The restaurant's interior incorporates suspended white fabric, intricately woven and hung from the artistic ceiling and flowing lines adorn the area, reminiscent of the powerful movements of a dragon in motion. This is further enhanced by harmoniously using gold and red colors in the décor together. These elements reflect the rich narrative and historical cultural legacy of the Chinese community in Phuket.
