Tin Lung Heen pro­vides a text­book les­son in Can­tonese cui­sine—fresh­ness, light­ness and some­times, barely-there flavour, which come to­gether beau­ti­fully in its reper­toire of clas­sic roasted and bar­be­cued meats, soups, stir fries and steamed dishes. Sim­mered Chi­nese vegeta­bles re­tain a sat­is­fy­ing crisp­ness, char siu is lean yet ten­der and a sim­ple off-menu wok-fried spot­ted garoupa fil­let with soy let the qual­ity in­gre­di­ents shine. It’s what you would ex­pect from such a rar­efied es­tab­lish­ment, perched more than 450 me­tres above sea level, atop the Ritz-Carl­ton ho­tel. This means sky-high views through dou­ble-height win­dows of west­ern and north­ern Hong Kong. The flashy dé­cor may not be to ev­ery­one’s taste, but it’s one to put on the list for date nights and cel­e­bra­tions. Ser­vice is well-oiled, with staff able to guide novices and the knowl­edge­able alike through the menu. The ex­ten­sive wine list leans heav­ily to­wards renowned Ital­ian and French es­tates, and red more than white. A se­lec­tion of pre­mium Chi­nese teas is avail­able for non-drinkers.
