I came here about 18 months ago and absolutely loved it. Not sure if I would return again after this visit.

Courtesan isn't a bad place by any stretch but it's quite rough around the edges and in need of a face lift. 

I didn't find any of the food particularly exciting. The soft shell crab was good but I would have preferred the sauce on the side as it was a bit heavy and reminded me of mayonnaise although I don't think (hope) it was. Everything else just kind of blurs into one. It wasn't a bad meal but nothing special. 

The cocktail menu was very comprehensive with a good mix of orginal and classic cocktails and I enjoyed the signature Courtesan with my meal.

Delicious dim sum, fabulous cocktails and rich dark décor – Courtesan makes for a wonderful dining experience. Their Dark and Stormy cocktail is one of the best I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a few cocktails in my time)… However, it can end up a little pricey as wee dim sum dishes quickly add up. So ideal for an intimate dinner for two, but not so great, if you’re ravenous /going out with a large group of men with man-size appetites to match.

A great dimsum place with fantastic cocktails. particularly good to escape into its relative calm when the market and village are overflowing. The char sui steamed buns are a must.
