The 'Imperial Treasure' is a modernized Chinese restaurant, which uses architecture as inspiration for the interior decor. The entirety of the eatery is flushed with a sultry gold-toned lighting.

Designers at Metaphor Interior used an image of a traditional Chinese village to base ideas around. The image is now residing inside the restaurant as the main focal point. Additionally, there are large patterned prints that spread across the seating and the ceilings. There is also an open kitchen concept, which is rarely seen in these types of eateries.

While many Chinese restaurants prefer to use ancient themes and classic styles, the Imperial Treasure is encouraging change and modernization. However, the menu and the plating remains as a traditional tribute to the restaurant's culture.
