Mandarin Grill + Bar

European classics in Hong Kong
An institution in Hong Kong, Mandarin Grill + Bar in Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong was once a traditional dimly lit grill done in dark wood and leather. But Terence Conran’s recent renovation has transformed the space into a light-filled, elegant restaurant with windows looking over the city’s Central Business District. Tables are still generously spaced, suggesting the rumors that this is where the biggest business deals in Hong Kong happen, remain true. Classic European favorites can be found on the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant's menu, with rotating options that suit business breakfasts, lunches and exquisite tasting-menu dinners.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • It’s timeless. Old-school touches such as a champagne trolley make us feel like we’ve stepped into a black and white flick. Waitstaff in white dinner jackets adds to the charm.
  • The menu marries progressive gastronomy with grill classics. This may result in foam sauces and champagne gelatin. Don’t be scared. The focus here is on great food and gorgeous presentation and all the extras are just gravy.
  • Planning a private party? The Hong Kong restaurant can seat up to 14 people in a private room that features a view of the restaurant’s kitchen.
  • At the bar, cocktails with a twist are served with the restaurant’s signature warmed, mixed nuts.
Things to Know
  • Mandarin Grill + Bar is located on the first floor of Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, directly overlooking Statue Square.
  • It’s requested that guests not wear very casual clothing such as short pants, sportswear, torn jeans and short-sleeved shirts or T-shirts, and men should refrain from wearing open shoes.
The Food
  • There are two tasting menus. Choose from the Gourmet Tour and the Experience Tour. If you’re looking to add a little something special, opt for the sommelier wine pairing, which is available upon request.
  • The oyster bar offers crustaceans from around the world.
  • Don’t overlook the humble bacon and egg. This appetizer is made with 18-week Spanish suckling pig, organic duck egg, herbs and truffle jus. How you could say no?
The Look
  • Bright and airy, the dining room of Mandarin Grill + Bar is modern and sophisticated — and without pretension.
  • Created by famed British designer Sir Terence Conran, the dining room boasts an open kitchen, giving guests the opportunity to observe the behind-the-scenes workings of the restaurant.
  • If you want to be even closer to the action, belly up to the crustacean bar. Just behind it, at the center of the dining room, is a large banquette displaying lavish floral arrangements, while above, a molded, scalloped ceiling subtly adorns the space.
  • The Hong Kong restaurant is equally comfortable for a fancy occasion or a more casual bite.
