The Gulf Hotel’s signature Chinese restaurant, China Garden is set in a peaceful corner of the hotel and serves from a menu that incorporates dishes from across China. With charming service, and delectable Chinese fare, this restaurant wouldn’t look out of place in Hong Kong.

I went to China town today for lunch up on Timeout recommendation. I thought because it's also located in a 5 star hotel it will not disappoint me.

2 glasses Red wine one was Syrah or Shira. The other one was Cabernet Sauvignon... The wine came in a premature that was between 3-6 degrees. For who doesn't know that means colder than water should be severed.

Chicken fried rice was tasteless no salt, no soy-sauce actually was not addable without putting some sauce on top.

Crispy shredded beef was very crispy and nice but strangely cooked with capsicum and was not strong enough flavor of chili because when eaten with rice it becomes tasteless.

Schezwan Chicken was nice. And the steamed rice was done nicely (but how wrong can you go with steamed rice?).

Service was far too low. And when confronted with my complain about the freezing red wine the waiter was so stressed, seemed he took my advice of changing their wine preserve their wine as a personal insult and did not even apologize for my incandescence!

I do not understand how did this restaurant even win your prize!
