Lung King Heen is one of the most critically acclaimed Cantonese restaurants in the world. It doesn’t come cheap, but the food, ambiance and stunning dining room will surely impress. Translated as ‘view of the dragon’, Lung King Heen is located in the Four Seasons Hong Kong on the northern shore of Hong Kong Island.
The dining room is classically designed with silver and glass features, particularly the silver-leaf ceiling which flows like a gently lapping shore. It reflects the smoothness of the service at Lung King Heen which runs effortlessly and further contributes to the ambiance. Despite its fourth-floor location, the full-length windows offer incredible views of Victoria Harbour and Kowloon on the other side of the bay.
Dishes are meticulously prepared and presented here. The dim sum lunch is highly recommended or come for dinner and be treated to some of the finest seafood dishes in Hong Kong. Executive chef Chan Yan Tak has been at Lung King Heen for more than 10 years together with the vast majority of his kitchen team. This level of consistency is one of the main reasons why the restaurant has joined the exalted company of restaurants that has achieved 3 Michelin Star status.
There are plenty of set lunches to choose from, with special weekday and weekend dim sum lunches, and a seasonal chef’s tasting menu. Weekdays, this is a popular restaurant for businessmen to power lunch and perhaps hammer out the finer points of a deal, whereas weekends are a far more leisurely affair with families taking their time over courses. It is fair to say this is one of the most sophisticated dining rooms in Hong Kong; nevertheless, there is a kids menu with dishes such as scrambled egg and shrimp, and congee (rice soup) with garoupa fillet. A la carte dishes at Lung King Heen cost around HK$200-400, while the evening tasting menu costs a little over HK$1,000.
The dim sum here are so special because the recipes place several seafood ingredients together in the same bite-size portion. Few other places will include garoupa, king prawn and scallop together, but the result is magical as each flavour brushes over the palate in a wave. Classic recipes are reinterpreted by Chef Tak with small additions or manipulations to create dishes that are familiar and yet completely fresh. Do be aware, dim sum is only available for lunch.
Reservations are mandatory at Lung King Heen, with weekend dinner reservations sometimes filling up weeks in advance. Considering the vast range of dining options in Hong Kong – and the steep prices – this is the best proof of just how memorable a dining experience awaits.
