Business travelers consider the Okura to be one of the best hotels in Asia. That judgment has to do with its polish, its human scale, its impeccable standards of service, and—to judge by Toh-Ka-Lin—its stellar restaurants. Black-and-gold square columns surround the dining room, a peaceful backdrop for the Cantonese food. The menu is broad enough for various tastes. Dishes are eclectic, but satisfying; two stellar examples are the Peking duck and the sautéed quail wrapped in lettuce leaf. The restaurant also has a not-too-expensive mid-afternoon meal ($$) of assorted dim sum and other delicacies—and one of the most extensive wine lists in town.
