“The FINEST Restauant in HK, bar none!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Upstairs on the 6th floor of the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the Adam Tihany designed Macassar ebony wood filled dining room under a sculpture of 4,320 suspended bronze rods always takes my breath away, whether I come for a business dinner or big date. The Hong Kong born sommelier John always has perfect pairing suggestions to the cuisine of Paris-trained Dutch chef Richard Ekkebus who really does earns his two Michelin stars nightly with modern, French influenced dishes lovingly crafted from ingredients flown in daily, from the Tokyo fish market and even far further away, like Tasmania and Brittany. Ekkebus's training in France under celebrated talents Guy Savoy, Alan Passard and Pierre Gagnaire comes across in dishes like foie gras ravioli simmered with black truffles over a creamy violet artichoke in poultry velouté, Bresse pigeon with wild mushrooms; and line-caught amadai with orange and fennel confit.

Equally talented is the pastry chef. No matter how much I've already eaten, I find room for whatever is the evening's soufflé, and also eat the sweet treats that come with our coffee. Then I start planning my next visit here.

“Amber is a jewel”

The best restaurant in Hong Kong. (OK; I havent been to every restaurant - but it is much better than the usual suspects like Caprice). Really good. Faultless.

“A dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Wouldn't do the wine-pairing though, due to the number of courses you'll be silly drunk. Food was to a high standard, I especially enjoyed the sea urchin with caviar, plus the impressive array of cheese available - we weren't cheese connoisseurs and the waitress was happy to give us a tasting board.

Service was excellent, staff in waiting were extremely knowledgeable about their food.
