THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Whampoa Club Restaurant Review

: This basement restaurant has a glass ceiling---diners look up through a pond stocked with goldfish. A moody, sexy ambience is achieved with dark wood screens, midnight blue curtains, and hanging birdcages with trapped lights. The business lunch is probably the best deal here; try the all-you-can-eat dim sum buffet. Dinner is a much more elaborate affair, and much pricier. Chef Jereme Leung's strategy is to take traditional Beijing cuisine, add a little something special, and voila. The results can be mixed, and likely depend on your palate. Soy-braised pomfret filets usually please, as do the Australian beef strips in honey pepper sauce. Vegetarian fare is mostly mushroom- and tofu-oriented while the desserts are just plain peculiar. Ice creams come flavored with spring onion and Chinese rice wine, while it takes a sense of adventure to try the pea custard cheesecake. Service is professional.
