“Best Dim Sum”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

AMAZING! Best restaurant I want to in Macau or Hong Kong and I visited a number of very nice places. It is Michelin rated for a reason. Food was amazing and beautifully displayed, restaurant had a wonderful ambiance to it. I didn't feel it was that expensive considering the amazing quality of the food. I was disapointed at the deserts however. If you are looking for great dim sum and are willing to pay 30-40 dollars or more this would be the place to go. (You can also get a 10 percent discount just by getting a card for the Grand Lisboa without even gambling)

“Good dinner but not worth the price”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

I went to this restaurant for dinner, not for dim sum like other reviewers, therefore this review is only applicable to the dinner menu. The food was pretty good and fairly authentic. It is also a beautiful restaurant with a great atmosphere. However, for the price you are paying, the food should be better and the portions larger. For example, one of our fish dishes was really overcooked and we ordered "spicy beef" which was actually on the sweet side, not at all spicy. I think there are better places to spend your money in Macau.

“Delightful Dim Sum”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

The Eight, surely deserved its Michelin stars.
Elegant décor for a Chinese restaurant especially the entrance corridor.
Tables and booth seats are spacious.
Menu is fabulous with great varieties and specialties.
Dim Sums are all delicately done with a creative touch for each dish.
Perfect for Yum Cha or banquet.
Wish there is such excellent restaurant in my local area.
Remember to make reservation to avoid disappointment.

“Best dim sum in macau”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

This place is probably the best dim sum restaurant in macau.
The dishes are all superbly and creatively presented, and the usual dim sums are all very fresh and some have little added twists.
Definitely the place to impress corporate execs but still reasonably good value for families.
Dinner is a different proposition though as the prices rocket up.
Go for dim sum!
