We had lunch there today and enjoyed it very much. Would highly recommend it.
It is part of the Inter Continental which over looks the harbour.
The service was excellent by Alexis who looked after us during our visit.
When I asked Chef Cyrus did he have any roast beef that was well done as it was medium rare he said he could sear it for me. He also told me they do not do any satay skewers today but cooked two for me. Nothing was too much trouble for him and I was very pleased as I really do not eat seafood.
The restaurant was full even though it was Tuesday Lunch.
One could not fault the quality of the food, service and friendlyness of the staff.
Well done Inter Continental.

We were visiting HK from the US and decided to try their buffet. Their seafood were fresh and their lobsters were tasty and plentiful. The service was top notch as to be expected. Our server, Himson, were attentive. I would have given this a 5 star but with the buffet over $100 US per person, I would think that tea and coffee would have been included. I was surprised that ordering coffee and tea were extra. I've eaten in some of the best buffets like in LA and Vegas and unlimited drinks were included. It might be something the restaurant may reconsider.

Friends and I came here to have a Sunday brunch and overall, the food here is great with varieties of choices from cold dishes, hot dishes to dessert. However, the environment doesn’t look like a 5-star hotel as the tables are packed together and old fashioned. To me, I think the restaurant would probably need to be renovated to a give a refreshed look and to maintain its top ranking in the city.
