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...

we went at lunch time. early start 11:30am and promised to return the table by 1pm which is fine with us. the place was decorated to be like a Chinese palace. The waitress wore beautiful cheungsam. All appeared to be very neat and luxurious. Their dim sum are most in the shape of gold fish or porcupine. Some are really... More

A group of friends and I came here as part of a weekend trip to celebrate the fiftieth birthday of two amongst our group. We were drawn to try this because of its 3 Michelin stars. Sadly, we came away convinced that it is not deserving of the 3 stars. 2 maybe, but not 3. The food was good and... More
