Your out-of-town family are visiting Hong Kong and you can’t figure out where to take them. Perhaps this calls for a modern Chinese restaurant to prove your ample wages, with a touch of traditionality to remind them of home. The answer is Lei Garden.

Regarded as a “celebration restaurant” by many Hong Kong families, the restaurant chain was established in 1973 to serve Hong Kong with elegant and traditional Cantonese-style plates, dim sum, tonic soups, and fresh seafood.

A total of 11 branches dot Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and New Territories, welcoming anxious sons and daughters manned with credit cards to treat their visiting parents or discerning cousins, aunties, and uncles to a meal to prove their life progress.

Make sure you order Lei Garden specialities of supreme fish maw (HKD298 pp), pan-fried Hida beef (HKD368/pc), stewed bird’s nest (HKD240 pp), or the deluxe abalone set (HKD530 pp) to prove you’re all grown up now.
