HOng Kong restaurants---price not a problem

Can someone recommend their favorite HK restaurants for 2 newcomers to HK (+ 1 business traveler), staying at the Intercontinental. We're in our 50's and want a nice relaxing atmosphere with good food and a lovely setting.

We don't want something too too---so I'm not sure if we want to go to Felix or Hutong--I think the food at Felix is a bit too architectural and too weird at hutong.

Would appreciate your advise----price is not an issue--we don't really want a fancy stuffy french either...

  1. There is a site called you can look for ideas. (recently they have it in English it's a bit like yelp in SF and toptable in London
    )I would recommend Shang Palace at TST Kowloon Shangrila for dimsum/yumcha.
    And Cafe Gray Deluxe at Admiralty Upper House for a fine non-french dining.

    You might wanna try the Spoon experience at Intercon. and the steakhouse is pretty good too.

      IMO, Yan Toh Heen, the Cantonese restaurant inside the Intercontinental and a new recipient of a Michelin star, has better food than the two Michelin 2*, Tan'g Court and Shang Palace in the vicinity. Also, YTH has a great view of the habour which Shang Palace does not provide.
      If price is not a problem, rather than trying out Spoon which IMO is only so-so foodwise, I would head next door to Nobu and have an Omakase meal! Great food but prepare to pay!!

    2. If you are staying at International in Tsim Tsa Tsui by the harbour and like buffets, you might want to try Harbourside for their buffet. Great view at night, relaxing, pretty good seafood and other items.
