Not only is variety the spice of life, it is also soul of Berry Garden. This restaurant is more than a simple dining locale; it is also a bakery and breakfast nook, offering fine pastries on the first floor, a bar on the second level and a cafe, with continental fare and a pleasing garden view, on the third floor.
Though the ambiance and friendly staff were both delightful, the dishes were hit or miss. We thoroughly enjoy the roasted salmon with caponata and torreya nut (RMB 68), and were wowed by the tangy tomato sauce and the tender, well-seasoned fish. In contrast, the dry, bland beef stroganoff (RMB 45) disappointed.
Such a non-descript rice dish is out of place among the menu's other culinary treats.
