The Chairman specializes in traditional cantonese / Guangdong cuisine. In the 2019 rankings of the World's Best Restaurants, The Chairman came in at #41, ahead of two other restaurants I dined at during my trip to Hong Kong, Belon at #96 and Amber at #102. Based on my dining experience at The Chairman, I am not sure I understand how they achieve that status.
The cuisine was fine, except the roasted pigeon, but not exceptional. The pigeon was poorly executed. Usually, the skin on the roasted pigeon is very crispy and the meat tender and juicy. At the Chairman, our pigeon was neither of these. The bird was very small and the meat was tough.
The stand-out dish for us was the pork belly. The chinese gailan, the duck and the mushroom and bean curd casserole were good but not exceptional.
The decor of the restaurant is simple, almost to the point of being too plain. The service was efficient and professional. The location is not the easiest to find so please keep this in mind.
Would I make a special trip to dine at The Chairman the next time I am in Hong Kong, probably not.
