First visit to Ah Yat Forum Abalone restaurant -- Questions

Dustin_E | May 2, 2013 11:51 AM

I'm a visitor from San Francisco, and i'd like to try the famous abalone / birds nest at Forum, and had a couple questions:

Is it possible to eat as a solo diner here?

What is the price range for a meal, if i go for the lowest-grade of abalone, shark fin soup, and birds nest? I know it will be high, but are we talking 2400hk$, or a lot higher?

Do I need to pre-order these dishes when i make reservations?

I assume shark fin, abalone, and birds nest are the things to try here, but are there any other can't-miss dishes? Is there anything in particular i should consider drinking with these dishes?

I will likely be visiting this restaurant solo, but possibly with one other friend.

I was a bit surprised not to see much mention of this place on the boards, but elsewhere on the web it seems to be mentioned a fair amount.
