Feng 奉, means following and inheriting in the Chinese language. Feng Tian Xiao Guan has always valued classic fusion and originality, perhaps best demonstrated through holding onto time-honoured Feng Tian delicacies and actualizing inventive ideas in its best-loved dishes. This is a classy affair that mixes rustic authenticity with natural flair; arguably what Northerners are best known for, and where diners can enjoy its intimate atmosphere and craftsmanship.
