REVIEW

Ah Yat Harbour View

Located on the 29th floor of Tsim Sha Tsui’s iSquare mall, the most salient attraction of Ah Yat Harbor View is the 180-degree panoramic view of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbor.  However, there are many restaurants in Hong Kong with notable views; the feature that makes Ah Yat Harbor View among the best its is remarkable and consistent Cantonese cuisine, served by an attentive and professional staff.

Yeung Koon Yat, who also owns The Forum, is most well-known for his abalone and, indeed, you should be sure and order it at Ah Yat Harbor View.  But be sure also to venture beyond it.  Poached Chinese cabbage with almond cream, a dish we did not expect to like, was a revelation, the cream impossibly sweet and rich.  In increasing desperation as it disappeared, we resorted to practically licking the bowl much to our embarrassment.  Barbecued pork accompanied with a deep fried Vietnamese spring roll was full of flavor and perfectly cooked. Fried rice with shrimps and barbecued pork had a crispness that is rarely attained by cheaper, often soggier versions. 

The décor is attractive – well-spaced tables and an undulating golden ceiling that picks up the color of a large, beautiful silk screen along the wall. Relaxing music plays softly in the background as the setting sun paints the skyline with magical changing light until the nightly Symphony of Lights show begins.  It a reminder of why Hong Kong can be such an exciting place to dine, for it is a place where one can simultaneously experience both a deep serenity and the pulsing energy that animates the city.
