    Your typical high end Hotel fine dining. Pretty consistent and decent Dim Sum that is slightly on the expensive side. Comparable peers include, Man Ho of the J.W Marriott, Golden Leaf of the Conrad , Spring Moon of the Peninsula or Man Wah of the Mandarin

      Thanks Charles !

      I'm staying at the Conrad, will do Man Wah (M.O.)- Saturday and Yan Toh Heen Sunday - both my favorites and fix items of my rotation. Based on your feedback, I will discard this option and consider instead (The Manor, Fu Shimg, Tai Woo, etc. All I'm looking if for some good Char Siu, Yeung Chow Fried Rice, Dim Sum. What do you think?

        I heard the Manor has closed?!!

        Fu Sing or Tai Woo is decent. However, do something different!! Give Hong Kong Cuisine in Happy Valley a try! A huge surprise when I ate there!! Excellent food! No doubt, will get discovered pretty soon!

          Thanks Charles !

          Agree about HK Cuisine. Went there with a group last June and like it. I will keep searching for a place I have never been before.

            How about Seventh Son? It's getting lots of great reviews by the local cognoscenti and is quite new.

                Thanks PhilD, Charles and the rest of the Hounds !

                I place a reservation for Seventh Son already ! Exactly what I was looking for. For me HK is a moving target. You need to be in the lookout for the next breakout. Better try them sooner than later.

                what kind of food is HK Cuisine? It looks kind of like a mix of cantonese and sichuan food (maybe more HK influenced sichuan food)

                  No! Their food are no way fusion. They offer very selective and authentic regional dishes. eg., great Cantonese Har Gow and at the same time great Shanghainese veggie & pork pot stickers!! Guess their kitchen must have a few Masters each specializing in one or few regions. BTW, they have great fried rice and an awesome Shanghainese Smoked fish!! I have selectively posted a few photos of Dim Sums, and menu. Their dishes are all upload on an iPad which they hand out like menu!
                  If an outfit in North America offers this type of format, I will not approach it. However, in HK its another matter!

                    haha well thats what i meant is that they were offering sort of different regional dishes which is normally a pretty weird thing to see a chinese restaurant do in china, HK, taiwan etc

                    sounds delicious though...man if HK was just a little closer id be there all the time

                        It wasn't for lack of business. The building it's in (the relatively pleasant Sunning Plaza by I.M. Pei) is being demolished. It'll be back.

                        For all the expense and the fact that the waiters wore t-shirts from rock concerts, it was probably the best Italian restaurant in HK.
