Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 24 March 2021 via mobile

My colleagues and I have been working hard for COVID-19. As the number of cases dropped and stabilized, it's time to reward ourselves with a sumptuous meal. So I organized dinner at Man Ho, with recently awarded 1-Michelin Star Chef Jayson. I read about his...new dish: pan fried fish maw with almond chicken broth and specifically requested this dish. We were so happy when the first dish was served: baked toast with sea urchin and mango. Fresh & sweet was Hokkaido sea urchin. First time eating sea urchin with mango and thick crunchy toast, and they matched nicely. Next was wok fried mantis prawn fillet with crispy garlic and chilli. The dish was so fragrant. Only slightly spicy, the freshness of the prawn was enhanced by the crispy garlic and chilli. I surely love eating the mantis prawn without the shell. The mantis prawn fillet was large and pan fried just right, to be eaten with knife & fork. The third dish was poached sliced lobster in consomme. All were amazed that the raw lobster flesh could be "cooked" by the hot lobster bisque, yet, we could immediately drink the lobster bisque. Chef Jayson must have made precise calculations to enable dual perfection. Then pan fried fish maw with almond chicken broth was served. The slice of fish maw was browned slightly on both sides. Almond chicken broth was poured over it. The fish maw was chewy and went well with the almond chicken broth. The kale and fresh lily bulbs made the presentation attractive and they're also delicious. The fifth dish was braised South African dried abalone with black mushroom and winter melon. My friends who ate this dish the first time applauded to all 3 layers plus the Japanese rice for them to finish the tasty abalone sauce. Next was fried rice rolls with beef onglet. I love eating beef and the beef onglets were satisfying. This dish was wonderfully fragrant when brought near our table, demonstrating that the chef must have used the wok well in order to bring out the flavour and smell of the beef! Bravo! Dessert duo were pistachio cream with milk foam (cold & creamy with chopped pistachio sprinkled on top) and deep fried purple sweet potato pastry. A nice finale for a great meal! My friends and I enjoyed all the dishes. It's a fulfilling dining experience which made our day! Chef Jayson and his team are surely worth more than 1-Michelin Star!More

