T.Dining by Hong Kong Tatler - - Cantonese -

Above & Be­yond breaks the gen­eral adage that restau­rants with a great view tend not to be very good at any­thing else. Lo­cated at the top floor of Ho­tel Icon, the perch en­sures that guests get a panoramic spread of city lights dur­ing din­ner time at the restau­rant. The din­ing space may be elon­gated and nar­row, but the es­tab­lish­ment lets their menu prove their wor­thi­ness as one of Hong Kong’s finest Chi­nese restau­rants. Can­tonese dishes fare well with mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tion, with nov­elty in­gre­di­ents adding a de­light­ful sur­prise. Crispy five-spiced sliced An­gus beef brisket is served warm as an ap­pe­tiser; the thin but ten­der brisket packs a punch in flavour but is not over­pow­ered with spices. The fine-din­ing restau­rant is pop­u­lar for business gath­er­ings and dim sum lunch, but it also serves an after­noon set fea­tur­ing treats in­spired by in­ter­na­tional cuisines. The wine list is well-con­structed with abun­dant wine by-the-glass se­lec­tions. Come for an early din­ner, which is the best time to catch both the sun­set and the city’s sky­line with lined with lights.
