The Chinese restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui’s most luxurious new hotel is a specialist in Shunde cuisine

Tatler Says

The Legacy House is the flagship restaurant of Rosewood Hong Kong, which sits on the land that was was acquired by the late Dr Cheng Yu-tung—grandfather to Rosewood CEO Sonia Cheng—back in the 1970s. From the windows of the restaurant, you can gaze down at the bustle of the Avenue of Stars below, while behind you the house music pumps steadily over the chatter of diners. The whoosh and clatter of woks can be heard from across the dining room, stirring our cravings for the hot, flame-licked dishes that characterise much of southern Chinese cuisine. An open station next to the bar showcases the day’s fresh catches from Sai Kung. For a restaurant paying tribute to the patriarch of the family, the initial impression can be jarring—the space is ambiently lit, tables are closely packed, and the atmosphere is somewhere between Aqua and Mott 32 during a mid-week dinner service. The menu is where the roots of the Cheng family come into play, with sections that highlight the Shunde specialties of the Pearl River Delta region. Traditional dishes using fresh and preserved seafood dominate the first few pages, and it’s highly recommended you pick and choose a few items from this section.
