Lung King Heen - Hong Kong - review

Name: Lung King Heen

Address: Hong Kong
8 Finance Street Central

(852) 3196-8880
Food: Modern Cantonese

Average price: $48HKD - $1080HKD.

Complimentary: Preserved vegetables

These were Ok.


We ordered: National Day Dinner Menu (meat and vegetarian versions) - $1080HK ($160AUD) each for the meat version.

Lung King Heen Appetiser Combination - crispy suckling pig, barbecued pork with honey, fried scallop with string bean

Both R and G found this starter, along with the various sauces, very tasty and well executed.

Crispy taro dumplings  - $40

These were absolutely divine! I have never had taro before but these crispy parcels with their soft center were delicious.

Braised Shark's Fin with Fresh Crab Meat

A few drops of black vinegar was added to this, which R said turned this classic dish into something amazing, He requested more vinegar as he said it really just brought the dish to another level.

Vegetable soup - $130HKD

Nice, mellow soup. Some of the mushrooms had a rather odd spongy texture though.

Simmered King Prawn in Supreme Broth

Sautéed Shredded Potato in Vegetarian X.O. Chilli Sauce  -$80

I could have eaten an entire bucket of this. No joke. I loved this dish, the texture and the complex flavours were fantastic. I need to get my hands on a bottle of that sauce...

Braised Abalone Cube with Star Grouper Fillet in Supreme Oyster Sauce

Braised Fresh Tofu Sheet with Egg Whites- $160Hk

The texture, which was akin to very runny egg whites, didn't appeal to me, it felt too slimy on the tongue. The tofu beneath though was lovely.

Wok-Fried Wagyu Beef Cubes with Lily bulbs and green peppers in Black bean sauce

R thought this was fairly average.

Sauteed vegetables with garlic - $120HKD

I love Chinese broccoli so this simply serving of lightly cooked Gai Lan with garlic was delicious to me.

Fried rice with fresh crab, mushrooms, and vegetables

Fried rice with mushrooms and vegetables - $80HKD

Simply a good bowl of fried rice.

Chilled mango and sago cream with Pomelo

Really refreshing and lightly sweet dish with chewy tapioca pearls.

Petit fours - red bean jelly and lotus seed pastries.

The triangles had a nice puffed, flaky pastry and sweet paste, very enjoyable.


G, an Italian, said this tasted like 'an arse fart'.

Drinks: Evian x 2 - $190hk

Cost: $3308HKD +10% service charge.

Service: Great. Food came out at a reasonable pace, they accommodated me with a vegetarian degustation menu without any fuss at all, we were provided with moist hand towels and finger bowls and the wait staff were efficient and spoke decent English.

Atmosphere: Elegant but simple with a focus on harbour views. The decor is a mixture of neutral woods and glass with plenty of spacing between tables. The vibe was quite relaxed and most patrons weren't very dressed up.

Parking: Limited - take a taxi, they are very cheap, otherwise there are trains and ferries.


Hours: Mon-Sat 12pm-2:30pm, 6pm-10:30pm; Sun 11:30am-3pm, 6pm-10:30pm

Would I return: Yes, great food, good service and reasonably priced for a three Michelin star restaurant.


  1. Arse fart? AHAHAHAHAHHAA....

    Glad you had a fairly enjoyable meal! I really should have gone there and it's been a major regret ever since...

  2. I feel that LKH is a one off place. I don't think I will go there again even though the service is good and the food is good.
