Strange but true - this is comfort food for tycoons.

First things first - the food's excellent. So that must be why Hong Kong's premier tycoons, plus their entourage, screech to a halt here at mealtimes. Ignore them and they'll soon go away.

Food and drink

If you don't approve of shark's fin, you don't have to eat it. There's plenty of straightforward Cantonese fare coming out of the kitchen every couple of minutes.

Recommended dishes

See "shark's fin" above; the abalone is hand picked, bird's nest similarly top quality, and the ham sourced from a special supplier in Shanghai.

Ambience

Eating is serious. The big bosses will be cloistered away in a private room. Otherwise it's bright lights, mirrors, various architectural accoutrements to suggest good fortune and reasonably noisy, even if it's just people slurping.

Service

As a visitor, and a non-regular, you'll be treated well; ask if you don't understand the menu - your inquisitiveness will be appreciated.

Location

The restaurant's been going strong for the past four decades, during which time Wan Chai has dragged itself upmarket step by step. 

Price advice

Steer clear of abalone etc and it should be about HK$400 per head.

Branches

Also in Kowloon, Shenzhen, Shanghai and various cities in Japan.
