“A favourite!”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

The Wing Lei is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Macau for three simple reasons:
a) the food is very good;
b) the prices are reasonable;
c) last but not the least, the premises are beautiful, far from the traffic noise and with ample windows that let the sun come in.

This is a restaurant I can endorse!

“A light lunch of Oriental canapes (dimsum) in a contemporary dining room”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Be prepared to book your table at least a day ahead in this popular Chinese restaurant if you plan to do lunch in the non smoking section. There is currently a set lunch promotion where one can select six types of dimsum from the lunch menu for MOP158+ making Wing Lei an affordable but classy lunch venue in the Wynn where most of the restaurants are on the pricey side.

The airy, bright and contemporary designed restaurant is a refreshing change from the plush red carpeted floors, maroon suede drapes and chandeliers of Wynn Casino. (Wing Lei is located at the far end of the casino near the V IP gaming lounge.) Taking centrestage in the restaurant is a long crystal dragon carving mounted on the wall.

Service is alright but not outstanding, perhaps because the restaurant is particularly busy at lunch even on weekdays. Many non gamers visit Wing Lei attesting to the fine quality of its dimsum as well as the popularity of the MOP158 set lunch. Take your pick from the dimsum menu of about 30 items which include staples such as shrimp dumplings (hagow), crab roe and pork dumplings (xiumai), steamed buns with barbecued pork filling (chaxiu bao), spring rolls and traditional Cantonese desserts such as red bean bisque with lotus seeds and lily petals (hong dau sar) and chilled mango juice with pomelo sacs (yong zee gone lou). As is the practice in full service Chinese restaurants there is a nominal cover charge in Wing Lei for Chinese tea, condiments and napkins. Total cost per head is MOP200 for the set lunch and free flow of Chinese tea.

“Yum Cha perfection”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

We have had Yum Cha at the special Chinese New Year celebrations in Las Vegas Wing Lei, but the timing of the trip has to be spot on because there is only a two week window, but in Macau you can get superb Yum Cha all year round. Such a treat! A definite must for lovers of yum cha - dumplings, buns, rice crepes, little bundles of fried gooey goodness. We ate a lot and we loved everything. It's not fine dining, but it's fabulous yum cha!

“Good Dim Sum Lunch”
Reviewed November 14, 2010

Went for Dim Sum for lunch and quite enjoyed it. Food was good, better than many other restaurants in Macau. Service was OK, but English seemed to be a little challenge. Nice restaurant, my freinds thought it was a bit overdesigned, but I liked it.

“overrated chinese food”
Reviewed November 16, 2009

it is nearly impossible to get a reservation for lunch on the day of, having tried several times. i finally planned ahead and reserved a day ahead. there was only one slot available, from 11:30am to 1pm. i figured it must be popular for a reason. i arrived on time to a nearly empty restaurant. it stayed empty for the next hour i was there, when supposedly i had the last open reservation. i was severely disappointed, the food was at best average. i am now convinced after eating at a few Wynn restaurants that the restaurants are not run for gourmets, but rather for the high rollers. in all my experiences so far, tables seem to be kept empty, just in case the occasional high roller hankers after a meal. the ambiance is nice, but the food consistently underwhelms. i would never return to this restaurant.
