Chef Leong Chee Yen has helmed the kitchen here for a decade, and is known for his artistry beyond the kitchen. Hailing from a family of artists, he claims to be the weakest of the lot, yet turns out pottery and delicate decorations using food sources.
The bird sitting on the bough is detailed as it is pretty, and delicate. The varied figurines and containers add a personal touch to the restaurant.
