Jasmine Express’s lighting sets the mood. Neon blue window bulbs evoke scenes of Seoul’s bustling nightlife, and backlit rose canopies mimic the warm hues of a Saigon sunset. Candlelight is also in the mix, painting tablecloths with bouncing shadows as waiters’ arms unload Korean kimchee, boiled Vietnamese soups, and bamboo baskets full of shui mai and shrimp dumplings. Patrons can also illuminate plates of Chinese rice dishes available to-order, on the buffet, or sent directly from Beijing by catapult.
