An army of staff will accede to your every request.  A warm greeting at the door with a subtle enquiry about your tolerance to spice sets the tone for service that is attentive without ever being intrusive.   A good understanding of the menu allows questions to be answered assuredly and when not, another person is soon presented who can.  Dishes were explained, sauces to pair with presented and a genuine effort to ensure your meal was enjoyed evident.  Plates were sometimes forgotten to be cleared but water, tea and wine glasses were constantly refilled.

Price   $$$$$

An evening meal for two with wine or premium tea will cost just over MOP$1,500.00, this price may soar if indulging in rare and exotic dishes that sadly form a large part of the menu.
