    What is the dress code at Ying?

    Like Altira Macau’s other restaurants, the dress code at Ying is smart casual. The atmosphere is lively and not at all stuffy but the dramatic space isn’t the most informal on the property. You don’t have to get totally dressed up and most any attire will pass but you might want to wear something nicer than sneakers and jeans to feel most comfortable. The restaurant’s décor marries traditional red with modern textures and art, including an ornately carved wooden column, and the main dining room offers a dramatic and picturesque view of Macau peninsula.

    What is the scene like at Kira?

    The scene at Kira is largely dictated by its modern décor, which is clean and hip. Created by designers Hashimoto Yukio and David Sung, Kira’s pairing of acid etched mirror, glass and silver with icy blues makes the space feel contemporary and cool. The entrance to the restaurant is a dramatic long hallway that opens into the main room, which is set around a large circular food stadium for the buffet and a teppankayi counter. Given the buffet aspect, Kira is a bit more boisterous than its sister restaurants at Altira Macau.
