Dim sum for lunch followed by Chinese and contemporary Japanese food in the evening, but it’s the after dark action that counts.

Dining room at Dragon-I, Central, hong-kong

Dragon-I Restaurant Review

: Ultra-exclusive and known for an especially airtight VIP area called the Red Room, this is the Hong Kong after-dark address that attracts major stars passing through town, especially every Wednesday, aka Models’ Night. Local celebs are as much a fixture as the Chinese birdcages swinging from the high ceilings. Owner Gilbert Yeung, who has gone on to make a name for himself as Hong Kong’s nightlife impresario, hired Parisian interiors goddess India Mahdavi to create a modern fantasy of silk lanterns, mood lighting, warm earth tones and circular velvet banquettes in the public area, also called the Playground. Getting past the sumo-size bodyguards at night requires a great look or the right connections, but the all-you-can-eat dim sum lunch is well priced, extensive and open to all. Steamed pork dumplings may sound too classic for this funky venue, but expect to order at least one more round of these fluffy ones. The same can be said for the vegetarian dim sum as well as the fried bites. The dinner menu expands to contemporary Chinese and lighter Japanese food. Serious foodies tend to dine elsewhere first then come here to work it off to the tunes of resident and visiting DJs. Those who do come to dine at night should reserve before 9 p.m., when the transformation from dinner to dance floor gets underway.
