The reason why Yuet Heung Restaurant in Hong Kong is one of the top Chinese restaurants is because of its signature Chicken dish.

The xiaolongbao at Taiwanese chain restaurant Din Tai Fung are arguably the most delectable soup-filled pork dumplings in the world, with delicately fine skin and succulent, juicy meat. We also love the flavourful Taiwanese pork chop, pleasing Zhejiang style zongzi sticky rice dumplings and the spicy Sichuan wontons in a rich, peaty sauce of smoked chili. It's definitely a solid four star Chinese restaurant chain in Hong Kong.
