Unfortunately we discovered that the restaurant is closed due to a fire it seems from the outside. It is suggested that the restaurant opens again on September 3th but we doubt this. Anyone knows more information whether she re-opens?

Heard Jai Fai is closed unexpectedly until Sep 3. Can someone confirm if this is true? Our concierge at our hotel communicated that to us at the last minute so just want to confirm.

My Foremost Advice: DO NOT visit with an empty stomach or when you are very hungry. We arrived confidently without a prior reservation, partly because the coordinator among us had the wrong contact number. We walked in at 1:45pm, saw that it only opens at...More
