The Most Delicious Michelin Restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong

If you want to eat at some of the world’s best restaurants, you don’t have to go further than Lan Kwai Fong.

While most of the world has been gearing up for the Christmas holidays, Hong Kong’s restaurants have been anxiously awaiting the biggest night of the year: The Michelin Guide announcements. The Michelin Guide is the definitive ranking of the world’s best restaurants – and chefs can work their entire careers, chasing that elusive three-star ranking.

The little red book came out just last week, and Hong Kong earned a whopping 63 stars this year. And even more exciting? Many of them are right near Lan Kwai Fong. Read on to find out where to eat at the best restaurants in Hong Kong, as voted on by The Michelin Guide. And don’t forget to check out the full list for Hong Kong and Macau here

The Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong

While it’s a little far away from us here in Lan Kwai Fong, the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is definitely worth going to. Take your pick of Michelin-starred restaurants, they have three! Lung King Heen, the world’s first three-starred Cantonese restaurant maintained it’s ranking, while newly opened Sushi Saito entered the book for the first time with two stars. Caprice, the over-the-top (in a good way!) French restaurant re-gained its three-star status under chef Guillaume Galliot.

Amber

Perhaps Hong Kong’s most iconic restaurant, Amber maintained it’s two-star status for the upcoming year. Pity you won’t be able to eat there for a while, the restaurant is under construction for the next few months. We can’t wait to see what Culinary Director Richard Ekkebus has planned for the restaurant next!

The Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

Head to the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong for old school elegance and a taste of Michelin-starred excellence. Head over for yum cha at the one-starred Man Wah, a beautiful restaurant that straddles elegant and playful, and come back for diner at Pierre, Pierre Gagnaire’s two-starred pied-a-terre in Hong Kong or the one-starred Mandarin Grill + Bar.

H Queen’s

When H Queen’s opened earlier this year, we knew it would be good. But we didn’t know it would be this good. The art and lifestyle hub is home to two phenomenal restaurants that each brought home stars in their first year: Arbor and Écriture, with one and two stars respectively. The former is a beautiful Mediterranean oasis while the latter is a vision of minimalism helmed by chef Maxime Gilbert.

Arcane

Arcane is back in the guide for the second year in a row, maintaining their one-star status. If you haven’t had a chance to try this On Lam street gem, hurry hurry! Chef owner Shane Osborn became an international favourite when he debuted on Netflix’s The Final Table, so we’re sure reservations will be hard to come by.

Duddell’s

The only thing better than delicious dim sum, is when it’s served in the most luscious surroundings. Duddell’s isn’t your average restaurant – it’s a bonafide art museum, and this one-starred spot comes complete with its own ‘Art Manager’. The menu here features traditional Cantonese dishes made with luxurious ingredients. Grab your crew and give it a try this weekend.

Kashiwaya Hong Kong

At Kashiwaya, it’s not about glitz or glamour – just honest-to-goodness exceptional food. The chef of this two-starred kaiseki restaurant worked for over 20 years at the original Kashiwaya in Osaka, before he came to Hong Kong to open the new branch. Most of the ingredients (even the water!) are flown in for Japan so you can get that incredibly fresh taste without having to hop on a plane.

New Punjab Club

One of Black Sheep Restaurants’ latest openings – New Punjab Club took Hong Kong by storm when they opened. Showing the city a different way to serve food, a Punjabi way. The recipes here are old-school, as is the vibe, but the service is oh-so-modern and sharp. We love it, and we’re glad Michelin does too: the restaurant entered the guide with one-star, and it might just be the first Punjabi restaurant to have made it in the little red book!

VEA Restaurant & Lounge

The Grand Lisboa Hotel

While those are some of the mouth-watering options around us in Lan Kwai Fong, there are some must-visit restaurants across the bridge in Macau. The Grand Lisboa Hotel is one of the few places in the world to house seven Michelin-stars, and they’ve kept their rankings from last year, which is a feat in itself. In fact, the hotel is home to two of the SAR’s three three-starred restaurants: Robuchon au Dome, led by chef Julien Tongourian, and The Eight Restaurant, under the care of chef Joseph Tse. The Kitchen, the hotel’s modern steakhouse has been awarded one star for the last five consecutive years.

Morpheus at City of Dreams

Once you’ve had your fill at The Grand Lisboa, head over to Morpheus at City of Dream to experience Alain Ducasse at Morpheus. The two-star French restaurant is listed in the guide as being “top class comfortable” and one of “our most delightful places”. It’s also delicious, but that’s no surprise—chef Ducasse is one of the greatest in the world. His first outpost in Macau is helmed by chef Pierre Marty.
