The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou’s signature Cantonese restaurant, Lai Heen has earned its first Michelin star in the inaugural Michelin Guide Guangzhou 2018. Lai Heen becomes the ninth restaurant to receive this prestigious accolade among eight Ritz-Carlton hotels in Asia Pacific.
Considered among the finest Cantonese restaurants in Guangzhou, the wellspring of Cantonese culture, Lai Heen offers fine Cantonese dining experiences in an unforgettable, traditionally-styled atmosphere. Beyond the main dining room, take refuge in eight semi-private and six private dining rooms. Enjoy contemporary inspirations alongside classic dishes—the recipes for which can be thousands of years old—all prepared under the watchful eye of Chinese Chef de Cuisine and expertly paired course-by-course with fine teas and wines.
Gordon Guo, the Executive Chinese Chef of The Ritz-Carlton, is well known as a master in “collecting food ingredients”. Every dish he cooks is unique and is full of surprises and expectations. Looking at his menu, you will find no ingredients that you often hear of or see. It is his constant pursuit of unique ingredients and his strict selection process, combined with his consummate cooking skills, which gave Lai Heen a refreshing look soon after his arrival. His imaginative mind and creative thinking are fully demonstrated in his new menu, “Natural·Lai Heen”.
