Directions to Yung Kee Resturant
Located close to the Peak Tram , this establishment has been in business for over 40 years and can seat over 1,000 people. They aim for a very grand, red carpet glamour of Chinese luxury dining, with a glitzy entranceway complete with gigantic two-story gold sign and classic glass double doors. Then the boisterous atmosphere and rude, indifferent and even scowling-faced staff reveals this façade. It all comes with the fame of this place; it’s a packaged deal. Inside, the tables are packed close together on the normal floors, which creates a bit of a loud atmosphere, despite the elegant, traditional décor. All things considered, the cuisine over the years has adjusted to foreigners’ palates and wallets.
The restaurant itself is actually divided, general dining from the first to the third floors, formal, luxury dining on the fourth floor, and then a special VIP club floor for private rooms. Although the basic menu is the same, the quality (and price!) between the ordinary dining floors and luxury/VIP floors is worlds apart.
The restaurant has two kitchens, one for roasts (which are displayed in the window), and one for everything else. Although they charge HKD 11 for tea, it includes half of a traditional Thousand-year-old egg with ginger, which is best eaten together, and is delicious.
Favorite dishes include their “Flying Roast Goose” so named because tourists love it and buy one to take away, but beware: the quality of the goose depends on which floor you’re on – if you’re a tourist, chances are it will be leaner and tougher. Unfair, but that’s how it is, as they assume you won’t know the difference. Other dishes include Yung Kee beef brisket in plain broth, Braised Pomelo Skin with Shrimp, with high-end options being Braised Supreme Bird's Nest, Braised Superior Shark's Fin in Brown Sauce, Yung Kee's Imperial Abalone with Wine. Avoid the fried rice, Far Charred Char Siu, as well as any kind of plain vegetables.
Expect to spend about HKD 150 – 250 for lunch, HKD 300 – 500 for dinner.
Local tip: they deliver! Reservations accepted selectively.
Hours: Open daily, 11:00AM-23:30
