One Harbour Road Restaurant Review

: Décor inside this airy, multilevel Chinese restaurant with crisp white table linens evokes the Crown Colony in the 1930s, while all-glass walls confer jaw-dropping views of Hong Kong’s decidedly twenty-first-century skyline. This was among Hong Kong’s first Chinese restaurants to eliminate MSG from its dishes, which makes it a favorite of visiting foreigners. Well turned out servers are happy to guide diners through the ever-changing dim sum menus. Standouts include lobster dumplings and baked pork buns with sesame. Rice flour rolls, although messy to eat, are worth it. More adventurous diners should order local favorites like shark's fin and meat dumplings in broth; however, the steamed chicken feet in black bean sauce may not appeal to Western palates. Classic Chinese mains fill the extensive menu and desserts are equally notable, such as the sweet Mandarin honey pudding. While most opt for traditional Chinese tea like jasmine to accompany their meal, those who wish to quench their thirst with something more substantial won't lack for choice. The wine list ranges from old- to new-world bottles, with both red and white available by the glass at price points from moderate to more expensive. Chinese wine is also offered for those who want to sample the local flavors, as are beer, cocktails and saké, regular and sparkling. Reserve well in advance, especially for dim sum lunch on Saturdays, Sundays and Chinese holidays.
