- Everything about Chynna, from the resident herbalist to the tea master and setting, is reminiscent of the glamorous 1920s Shanghai. Imagine red lanterns and oriental wall hangings surrounding you as you sit on deep red cushions, ready to feast away. Chynna serves some of the best dim sum and Cantonese fare in town. Order wok-fried black pepper beef tenderloin, braised shark's fin and butter prawns. Watch the chefs at work at the open kitchen as they prepare the 'little marvels' that end up on your table. Tea is a fascinating ritual at Chynna – servers garbed in traditional Chinese dress greet you with a complimentary cup of welcome tea, poured from a teapot with a meter-long spout. The entire act is filled with theatrics. The restaurant's menu also boasts holistic meals, which includes an array of herbal soup varieties and the 'well-being' cuisine for vegetarians.
