Located on the edge of Victoria Harbor inside InterContinental Hong Kong, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, Yan Toh Heen serves world-class Cantonese cuisine in a newly renovated dining room that evokes a contemporary Chinese residence — a luxurious one, to be sure — in shades of ivory, black and beige with gold accents. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame a superb harbor view. Birdcage-like partitions of opaque green onyx create intimate spaces for discreet dining. A jade motif threads the design together, a nod to Yan Toh Heen’s classic jade place settings. The warm but professional staff strives to make even first-time visitors feel at home with personalized, attentive service.
Chef Lau Yiu Fai’s cuisine reflects reverence for both tradition and innovation. Seafood (lobster, abalone), roast meats (pork belly, duck) and luxury items like bird’s nest (with crab roe) are the stars, and the artful dim sum offerings prove the old maxim about the best gifts and small packages. Special seasonal menus are available along with à la carte options, with an extensive selection of fine wines and teas to match.
