Concierge.com's insider take:
Dark, moody, and sleekly sophisticated, Lost Heaven serves a rich fusion of regional Yunnanese and Burmese cuisines with a noticeable Thai kick. The three-floored interior is dressed in dark woods, red lanterns, Southeast Asian artifacts, and Yunnanese stone face masks. A two-floor shrine on the back wall is made from dried pu'er tea leaves. Unsurprisingly, it's a see-and-be-seen hot spot for local celebs and visiting movie stars from Hong Kong. An extensive menu has garlicky and lemongrass-infused seafood and meat options. For extra spice, try the Burmese curried vegetables, and for regional authenticity the flavorful dishes incorporating Yunnan's famed mushrooms. The first-floor Mask lounge offers ambient DJ tunes, boudoir chamber beds, and more spot-lit stone masks.
Open daily 11 am to 2 pm and 5:30 to 10:30 pm.
