The dim sum were delicious, and the chef took pains to present them in an interesting manner. We were surprised by the designs and had great fun taking photos for my niece and nephew. We enjoyed the meal very, but would enjoy more if the wait staff were more attentive and warm. Overall, will still come back here just for... More

During our Macau trip in March 2014, we went to Grand Lisboa’s Michelin three-star Chinese restaurant The Eight for lunch. The two of us ordered a total of nine dishes, each comprising two to four pieces of tiny little dumplings, tarts, or various kinds of meatballs. Most of these dim sum dishes were new creations by the chefs rather than... More

You have to take the lift to the 2nd floor, after passing the kitsch marbles, jade, ivory and gold statues at the main lobby of the Grand Lisboa, but once you arrive at The Eight you will find an amazing quite and relaxing restaurant with superb Southern Chinese food. The service is very good and for the first time in... More

One of our fellow hotel guests in Hong Kong highly recommended that we try The Eight during our day trip to Macau. And boy, am I glad that she did! Tucked away behind an automatic door on the second floor of the Grand Lisboa Hotel and Casino, the dining room at The Eight transported us to a culinary haven. Extravagantly... More

The dim sum is good, the service is good, the price is reasonable, the atmosphere is good, the decor is good.... What more you can expect? The only thing to remind is, booking in advance is a must! Walk-in dinning is almost impossible!

The restaurant setting is very luxurious, a mixture of dark and red furnishings. Once you stepped in, you are just wowed by everything.To save cost, we chose from the dim sum menu. The dishes were all so delicate that you couldn't even bear to eat them. You could see the effort being put into preparing the dishes. Goes without saying... More

The 3-Michelin-star Chinese-style restaurant “The Eight” is one of the top-class in Macau. Yet, its quality outputs are quite price-reasonable as different from many at that level. The dishes are well-served by highly-selected young waitresses dressed in cheongsam. One can really get immersed at foods and at their appearances simultaneously. The restaurant’s location on the Macau Island is easily accessible... More

The Eight is a unique Macau casino restaurant with lots of space between the tables, self-opening doors, a really impressive entrance, creative and fun-loving chefs, and cheongsam-clad waitresses with limited English who try very hard to please the small proportion of their customers who can’t speak Cantonese or Mandarin . We don’t feel that the restaurant should be judged by... More

We had the chefs menu on the advise of the staff as there was only 2 of us. We had desired suckling pig but it would have been way too much for us. The food was delicious particularly the crab claw , beef and the sesame dessert was to die for. Some of the textures and tastes were challenging to... More

This is the best Chinese restuarant in Macau in terms of the food they offered. However, the service is slow and the girls are forgetful. Not saying that they are not nice or impolite but they just keep forgetting things, forget to place order, forget to give you water, leave your dish at somewhere without serving it to you until...
