Mix an A-List owner with a traditional Japanese restaurant - and the answer's Busy Suzie.

Not so much a restaurant - more a way of life. You may not have heard of Gilbert Yeung, the playboy owner, but you can't fail to enjoy the theatre of shouted greetings, loud hand claps, and the traditionally-clad chefs kneeling in the centre of a circle of admiring diners tending their grills with more than a soupcon of flamboyance.

Food and drink

The cellar brims with Champagne and fine wine, and there's a respectable selection of more ordinary labels as well. This is classic Robatayaki territory, with grilled meats and fish aplenty.

Ambience

Hong Kong tends to demolish old buildings: that this one was saved, and skilfully converted, is a real source of pleasure. One of numerous eateries in the immediate vicinity, it's got a great atmosphere thanks as much to its decor as its staff and clientele.

Service

The service is punctilious and deferential: even more so if your face is well known.

Location

It's part of a heritage development at the southern tip of Tsim Sha Tsui. Well on the tourist trail, but - thanks to its owner - something of a celeb hang-out too.

Price advice

Gulp. HK$1,500 per person. And that's without alcohol. Gulp again.

Tables to book

Sit up at the bar, and the chef will present your food on a paddle. Fun!
