Yung Kee is an iconic Hong Kong institution, one of the first places we tried on arriving here, and a restaurant we would host visitors to the city when they came. It suffered a drawn-out legal battle between the children of its founder and then,...like the rest of Hong Kong, from the political turbulence and then Covid-closure of the city to visitors. Its third-generation leadership shut it down for a lengthy and pricey facelift, and as what was Asia's world city opens to the world again, we hoped for a great experience again. Sadly, though the restaurant looks gorgeous, when we arrived for our 6:30 pm reservation, only the goose of its signature roasted meats was available, and that underwhelmed when it arrived. Other dishes we ordered took so long to arrive that we canceled them. Staffing was insufficient for the half-full restaurant (something other city establishments are also enduring) and the service demonstrated the stresses that Hong Kong has yet to shake off. We hope that Yung Kee recovers its former mojo, but there's no need to rush to check it out.More

Yung Kee’s supreme cha siu is definitely a guilty pleasure. It’s well-marinated and retains the perfect balance of meat and fat. You need a bowl of rice or noodles to go with it to wash the grease down. Their roast goose signature dish is definitely...deserving of the hype. he plum dipping sauce goes really well with the meat and elevated it to the next level! I give it 5 stars and definitely would be BACK.More

I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the service and the food. The staff were very helpful and particularly recommended the traditional bread crab, which was an excellent choice. The meat was super juicy and went very well with the scallions and ginger. I...highly encourage anyone who's considering this restaurant to try it out.More

As someone who eats Cantonese barbecue frequently, I can tell you that this restaurant is a NO GO and a huge ripoff. I was looking for a cheap-ish place to eat at before my Muy Thai kickboxing class and I didn’t even get a chance...to look at the menu before I was thrust in the door and sat down at a table with a bunch of random people. I ordered two- choices of meat with rice, with roast goose and honey barbecue pork, one of my favorite dishes. My meal came and it was very disappointing. The goose was fatty and bony as could be, the pork was tough and had very little flavor. The portion was tiny. I really needed the fuel before the intense workout to come, and wasn’t expecting a snack like amount of food. The staff were abrupt and rude, when I asked for a small glass of water they said it was 22 DOLLARS EXTRA! For all this, I paid 115 dollars, the most I’ve EVER paid for a Cantonese bbq meal, and I’ve eaten at dozens of places. If you’re looking for real, authentic Cantonese barbecue where the staff are friendly, the prices are reasonable and the food is delicious (as it should be!), go to GoGo Goose in Repluse Bay, it’s my favorite restaurant in Hong Kong and I would recommend to anyone. As for this place, DO NOT GO! Avoid at all costs unless you want to pay a ridiculous sum of money for mediocre food. I will never be coming back!More

After shopping with my buddies, we chose a traditional restaurant, due to the coronavirus situation, the restaurant had arranged the table with 1.5m width, they told us there is a new recommendation from the government in order to prevent cross infection possibility. Back to the...the great dining experience, the hygiene environment, we picked the roasted goose and satay beef with vermicelli noodles and scallops with broccoli. The overall quality of the Chinese cuisine was extraordinary, the remarkable dishes was the satay beef with vermicelli noodles.

Very nice upscale Cantonese restaurant. The environment was very comfortable and not too crowded. We had the signature charcoal roasted goose, scrambled egg with fish maw, crispy chicken and fried last rice noodle with sliced beef in dark sauce. The roasted goose appears to be...their signature dish. It was meaty and delicious. The scrambled egg with fish maw was also superb, solid classic Cantonese dish. We can't wait to return here.More

There are many restaurants in Hong Kong that sells the same famous roasted goose dish but Yung Kee is one of the best. The goose is roasted to prefection. You can order it whole, or half, or a quarter. It literally melts in your mouth...and the meat is very tender and juicy. There're many other traditional Cantonese dishes. I highest suggest the century egg with ginger, stir fried vegetables with minced salted egg fish, braised spicy bean curd with minced beef in Sichuan style. Very attentive staff and nice set up. Negatives are small portions.More

We chose the Yung Kee restaurant because it was advertised here on tripadvisor as THE address for roast duck. Have we just been unlucky or did they think that tourists like us can easily be ripped off - in any case, this restaurant was a...huge disappointment for us. My wife and I ordered roast duck, according to menu, "for two to four people". On the recommendation of the waiter we even paid an extra charge to get goose legs, the best pieces. When the dish was served we were quite astonished: it consisted of just one small goose leg (probably a duck leg, that's how small it was) and two or three other miniature pieces of meat and lots of small bone splinters - the whole thing meant for two to four people! I would like to see the faces of a party of four ordering this menu. By the way, we never got the rice we had ordered. Conclusion: Highly overpriced restaurant, we really do not recommend it.More
