Had dinner on New Year's day with some friends and found the food to be very nice and refined. Portions are small for the price you pay but all were of great quality. They were also very attentive to our son which was nice.

Good food with nice service and great produce cooked with amazing technique. Do you research as many of the top dishes have to be preordered and are meant to be shared.

I had a dinner with family at this restaurant. Food was tasty ; in particular the crab dish with chinese wine. Servers are very polite, helpful and patient to explain and provide details on the dishes. Very pricey but worth a try!

Definitely smart casual. I like to look smart when I go to a lovely restaurant. I also think it shows some respect to the host.

Cantonese cuisine is light and delicate, and strives to bring out the original flavors of food. The foremost element of good food is the use of the finest and freshest ingredients. To us, local produce is an excellent choice. Chickens and pigs are raised locally in the New Territories. They taste great because they are fed with good quality forage and slaughtered daily. A number of old-style condiment stores continue to adopt traditional ways to produce superb first extract soy sauce in its purest and freshest form, and hand craft beancurd sheets with strong bean taste. A small number of local fishermen are persistently sailing out during the early hours to the South China Sea to catch live fishes and shrimps. In places like Yuen Long, there are a substantial number of vegetable farmers working diligently on their fields. At The Chairman, we have all along tried our best to acquire these freshest among the freshest ingredients, although their prices are slightly higher.
