“Excellent experience.”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

I like Chinese food though Im not qualified to get technical when it comes to judging it. I think they have great food, I certainly enjoyed every single dish served. However the view is simply breathtaking. Must go!

“Iconic Place for Chinese at the Mandarin”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

After drinks below at the Captain's Bar, make your way to the top floor for dinner at Man Wah. All of the usual dishes in a very hip setting makes this a place that shouldn't be missed. It's quite enough in the dining room that you can easily enjoy dinner with friends or clients.

“Great dim sum with a view”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

As expats we are familiar with quite a few places to have dim sum in Hong Kong and our recent dim sum lunch at Man Wah will remain as a remarkable memory when we leave this great city. There are about 10-12 items on the dim sum menu. The 2 of shared about 6-7 and every one of them was delicious. The jasmine tea was one of the best we ever had. Man Wah is on the 25th floor of the Mandarin Hotel and as you enjoy your delicious dimsum you get a view of the Central area. The service was the usual excellent Mandarin quality. In Southeast Asia our best hotel stays and dining experiences have been in the Mandarin Hotels. Make sure to make a reservation at Man Wah. We were lucky to be able get a table on the day we called. You pay about 30 % more at this restaurant for dimsum than you would at a more down to earth place but every penny is worth it considering the service, the quality of the ingredients, the cleanliness, and the ambiance. This is a good place to have lunch if you want to go shopping in the Central area.

“Very friendly service and lovely view”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

Went there with my wife for her birthday. The highlight dish was the pork neck which we had as an apetizer, just fantastic. The rest of the food was good, nothing out of the ordinary. The staff is extremely nice and friendly and the view is not bad. Would recommend for a romantic dinner or a business luch maybe. It is next to the hotel bar lounge, so it's good if you want to eat and have drinks later (as we sure did).

“Very enjoyable meal”
Reviewed 14 December 2011

We had a very enjoyable meal at the Cantonese restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental hotel. This restaurant seemed to be highly recommended here and on various forums/blogs and it was indeed very good. We arrived slightly early and were invited to wait at the bar outside. The bar has a great view of the harbour from the 25th floor and I was happy to find they were serving Krug by the glass (one of the few times I was tempted away from tea on the trip). After our drinks we were escorted to the restaurant and everything was impressively smooth and professional. The dining room itself is wonderfully opulent.

Again there were numerous highlight dishes including the excellent Tiger prawn, bamboo shoot dumplings with translucent and delicate wrapping and great flavour and texture. I also really liked the Conpoy and summer spinach dumplings, the summer spinach was full of flavour and the conpoy was only a background note adding complexity rather than being the focus.

Shanghainese soup dumpling, minced pork and hairy crab mousse - Liked the presentation of this with its own basket and tray. I liked the richness of the soup component, though I couldn't really taste the crab over the pork with the rest. Barbecued pork belly was delicious with perfectly crispy skin and the Crispy Ka Mei chicken carved tableside and with bones removed was one of the better crispy chicken dishes on the trip.

Chicken spring rolls were fine, but not especially memorable and the Deep fried crab claw with minced shrimp was one of the weaker dishes, it was acceptable but I'd order something else next time.

The Toffee apples for dessert were great bites which had that crunchy-chewy contrasting outer layer from the glaze and batter, with some freshness from the apple inside. Double boiled pear, chun bei, tangerine tea was the final dish - The pear was great, offering little resistance when cut but not being mushy. The tangerine tea was an interesting combination that I think worked very well.

Excluding the pre-lunch drinks it was HK$1350.

Overall I was impressed and would be very happy to go back. The elevated rating of 1* Michelin is well deserved based on this single visit.
