- Mid-range

4.4

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.
