While the flavors of the modern/fusion Thai dishes are good here, I found it strangely disappointing that the same dishes tasted better at the now-closed Hong Kong branch of the restaurant.

Invitation dinner to celebrate Umberto Bombana being awarded the Diners Club Lifetime Achievement Award for Asia.

One of my better meals at this fine restaurant, which has always delivered tasty dishes even if I have only felt it worthy of 3 stars only once.

Lung King Heen has always been good but never great, catering more to tourists and people ticking off a list. Mom was visiting Hong Kong for the first time in years, so I took the parents out for an introduction.

As usual, the meal was decent but not really special the way a 3-star should be.

Celebrating gf's birthday at one of our favorite restaurants. Richard Ekkebus never disappoints, even when he's not in the kitchen.

There's a very indulgent caviar tart to kick off the dinner. The octopus, langoustine, and other dishes are good, too.

Our second dinner here in a month. Ordered à la carte this time. Dishes were solid but I was surprised they weren't better, considering that Xavier Borie had worked for Robuchon for a long time.

Very thankful that the restaurant has kept many of it classics, such as preparing crêpes Suzette table-side.
