Hong Kong 

Considered one of Hong Kong’s best Chinese fine dining establishments, Golden Leaf has been continually recognised for tis Cantonese cuisine as well as top-notch dim sum for 27 years. Housed within the Conrad hotel, the restaurant has garnered numerous awards over the years and proudly claims a Michelin star under its belt.

The décor of the outlet is your stereotypical high-end Chinese restaurant, adorned with lanterns, latticework screens and teak and rosewood furniture. In short, a typical place you’d find businessmen cutting deals as they dig into inventive dishes such as roasted suckling pig, prawns in Chinese wine and baked lobster with ginger.

Although priding itself on Cantonese cuisine, the Golden Leaf is perhaps more famously known for its dim sum, a staple tradtion in Hong Kong. The selections here are standard with siu mai, dumplings and barbequed meat, taking its place on the menu. Signature dishes include the shallow-fried crispy chicken and fresh crab claw, which is served whole and on a bed of fresh steamed egg white.

Open daily, 11.30am – 3pm; 6pm – 11pm, Lower Lobby Level, Conrad Hong Kong, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, conraddining.com/en/golden_leaf
