You won’t need membership, or even a passing knowledge of cricket at this business-friendly Chinese destination within the Crowne Plaza. The eccentric name is in honour of the national team (launched in 2009, the year the restaurant opened), but that’s where the cricket talk ends. Concentrate instead on an array of menus that take a whistle-stop tour of the country’s cuisine, from Szechuan pork belly and dry-fried lamb to Cantonese prawn har gao, honey-glazed pork puffs and Shanghai noodles. A quick business lunch might mean dim sum with jasmine tea or a three-digit wine from the restaurant’s upper-tier list – or for a more indulgent affair, steamed lobster in Szechuan butter, black-cod gow gee, and crispy soft-shell crab with chilli mayonnaise. The rather corporate surroundings don’t contribute much to the overall experience.
