Dim sums are a style of Cantonese food, that is traditionally served in small steamer baskets. The food portion are small bite-sized. When you visit Hong Kong, dim sums are a must-have! Eating dim sums at a restaurant is known as “yum cha" (literally means “drink tea"), as Chinese tea is served with dim sums. We will review different dim sum places and each has its own unique selling points! (Click here to view our Dim Sums Review 點心系列)

This Michelin three-star Chinese restaurant is located on the 4th Floor of the 4 Seasons Hotel which is just beside the International Finance Centre IFC. Advance reservations are a must, whether it is for lunch or dinner. Service is excellent, and offers a view of the Hong Kong’s skyline and harbour. A private dining room for 14 is available for those who wish to have more privacy or dine with close friends and families.
Despite the Michelin three-star, the dim sums are not as great as expected. One possible factor could be that the dim sums are not traditional, hence those who likes modern style dim sums might find it more appealing! (MENU). Among the dishes that we tasted, the ones that stand out were the Baked Whole Abalone Puff with Diced Chicken 鲍汁蒸鸭肝配原只南非鲜鲍 and the Foie Gras Bun.
The Crispy Eel with Sweet Wasabi Sauce 蜂蜜柚子脆鳗鱼 was slightly disappointing, those served in Japanese restaurant might taste better.
For the money that I’ve paid (HK$500 to $800 per head), I would actually prefer Lei Gardens Restaurant, which is the next on our review list.