This Cantonese restaurant was awarded Michelin 1-star status in 2021, located on 3/F JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong in Admiralty. Arriving early on the night, we were the first table seated in the main dining room. There were a few VIP rooms on the side...catering for bigger groups. The décor is nice, with a luxurious yet relaxing setting. There are ample spaces between tables offering good privacy. The chandeliers in the high ceiling provides a starry experience, and there is also a tea bar on one side, featuring good varieties of tea from different parts of the world. After serving a welcome drink, the amuse bouche was Sliced Pickled Cucumber with Vinegar Jelly. It might sound simple, the chef had thinly sliced the cucumber and left a bit of attached, creating a single piece of cucumber of stacked slices. Beautifully presented, the vinegar is made into jelly and got the right level of sourness to bring refreshing palate and a great appetizer to start our meal. We began with the soups. I opted for Hot and Sour Soup with Shredded Sea Cucumber, Duck Blood and Peppercorn 海參鴨紅椒麻酸辣羹 ($188). As a big fan of hot and sour soup, this one however was not my favorite because of its numbing Sichuan peppercorns note but without the intensity of the hot and sour elements to balance. The quality of ingredients was good though. My wife had Fresh Fish Soup with Fish Maw, Clams, Dried Tiger Prawn and Bean Curd Sheet 艇皇花膠鮮魚湯 ($268). The fish soup was prepared using three different types of fish, and then the chef added clams to further increase the umami taste. The dried prawn was very large in size, with the bean curd sheet adding bite but also leveraging the texture to absorb the soup. A smart move and no wonder this one was a signature of the restaurant. Best to order this instead of the hot and sour soup in my opinion. The starter was Stir-fried Frog Legs with Soy Sauce 醬油田雞腿 ($228). This for sure was the best dish on the night, with the meaty frog legs wonderfully seasoned, tender and bouncy on texture. The soy sauce gave a nice savory note and the additions of some spring onion further enhanced the overall flavors of the dish. Definitely worth to try it out. Coming to the main courses, first was Sauteed Garoupa Fillets with Asparagus, Chives and Shredded Yunnan Ham 白蘆筍腿絲油泡星斑球 ($618). As the restaurant had run out of white asparagus, the green ones were used instead. The garoupa fillet was very good, large and thick in size. The chef cleverly seasoned lightly to highlight the original great taste of the fresh fillet. The asparagus was tender, trimmed away any hard fiber and so no residue on biting. I guessed the ham would help to add an extra dimension of savory to the dish, so it was a shame it was forgotten. Next was Signature Deep-fried Crispy Chicken 萬豪脆皮炸子雞 ($348 half). The chicken was a local-raised one, tender and not fat, with the skin crispy to showcase the cooking skills of the chef. However, it was a bit over-seasoned for me. After adding the lemon juice provided it helped to tune down the saltiness better. The main issue was the way the chicken was chopped up. Unlike most other restaurants, the section around the thigh were cut in big pieces, and cutting along the bone instead of perpendicular, which exposed the bone marrow and created more sharp edges, making it difficult to eat, and easy to cut your mouth. The restaurant definitely needs to pay attention. Then came Braised Pomelo Peel with Dried Shrimp Roe 蝦籽柚皮 ($228). The pomelo peel was thick and had processed well to remove any hint of bitterness, fully absorbing the sauce which was of the right viscosity. The shrimp roe added the savory note and with the tender choi sum on the side, it was a nice dish overall. Coming to dessert I ordered Chilled Mango Cream with Sago and Pomelo 楊枝甘露 ($78). The mango cream was a bit thicker than my preference but still good. My wife had Double-boiled Peach Resin with Maca and Chickpeas 瑪卡雪蓮子燉桃膠 ($118) and it was decent as well. The restaurant had provided some treats, including Osmanthus Cake 桂花糕 and Golden Pastry Cookie 黃金酥. Both were decent in taste and a good wrap up for our dinner. Service was good, with the staff attentive, helping to change plates and pour tea as you would expect from a restaurant in a 5-star hotel. However, as I have written numerous times, I always found a big opportunity if the staff could share more the dishes when they were served, on the ingredients, cooking technique and such, which always made the food more interesting and appealing for customers. Unfortunately apart from the introduction of the fish soup, there were no attempt to do that for the other dishes. The bill was $2,094 after a 15% credit card discount. Fairly reasonable in price considering the location, service and food quality, I hope the restaurant would pay more attention to the comments I highlighted.More

So bad it left me questioning the robustness of the Michelin criteria... Long story short, I am going to share my experience briefly: 1)        We felt rushed. We arrived at 8pm, and ordered 5 dishes. The first two dishes were served one...by one, then all in the sudden, the waiter served the other three dishes in a short time… Even Worse a waiter served the dessert at 9:10pm while we were still savoring the food. (Not even clearing any plates away, a travel group meal???) I shared my feelings to your waiter, and your waiter said they had to do it because of the 10 pm curfew for restaurants. (Then set the last orders time at 7pm!) The service was so bad and the food got cold before we could finish them. Because of that, our mood was completely spoilt. We felt like we were having a group travel meal at your restaurant. 2)        There was no service at all. Not even refilling, clearing up the pates, etc. What’s the worst was there was no goodbye/ thank-you when we left. Omg.... Tell me, who want to pay HK$800 /head for this service ??More

We had very high hopes for the experience however I am afraid the overall service experience fell well short of my other Michellene star experiences in Hong Kong. While the serving staff were polite, I found them to be lacking in enthusiasm and distant and...excessively formal but I do understand different restaurants have different service styles. However, my disappointment goes far beyond this. For example, we ordered the duck and to my surprise it came ready carved on a cold plate. Even in mid-price point restaurants I have always had the duck carved at my table, sometimes the first few duck rolls were prepared for me. The issues continued with an overall inattentive service. When I placed the papers separating the pancakes on the table, they remined there for a good 15 mins, several servers walked past unaware. Even worse the hand wipes we used remained on the table for the entire meal. At this stage I was thought perhaps I should have different expectations of Chinese stared restaurants. However, it really crossed the mark of unacceptability when desert was served. There were food crumbs on the table and my dessert plate was placed by the server on top of the food crumbs. Be aware of what you are getting average food for the price but really not worth the money. Lacking service and overall experience that might be better in a group. Portly trained and unconfident staff that struggle with language if you are not a Canto speaker. They did reply to my complaint apologising and saying they would into it but no real concrete action suggested or specific response to my individual concerns.More

