It is good food :)

To be more specific, Xin Divine’s chefs are influenced by Szechuan, Cantonese and French cooking, so the restaurant's menu is an interesting blend of all that (plus what Jolin said). :)
Their presentation is pretty and different, but you’ll recognise the ingredients and flavours after taking a bite. The names of Xin Divine’s dishes will also give you a clue: Szechuan Style Tortellini, Hokkaido Scallop, XO Fried Rice with Crab XO, and Chinese Polenta, just to name a few.
The Osmanthus Sphere, for one, is a jelly orb filled with chilled winter melon and rock sugar soup, and includes sprigs of osmanthus, wolfberries, and the Chinese herb pang da hai (malva nut). It also comes with a shot of fizzy red date juice.
Jolin recommends the following modern eateries if you're on the lookout for progressive Chinese cuisine and more exciting meals:
• Tate Dining Room, Hong Kong
• Mr & Mrs Bund, Shanghai
• Curate, Singapore
• Ding Xian 101, Taipei
• Cure, Singapore
Happy eating. :)
