If you would like to have a fine Chinese or seafood meal at at a Michelin-starred restaurant, yet pay middling (even low) prices in Hong Kong, you can go to the Michelin-starred Lei Gardens restaurants (2012 guide) listed below. There are ten locations in the city and town areas of Hong Kong, and nine below are Michelin starred! Lei Garden Mong Kok received two Michelin stars!

You can have a several course meal with friends for about 140 HKD or 18 USD per person. You can enjoy a variety of seafood including grouper, shrimp, and lobster as well as Cantonese-style dishes and dim sum.

The restaurant chain is best known for delicious dim sum. It is also known for placing people in places foreign tourists are likely to be such as the IFC Mall in Central above the Hong Kong Station and Central Station and Elements Mall in Kowloon above the Kowloon Station.

Michelin Stars

The Michelin Guide is a fine-food ratings guide based in France. For the Lei Garden restaurant chain to have so many starred restaurants is unusual in the world. No other chain of restaurants in Hong Kong comes close to their record.

2 Stars: Lei Garden (Mong Kok)

Hong Kong only has 10 two-star restaurants, and this one recently received a second star. For comparison, the whole US only has about 14 two-star restaurants. This Lei Garden’s dim sum was called the best in Hong Kong in a 2012 Wall Street Journal article.

Perhaps a place to go after shopping in the Ladies' Market.
