From three to one, we’ve got a full list of restaurants in Hong Kong with Michelin stars. But, before you unfold your napkin, it’s worth mentioning that not all of Hong Kong’s food critics fell in love with the Hong Kong and Macau Michelin Guide. Check out what they had to say in our review of the Hong Kong and Macau Michelin Guide.
Hong Kong has some of the best food in the world; established as the the world leader in Cantonese cooking and home to Asia's most envied European restaurants. Food is a passion here so it's no surprise that the city has bagged 60 Michelin stars across more than 200 restaurants. We've tried to select the best from the Michelin list to feature; taking advice from discerning food critics, popularity with local diners and our own knife and fork research.
We've also tried to prove that best doesn't have to mean most expensive.The correlation between price and quality is notoriously fickle and you only need to look at the world's cheapest Michelin star in Tim Ho Wan to know that you don't always have to break the bank to find incredible food. It’s unlikely that you’ll escape from any of these restaurants feeling like you got a bargain but we have tried to weed out the truly overpriced locations. Heavy price tags should be expected, but it’s only fair to shell out top dollar, if you get top food in return; those are the restaurants we’re recommending.
We've also provided a little variety. Michelin restaurants might bring to mind penguin dressed waiters, starched tablecloths and hushed dining rooms - and these are certainly present on the list, but there are also restaurants with a little more innovation. Inside you’ll certainly find the best Cantonese cooking in the world - including truly outstanding Dim Sum - and celebrity chefs but you’ll also find matchless western cuisine and intimate private kitchens.
