Birthday Dinner with a View in Hong Kong

waitimgodot | Feb 15, 2011 04:31 PM

My boyfriend and I are from San Francisco and are travelling to Hong Kong and Thailand for two weeks during his birthday. I am very familiar with Hong Kong but I've been struggling to find the perfect restaurant to take him for his birthday. He loves seafood and beautiful views - I thought that would be incredibly easy to find but after meticulously studying the chowhound boards, I'm still unsure of where to go. What I would prefer is a romantic dinner, Cantonese/Chinese food (we're in San Francisco so great French, Italian, Western is all very accessible here and in Napa), with amazing views of the HK night skyline. I've gathered a few places on top of all the hole-in-the-walls I'll be dragging him to. This is what I've seen as some popular places but not sure if there are other options or if it fits with what we are looking for:

Man Wah at the Mandarin Oriental
Ye Shanghai in TST
T'ang Court
Ming Court
Hu Tong

Open to new suggestions. I am also not sure how much each of these will cost so if someone can give me a general price range, that would be great as well. I will be okay spending about $100-200USD a person although this will depend on quality of the food, of course.
