Despite being on the brink of tackiness, Lost Heaven manages to maintain a classy low-lit and chic atmosphere and service, which makes it more than just a novelty experience, though this does come at a price. The food hails from Yunnan Province in China as well as northern Thailand and Burma and are no less exotic than the staff decked out in ethnic outfits and headdresses at the entrance. Expect ingredients such as pomegranate flowers, pine leaves and banana flowers — parts of plants you never knew were edible.
The pine leaves salad has purported health benefits and while we are sure the chef has done everything to dress it up, it still tastes exactly how you would expect of a plateful of pine leaves. The chicken with green onion and chilli struck a tasty balance with just the right amount of spice and mild, sweet flavor of green onions. The full-color menu is definitely a great help with thoughtful and descriptive English copy, and wait staff is on hand if you are still stumped by the options. Certainly a refreshing bund option beyond the usual picks, though do note the restaurant only opens for dinner and does not currently take card payment.
