Yan Toh Heen

Contemporary Chinese opulence
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.

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.

  • The newly decorated dining room is luxurious in an understated way, with comfortable seating, and screens placed throughout the room to create intimate nooks and alcoves. The biggest draw, however, may be the floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the Hong Kong harbor and skyline.
