The restaurant is located at Imperial Pacific Resort, adjacent to the casino floor, and caters to local residents and visitors.

Various wines complement the authentic Chinese food they serve, according to IPR assistant vice president for hospitality and affairs Lucy Guo.

The restaurant’s executive chef, Haisong Chen, has 29 years of cooking experience. He has worked at the Golden Flower Restaurant, the Wynn Palace Cotai Resort in Macau, the Michelin Star Restaurant and the Imperial Treasure at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Chairman M’s dishes are prepared with high quality ingredients, Lucy Guo said.

The boiled fish soup, for example, “is not just a regular soup,” Lucy Guo said. The soup consists of fresh fish, tasty vegetables and skillfully blended seasonings that add richness to the flavor, she added.

Roast duck, one of northern China’s famous dishes, is prepared in Chairman M’s “imperial” oven which is used exclusively for that purpose.

Then there’s goose liver, which is served with wine, and cod fish covered with a special sauce. Both have strong flavors that northerners like, Lucy Guo said.

But they also serve non-northern dishes: savory seafood, tender meat, tasty vegetables, Japanese wag-yu beef which should be enjoyed with wine, eel cooked Japanese style and special fried shrimp.

For beer lovers, Chairman M serves ice-cold draft Stella Artois. Also available are Macallan M, and Macallan No. 6 Scotch whisky and the popular Chinese liquor, Moutai 50, among other drinks.

Lucy Guo said they want local residents to try their high-end dishes which, she added, are “very affordable.”

“Mostly our food is for VIP’s which is why it is healthy and, at the same time, superbly tasty,” she said.
