Expert review of Cuisine Cuisine

Some of the best Cantonese in the city, if not south China.

Executive chefs Tsang Chiu Lit and Lee Yuk Lam aren't so much at the top of their game as writing the rules and refereeing too. In a city filled with Cantonese restaurants, and around seven million self-acknowledged experts on Cantonese cuisine, this restaurant has very few rivals.

Food and drink: 

As an indication, they are even picky about the sort of soy sauce that gets used here. Freshness and cooking techniques are supremely important. The cellar hosts some 150 wines from around the world. 

Recommended dishes: 

Honey-glazed barbecued pork and sautéed prawn with black truffle. Whether you go for the shark's fin dishes is very much a personal choice.

Ambience: 

It's very smart but not in any way overwhelming. The central ethos is that everyone should enjoy what they are eating. Lots of suits parachute in here from the office towers above and around.

Service: 

In parallel with the food, it's very upmarket. Feel free to ask for advice on the menu.

Location: 

It's in Central's smartest mall, with a good view of the harbour. Take a stroll on ifc's upper deck to work up an appetite.

Price advice: 

It's around HK$800 for two, unless you are headed for the star dishes like shark's fin.
