Chuan’s literal meaning is ‘a steady and continuous stream that flows forever, finally forming the sea': a perfect fit for the restaurant’s iconic waterfront location at The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah – offering a relaxing eastern-inspired ambience with prime view of the entertaining water fountain opposite Atlantis.

The reception was set in the terrace with a perfect view on the waterfront facing Atlantis, the palm. Though the Palm fountain show was not operating due to strong wind, however the view was breath taking nonetheless. Sparking wine and bar snacks were served throughout the reception.

It was a terrific event. We were so pleased by the delicious and elegant experience and the warm welcome.
Special thanks for the extra Chinese wine to accompany Peking Duck which was delicious.
Some guests asked for second servings and there wasn’t anything left! A compliment to the kitchen!

Our special thanks to Chef Wen Long Zhen and the kitchen brigade for the immense work, the attention to detail. We understand it was a challenge to serve 48 pax with some contemporary plated courses instead of the usual Chinese style sharing.
To the service brigade, our special thanks for friendly and efficient service.
Starry Mao, many thanks for coordination; for taking care of our needs.
