I was in Amber for a surprise dinner. Since it was a surprise, I did not have much of an expectation for the food, let alone any knowledge of what the restaurant would entail.

We ordered the Degustation menu which consist of dishes like foie gras lollipops, mushroom cappuccino, Hokkaido sea urchin, Tasmanian salmon, Wagyu beef and more. Every course was carefully executed. The combination such as the sea urchin in a lobster jell-o with cauliflower and caviar crispy seaweed waffles was simply perfect. The dishes were creamy, buttery, bursting with flavors yet proportioned perfectly right. Nothing was overpowering.

It was a smooth and enjoyable flow of flavor throughout the night. The service was impeccable which made the night even more memorable. It is by far the best meal I have had in Hong Kong. I highly recommend Amber and I would definitely go back once I save up some money and will not order the champagne.
