Expert review of One-thirtyone

Probably the most unique location of any restaurant in Hong Kong.

To open a restaurant in the wilds of the New Territories you have to be very foolish or very good. One-thirtyone is very good. Lovely food in lovely surrounds - what more could anyone want? Take note - reservations are essential.

Food and drink: 

With his eye fixed firmly on the changing seasons, chef Gary Cheuk produces modern Western cuisine, served with more than a little flourish.

Ambience: 

The feeling here is a little like rolling up at a friend's country house. By Hong Kong's (high-rise) standards, this is almost unearthly. One-thirtyone, a traditional three-storey village house, has been imaginatively restored, and decorated in a similar vein. When I had lunch here with a bunch of friends from overseas they would start to praise the food and then break off mid sentence to take in the view. Praise indeed.

Service: 

The service is perfectly pitched.

Location: 

It's on the edge of Three Fathoms Cove, behind wrought iron gates surrounded by a lawn. It takes the best part of an hour to get here by road from Central.

Price advice: 

The four-course lunch costs HK$600, and the six-course dinner is HK$900.
