About
Clipper Lounge is a long-established favourite with Hong Kong locals and hotel guests alike and a wonderful place to meet at any time in the day. Clipper Lounge has a timelessly elegant feel with mink, taupe and mandarin furnishings enhanced with subtle Oriental accents. While popular for breakfast and dinner buffets, as well as our Sunday champagne brunch Hong Kong locals love, Clipper Lounge is best known for afternoon tea. Elegantly presented, the spread includes delicacies such as finger sandwiches, sweets, scones and our signature homemade rose-petal jam. We also offer extremely popular seasonal themed teas.

We came back for dinner buffet after a few years. The food remains fresh and in high quality. However, no fresh oysters are provided now. The limited space restricted the variety of food to be provided. I would definitely recommend the dessert bar and the...chooclate. For the value of money I would go for lunch buffet next time.More

Enjoyed the atmosphere and hospitality of the staff. Food was just average. Sashimi was good, fresh and generously sliced. Food stations seemed very cramped together. There was little space between isles and no 2 persons could stand back to back getting food from opposite stations...at the same time. Narrow spacing also made presentation of food less appealing. Cold crab legs and lobster seafood soup was very salty, soft shell crab greasy. Dessert was overall good, plenty of choices. You wouldn't be disappointed at the cheese cake and cream brulee. Sobert was refreshing too. Brown crab was good. Cooked food was average. Could have severd some moist tissue. Spent 2800+ HKD for 5 pplMore

I had the buffet dinner at Clipper Lounge on 18 April. The staff Dora, Choco, Gloria, Jeremy and Bobby of the Clipper Lounge provided caring and attentive services to the dining guests, especially Bobby is very proactive to address the guests needs, table requirement, enhancing...services standard and he acts on it right after. He is more than 100% service driven initiator and we dining guests suggest Clipper Lounge continue the buffet promotion to attract back HK people to spend less shopping and dining in Shenzhen and Great Bay Area and keep the quality services at competitive prices. Most of the HK people always compare expensive HK dining experience and mediocre services to Shenzhen's counterparts across borders.More

Booked the 26th December dinner buffet for a family X’mas gathering. Did not disappoint! Though the price is slightly steep and there may be other places which have an even greater selection. The food was great as always, such as the classic lobster bisque, Hainan...chicken and MO cheesecake. The handmade ice cream and sorbets were excellent as well with the kids refilling repeatedly. Service was impeccable, with Adam (though misspelt as Adan on his nametag) looking after our every needs and checking in whenever we looked like we wanted something. Bringing young kids along can be quite daunting but Adam made us feel right at home and he made sure everything was safe for the little ones as well. Had an enjoyable X’mas dinner and would love to visit again in the future! P.S. if anyone from MO is reading this, at least give the man a name tag that’s correct! Misspelling client and staff names doesn’t usually convey confidence.More

We went to the Clipper Lounge on December 22 for a dinner buffet. The quality of the food and the standard of service has been deteriorating since Covid struck HK in 2019. We expected it to pick up after 4 years. But alas! It did...not happen. The staff was disgruntled, the cooking, quality and variety of the food was substandard. We used to look forward to our meals there and see it as something special. But not anymore! We don't mind paying $888 per head for a special occasion. But unfortunately, it was not justified. It is such a shame for a supposedly 5-star hotel with so much resources! Something needs to happen. There are other hotels which easily surpass Mandarin Oriental in every manner. Hope 2024 will be a better year for them!More

Yes you don't have to do the whole high tea set , order anything on the menu should be fine but the tea set definitely is worth the money & excellent sweet treats
