A super yummy Chinese restaurant, but pricey! (Compared to other local restaurants in Hong Kong) We loved the pork belly appetiser, the braised spare ribs in plum sauce, and the chilli pepper shrimp. Don’t get the steamed fish, it’s not worth the price (HKD 1200...More

A fast and easy way to impress your out of town friends with their flower crab. The service needs improvement though.

Definitely smart casual. I like to look smart when I go to a lovely restaurant. I also think it shows some respect to the host.

Cantonese cuisine is light and delicate, and strives to bring out the original flavors of food. The foremost element of good food is the use of the finest and freshest ingredients. To us, local produce is an excellent choice. Chickens and pigs are raised locally in the New Territories. They taste great because they are fed with good quality forage and slaughtered daily. A number of old-style condiment stores continue to adopt traditional ways to produce superb first extract soy sauce in its purest and freshest form, and hand craft beancurd sheets with strong bean taste. A small number of local fishermen are persistently sailing out during the early hours to the South China Sea to catch live fishes and shrimps. In places like Yuen Long, there are a substantial number of vegetable farmers working diligently on their fields. At The Chairman, we have all along tried our best to acquire these freshest among the freshest ingredients, although their prices are slightly higher.
