Top 10 Fine Dining Restaurants in Hong Kong

The question that I get the most is what are the best restaurants to try in Hong Kong so I've decided to put together a series of list that will hopefully help you with your restaurant planning. Here's my list of top 10 fine dining restaurants to try in Hong Kong for those who have the budget and are looking to splurge for a special meal!

VEA Restaurant & Lounge

VEA is the brainchild of chef Vicky Cheng and famed mixologist Antonio Lai, and definitely one of my top favorite restaurant in Hong Kong! The chef manages to fuse French and Chinese cuisine together seamlessly which is best appreciated by those who have an understanding of Chinese cuisine to fully realize the ingenuity of the dishes here. The thoughtful cocktail pairing is also worthy of a try when you are dining at the VEA restaurant!

29/F-30/F, The Wellington
198 Wellington Street, Central
Tel: +852 2711 8639


Currently ranked #20 on the "World's 50 Best Restaurants" list, the 2* Amber is the only restaurant in Hong Kong to be included on the prestigious list. Located in the Landmark Mandarin Oriental with culinary director Richard Ekkebus at the helm, the restaurant's signature Hokkaido Sea Urchin is a must-try (which unfortunately has been taken off the menu) and the Weekend Wine Lunch with 6 courses of food and wine pairing is a fabulous way to spend the weekend for sure!

Tate Dining Room & Bar

The 1* Tate Dining Room & Bar never fails to impress where the chef Vicky Lau is best known for her edible stories of French-Asian cuisine and was crowned Veuve Clicquot's Asia's Best Female Chef 2015! The restaurant's intimate and romantic setting is perfect for any type of celebration and it offers a really good value for money in terms of the quality and creativity of the food that you get with its gorgeous presentation and innovative pairing of ingredients.

The Chairman 大班樓

The Chairman is one of my favorite restaurant for traditional Cantonese cuisine which strives to bring out the original flavors of food by using fresh and local ingredients. Even though the restaurant has been snubbed by the Michelin guide, it is currently ranked #35 on "Asia's 50 Best Restaurants" list and beloved by locals in Hong Kong. The signature Steamed Fresh Flowery Crab with aged Shaoxing wine and flat rice noodle is an unforgettable dish that will leave you yearning for more!

With its beautiful "ready for camera" dishes, Empire City Huaiyang is the place to take your family, friends, visitors and business guests if you want to dazzle them with traditional Chinese cuisine that are presented in a modern way.

The 2* Yan Toh Heen in the InterContinental Hotel is one of the best places to eat dim sum in Hong Kong with beautiful views of the Victoria Harbour and food to match.
