“Inventive and confident chinese cuisine with an amazing view”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

My friend and I had an impressive 7 course wine pairing menu - given that Asian cuisine is tricky for wine pairing, kudos to the sommelier for the choices. Favorite dishes include the roasted pork belly (not greasy at all), the lobster and black truffle soup and the steamed turbot in a delicate soy sauce broth. The tofu and green tea ice cream capped paired with a tokay was lovely.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We were staying at Hotel Icon, and took a table on our last night, and ordered the Peking Duck menu with the recommended wines by the glass - all thoroughly recommended!!! Absolutely fabulous! But take your appetite with you, as the quantity of food is impressive!

“Delicious food, great views”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

For dinner we had a window seat which was the perfect spot to watch the nightly laser light show ‘Symphony of Lights’. Staff were very attentive, with our waiter suggesting a menu for each of us tailored to our dietary requirements. To start one had hot and sour soup which was flavoursome and not too overpowering, the other a gorgeous pumpkin broth with crab meat, very delicate and tasty. For mains one had a succulent lamb dish which was the standout of the evening; honey glazed bbq pork to share, which was a must try classic dish; and the other chose the signature dish of lobster and eggwhite, an adventurous choice.

We also had lunch here which was equally delicious and once again we enjoyed the choices among traditional classics and signature dishes.

“Great food, great place, fantastic views”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We had a great Chinese meal in this really fabulous setting overlooking the island and harbour within the Hotel Icon. They got everything right, the food was excellent, service great and the style of the place just knockout. In fact, our whole experience of the Icon Hotel was great, we wished we had stayed there!

“Valentine's evening in Hong Kong”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

The view from our table was spectacular and we were lucky enough to be there for Valentine's evening which meant we experienced a wonderful seven course Cantonese banquet. The wine selection was excellent. However, the name suggests that your experience should be Above & Beyond this was not completely true as the service was a little lacking with young, slightly inexperienced waiters who didn't really do enough to support this wonderful restaurant and location.
