And its brunch brand-new Imperial Brunch pays homage to the Manchu-Han Imperial Feast. A legendary banquet in the Qing dynasty. Guests can dine on a three-course sharing feast of fluffy steamed bao buns. Delicate dim sum and dishes like Yun Nan Chicken stir-fried with truffle sauce and pan-fried sea bass.
