The view from the 102nd floor is spectacular and the Ritz Carlton, which houses this restaurant, seems like a fabulous place to stay. The restaurant is opulent and the service is wonderful. Very similar in style and feel to other Michelin starred restaurants I have visited. The food was very good however there is a bit of a language barrier both on the menu and with some of the waiters, so be forewarned. On the menu, many of the dishes are either fried or deep-fried. We ordered a vegetable dish that was supposed to be stir-fried but was actually deep fried. Another dish that didn't mention anything about being fried was, of course, deep-fried. The food was very good but not overly healthy. It was certainly high-quality--not what you'd find at the average US takeout joint for sure. The Peking duck was delicious. I ordered a half of a duck which was very expensive and was no where near enough food as a main course. Should have ordered a whole one. For a purely culinary experience, I suspect that there are several other places which can deliver better food at lower prices, but it would be very hard to beat the view and the impeccable service at Tin Lung Heen.

First of all I was really impressed by the decor. Very beautiful and magic. The staff was very helpful. I was definetely happy with the menu. They have some vegetarian options that suit me. Vegetables were cooked to my liking and tasted even better than I expected. I must admit that it was one of the best dining experience I've ever had. Strongly recommend to visit!

The food, the service, and the decor is all fantastic. We had the Iberian Pork, the Wagyu beef with asparagus, and a beautiful vegetarian dish, Braised Bamboo fungus with spinach and black truffle. The food was to die for. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. When they found out I was in Hong Kong for my birthday (which was the next day) they bought out a beautiful birthday dessert. The made it a very special evening. It was a wonderful experience to eat here, for the food, the service (absolutely the best), and the decor. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend including a meal here as one of the experiences to factor in when in Hong Kong.

Came for Saturday dim sum- Chef Paul prepared lunch for us and it was fantabulous! His baked pork bun (which is so famous at other restaurants in this city) blew the more famous ones away. His pork belly was utterly crisp and amazing. Along with the beautiful restaurant and great service, this was a fabulous Chinese feast....and it was only lunch!!

If I were to be given the task of choosing only one best Chinese restaurant of Hong Kong, a formidable task as there are so many top establishments, it would be this restaurant. Yes, it is necessarily pricy but the food, the service, and the view over 102 floor, is all fantastic. Of the food, let's forget any budget concern and order the restaurant's famous signature dishes such as the Iberico Pork Char-siu, the Fish Maw and Chicken Soup double-boiled in a coconut shell, the Steamed crab craw.....all very expensive items but you will not regret paying for an occasional indulgence. To judge this restaurant properly, you cannot do so by a few dimsum, or something like Sweet and Sour pork (I think it is even stupid to order such things at this restaurant), though I do not suspect they can do everything well. This restaurant achieved Michelin 2* rating since new. Chef Lau is famous for his innovative touch of cooking based on a solid background of tradition, and to date his disciples head the Chinese kitchens of Ritz Carlton Guangzhou and Peninsula Shanghai, among others. He is capable of incorporating western ingredients into Chinese food and retain authenticity of the traditional style, thus the use of Iberico Pork and truffle in a discreet manner. It is always an experience to eat here, for the food, the service (good but a little warmth can be added to it), and the view. It would be an unforgettable experience.