This is my 4th visit of the restaurant while this is the first visit after the restaurant is awarded Michelin 1 Star! I’m so happy for the head Chef Jayson Tang, he is definitely a talented young chef. I just want to highlight a few...dishes I.e. fish fillet with preserved vegetables, wok-fried mantis shrimp & the dessert Chinese bun. 1) The pan-fried fish fillet is made so well with the crispy fish skin soaked with the pickled veggies soup, it is so much different from the similar dish outside with oily soup served to maintain the sour taste from the pickled veggie soup. 2) the wok-fried mantis shrimp is definitely a surprising dish with the crispy garlic taste. The taste from the garlic is strong but you can still taste the freshness from the enormous-sized mantis shrimp. I am happy that they didn’t serve normal shrimp but the mantis shrimp. 3) It’s a tradition to serve Chinese bun for someone’s birthday in HK and the one they prepared for my mum’s birthday is a huge Chinese bun with 4 mini buns served along the side, it’s a super photogenic dish which my mum was so happy to take photos and forgot to eat the actual buns. Apart from the food itself, the service from the staff is extraordinary as always. You may say that it’s expectable for a 5-star hotel but I have to still praise the staffs there without taking that for granted. I am hoping to come for the 5th time already!!More

My foodie friends and I tried Chef Jayson's new tasting menu with wine pairing. First came deep fried mashed lobster & taro crispy block. The rich lobster & salted egg yolk filling and crispy outer layer went well with Taittinger champagne. Next dish was steamed...abalone with chrysanthemum. Needed to pretreat for 48 hours. A pot of chrysanthemum tea was poured on hot rocks inside a large clay pot and covered to "smoke" them further. Once uncovered, the aroma filled the restaurant. The fresh abalone had taste of Japanese bonito sauce, which was unique. The pairing sake was sweet. We were amazed by the jumbo Hokkaido scallop. Seared on top, the meaty jumbo scallop was evenly hot and tender. Carrot sauce and leaf-like kale perfected the presentation and taste. Next served was garoupa broth with mandarin peel and lemon leaf. Refreshing and delicious. Sauteed Miyazaki wagyu beef balanced by green peppers and St. George's mushrooms which absorbed beef essence and fat. Another highlight was braised South African dried abalone stacked on sliced black mushroom and winter melon. Chef Jayson provided a small bowl of Japanese rice to eat with the sauce. My friends loved the red wine pairing for this dish, Chateau Laforge, St. Emilio, Bordeaux 2001. For dessert, Chef Jayson added salted egg yolk into creme brulee to give it a Cantonese twist. Loved the dessert wine pairing. An enjoyable and lovely dinner. Highly recommended!More

JW Marriott's Chinese restaurant is always one of the best in town. Man Ho, now under a young executive chef, has many to offer. The menu is a blend of tradition and innovation. Food is top-notch with a touch of Japanese presentation. Duck tongue is...a light starter. Baked crab shell with crab and lobster meat is fresh and solid. Sweet and sour pork, a creative remake of the Cantonese delicacy, is a must. Braised pomelo peel is rich and flavorful. Noodles with prawns is tasty and a bit spicy. Decor is cozy and spacious. Service is excellent. Price is upscale for sure but not excessive. In general, a very outstanding option.More

This is my 3rd dinner visit already at Man Ho Chinese Restaurant & the head chef Jayson Tang surprised me again! The signature Cha Siu didn’t disappoint me as always and the wagyu beef is so soft & juicy. I don’t eat abalone much usually...but I find the two types of abalone on the menu surprised me a lot, especially the dried abalone with black mushroom dish! I am drooling while typing the review. The baked chicken and morel mushroom rice is so nice so nice, even all of us are 80% full already; I thought that the rice should be dry but then the moist of the rice with strong mushroom flavor makes me want to eat even more. Last but not least, the salted egg yolk creme brûlée is the highlight of the whole menu. I never tried something similar on earth, it has a really nice balance between western and Chinese cruise which shows the creativity and skill of the chef team. No joke but I am definitely coming back for my 4th visit very soon!! Chef Jayson is awesome!More
