Riviera Chic: The airport-adjacent neighborhood of Tung Chung is undergoing a bit of a blossoming at the moment with the addition of many new facilities, restaurants, and shops. Perhaps the most exciting opening is the chic Sunset Grill, perched atop the brand new Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung Hotel.
Look & Feel: Effortlessly stylish and elegant, but with a casual, welcoming ambiance. The expansive restaurant boasts floor-to-ceiling windows all across one wall, offering sweeping views of the ocean and airport. Dapper shades of green and brown – along with high-end finishings and plush carpets give the place an elevated feel. There’s also a lovely alfresco terrace that’s perfect for sipping sundowners – and from where Sunset Grill takes its name. The attention to detail here is particularly impressive – each table has a little stool that’s perfect for perching bags on.
On the Menu: Sunset Grill specializes in dry-aged meat, and nearly everything here is cooked in imported ovens, giving everything a rich, smokey flavor. Of course, the star of the show are the steaks – we had a USDA t-bone that was cooked to absolute perfection and served with peppercorn, bearnaise, and mustard.
But all the other dishes we tried were surprisingly pleasing, too – sophisticated yet simple and perfectly well-balanced. While you’re here, be sure to try the creamy steak tartare, the flavorful, pillowy gnocchi, and the juicy seared Hokkaido scallops.
All the food here is paired with an extensive wine menu of international labels, and craft cocktails whipped up behind the bar.
Jeng: The surprisingly exceptional food and views – and the solid, smiling service.
Not So Jeng: If there’s any downside to Sunset Grill, it’s location. Unless you’re staying at the hotel or already in the Tung Chung area, it’s unlikely you’d make the trip out here just to have dinner.
Great For: Long, lingering lunches, breezy dinners, and sipping sundowners with incredible sunsets.
FYI: There’s a private room located at one end of the restaurant – it’s perfect for groups and celebrations.
