We hosted a dinner for clients here and we chose it based on its Michelin star and location in central. Westerners who may not have previously visited Hong Kong may like it for its traditional Chinese decor. Having come from Singapore and eaten in many places in Hong Kong, I would say this place is rather cliche in its decor.... More

When initially researching high-end restaurants in Hong Kong, I was tempted by Lung King Heen, due to their three Michelin stars. However, a few mediocre reviews gave me doubts, and I decided to consult with the concierge at the W, who recommended Man Wah as a good alternative. I booked well in advance, and upon arriving we were given a... More

Hong Kong is not a good place for vegetarians with meat stocks and powders often finding their way into apparently vegetarian dishes. So it was great to find a true vegetarian tasting menu at Man Wah. The non vegetarian menu was also excellent which combined with excellent cooking and friendly professional service provided a very special dinner.

I made a reservation at Man Wah for my husband's birthday lunch and it was definitely the best dim sum we have had after being in Hong Kong for 6 months. We started the meal with a wonderful glass of Chardonnay continued by the steamed mushroom and truffle dim sum, Shanghaiese soup balls, beef pastry and shrimp won tons. The... More

You will not regret having a meal here. I really enjoyed the ambiance; the views are phenomenal and the decor is elegant. The food is outstanding and this remains one of the most memorable meals I've enjoyed. As with the rest of the hotel the service is outstanding.

My dinning experience at Man Wah was a nightmare and I could not wait to LEAVE! Eating at Man Wah almost made me cry, seriously. It is because our male server was extremely arrogant and rude from the beginning to the end. Every time when the waiter came to our table, I was scared how rude he would be! Asking... More

Everything about this place is wonderful. The view, the food and the service. We ate here for the fireworks and it could not have been a better. The staff is so good that it almost didn't matter what they put in front of you, but then the food was magical. You must go!

This is Chinese fine dining at its best with possibly the best views on the island. I had sent an email to book our table about two weeks before arriving in Hong Kong as we were visiting about a week before Chinese New Year and we received a confirmation within a couple of hours after sending it. The restaurant is... More

We expected the best. It came out as a good Chinese restaurant, but there are many better fine dining restaurant in HK or elsewhere. The view, decoration and service quality are up to expectations. We chose the set dinner menu, which was well balanced with a nice variety of dishes to showcase the chef's skills. But why is it that... More

It comes with great reviews but what a disappointment. Not being allowed in well dressed shorts was my introduction.. fortunately a $34 pair of Uniqlo cords were in a bag ! Poor selection. Expensive. Overly fussy wait staff. The worst yum cha I have had in years…worldwide ! Only redeeming feature is the view but that is not enough to... More
