They are known for Roast Goose. They received One Michelin star in 2011 and have been around since 1942.
They have a multi floor dining room. Special super expensive menus are available to those on the VIP level and Private club. We dined in the 4th floor VIP room, which costs and extra 10%.

Other Buffets: Conrad Nicolini’s Sunday Brunch Buffet, Harbourside Buffet,, JW Marriott Hong Kong, Tiffen Buffet Grand Hyatt Hong Kong.

Decor, Vibe – Modern, clean Asian decor. Our semi private room had only 2 tables. Mostly bigger parties with lots of business people dining.

Picks:

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 17

Roast Goose (HK$240 Half) was huge. Very good juices, skin, and tons of meat.

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 18

Tiger Prawns – (HK$198) were fresh, HUGE, and were sauteed with a little soy sauce and green onions. Their meat was really sweet, tender, and juicy.

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 21

Yeung Chow Fried Rice (HK$60) was sold by the bowl, simple but very good. Super big shrimp and quality ingredients. Better than what we have back in the US.

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 16

Barbecue Pork – Char Siu (HK$120) was tender, flavorful, and swimming in juices. Again better than US versions.

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 24

Red Bean Dessert (HK$22) had lots of different kinds of beans and other items. Not too sweet. Very Good.

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 13

Thousand year old Preserved Eggs (HK$25) were 6 pieces of the classic appetizer dish. Very strong. This is an acquired taste. It was served with super flavorful, meaty pickled ginger.

OK:
Gai Lan (HK$77) were simple but perfectly cooked greens.

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 25

Walnut Dessert (HK$22) was way too sweet. Nothing was inside it.

Yung Kee Restaurant Hong Kong 23

Egg Custard tarts – Dan Tat (HK$21) had 3 pieces of slightly above average pastries. Still better than most in the US.

Pans:
None

No surprise that Yung Kee Restaurant had very good service in the VIP room. The 10% premium pays for something. While food was very good, it did not reach the top tier places like Lung King Heen or Lei Garden IFC. We would not hesitate coming back or recommending this restaurant.
