Welcome to Kam Tong Restaurant in Queensway
Our dim sum is freshly made to order daily and in addition to the traditional items you would expect on the menu such as prawn dumplings (hau gau), pan-fried Peking pork dumplings and fluffy taro croquettes, you can find more contemporary choices such as the Assam curry chicken puff and the Phoenix prawn sui mai. The honey barbecued pork puffs, although a regular on most dim sum menus, also come highly recommended!
Executive Chef Chris Kwan (formerly of China House & Zen Mayfair) has retained many favourites as well as adding a few dishes that have been given a more contemporary twist such as king prawns in creamy mustard sauce or crispy Mongolian lamb shank served with iceberg lettuce leaves.
The hand-carved wooden Kam Tong signage which now takes pride of place on one wall inside the restaurant was taken from the original Kam Tong restaurant in Hong Kong where it became an institution back in the Fifties and Sixties. Kam Tong in Queensway has itself been in existence for almost 40 years. The décor mirrors the theme of the old coming into the new, with the light and contemporary aesthetic embellished with antique carvings and traditional-style screens.
Chris Kwan has been working in the restaurant trade for over 35 years, most notably China House, Zen Mayfair, Dragon Castle and as Consultant Chef for the restaurant chain Chop Chop and Noodle Bar in Dubai.
