A longtime standout eatery on Hong Kong’s scene, this Cantonese pioneer takes up residence in the Grade-II-listed St Thomas’ Church, in the shadow of London landmarks the Shard and London Bridge. Head of the kitchen Daren Liew, a chef with 20 years’ experience, crafts traditional fare such as the supreme lobster noodle, truffle-roasted black cod with lily bulb and a Nameko mushroom in Chinese aged vinegar, and the restaurant’s esteemed Peking duck (served whole or in half). Wash those oriental delights down with various wines or cocktails amid refined surroundings; architect Michaelis Boyd has blended old with new. Echoes of Queen Anne architecture and a 1960s Hong Kong tea rooms meet in striking green tiles and geometric floor patterns, all adding to the aura in this cathedral of great food and drinks.
