No mistaking the quality of the cooking here ad the service was also excellent. I got shoved in the back room both times i ate here and it was a bit lonely... but the staff were very friendly.
The menu seems a bit limited and seafood heavy.. the locals seemed to very much enjoy a banquet here though so it must hit the high notes for them. Not cheap..

If you want some truly authentic Cantonese cuisine and outstanding dim sum, then look no further than Sing Yin where Chef Johnny Chan works his magic. But if you’re expecting the stereotypical grandeur or most Cantonese restaurants, you’re in for a big surprise.

The 120-seat Sing Yin is on the ground floor of W Hong Kong and a nod to contemporary thinking, thanks to international architect and interior designer, Steve Leung. The moment you approach the entrance you are absorbed by this towering façade dominated by high ceilings and dangling Chinese artefacts. Huge screens beckon you to enjoy the recreation of Hong Kong’s bustling streetscape.

The wow-factor continues on your journey inside. Even the bar is reminiscent of the old stores of the 60s and 70s, modelled on a traditional Chinese tea house. A hand-sketched cityscape on the ceiling above.

Approaching the main dining area is another experience, semi-private rooms that emulate the old boutiques and barber shops, the décor of local groceries. And if you make your way to the very end of the restaurant, you’ll find a cluster of intermittent LCD screens that are intertwined with real and virtual marine life.

With bulging eyes and dripping tongue, I leapt at the chance to sample Chef Chan’s signature set menu and I was not disappointed. My highlights were the barbecued Spanish Iberico pork, roasted pork belly with crispy crust and accompanying chilled cucumber with black vinegar. This was followed by pan-fried crab claw stuffed with minced shrimp and a sautéed king prawn with crab meat and sea urchin. Total seafood perfection! And not to be out done was the sautéed Australian wagyu beef (“marble score 8”) with black pepper sauce. And the steam fried rice with whole abalone wrapped in lotus leaf.

Fabulous food!

Tried this place recently for the first time. Great place to catch up with friends, providing yummy food and good service from friendly staff! The BBQ pork and wagyu beef tasted awesome and was a favourite. Definitely will be back with family and highly recommended for Chinese food.

Considering that typhon Huto was coming to visit with force 10 and that we were staying at the W hotel, this was a perfect venue to explore good Cantonese cuisine.

Chef Johnny Chang does a great job with creative dishes that are very well prepared. The venue is very confortable offering space and privacy in form of private booth. The service is attentive and friendly

This was a perfect first experience as we just arrived
