Dragon-I Restaurant Review:

Dragon-I is an ultra-exclusive nightspot, known for its claustrophobic VIP area, Red Room. Local celebs and international stars are as much a fixture as the oversize Chinese birdcages on the terrace. Hong Kong nightlife impresario and owner Gilbert Yeung hired Parisian interior goddess India Mahdavi to create a modish mix of silk lanterns, moody lighting and circular velvet banquettes in the public area, 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 more relaxed and well-priced, extensive and open to all. Steamed pork dumplings may sound too classic for this chic venue, but expect to order at least one more round of these fluffy morsels. The same can be said for the vegetarian dim sum as well as the fried bites, such as the crab claws with shrimp paste. Dinner offerings expand to contemporary Chinese and lighter Japanese food, and some Chinese desserts. Those who come to dine at night should reserve before 9 p.m., when the transformation from dinner to dance floor gets underway. Every Wednesday is Models’ Night, with tunes provided by resident and visiting DJs.
