Dim Sums are nice, perhaps a bit more seasoning will be needed for the shrimp dumplings and xiao mai. The soy sauce of the rice noodle will overwhelm of the dim sum. perhaps serving orders will be needed.
bbq pork is outstanding as usual.
Service is good.

Already walking down the stairs into the former vault of the Standard Charted Bank is adventurous. The main room is a mix of vault, dungeon and dinning hall, it's dark, a bit scary in the first place, but the old vault doors as the Teller cabin makes it an unique experience.
The flower decorations and the chandeliers are brining a luxury atmosphere to the place.

I was delighted to get a Hong Kong brewed IPA there.

The food is delicious. We have pre-ordered the Peking duck, which is a must to try, it roasted there and comes on the table warm and super crispy.
Also the BBQ pork is highlight, it's sweet, soft and tender.
The deep fried abalone was not a such a highlight for my taste.
Further on we had two choices of the Dim Sum and the lobster with Ma Po Tofu. It was a bit too less lobster, but the Tofu was delicious, spicy enough to make your tongue a bit numb, but not too strong.

Fantastic are the desserts, the chocolate mousse covered in green tea looks strange in the first place, but it's bursting in the mouth with a full chocolate taste.
Also the Jasmine tea infused creme brûlée is a tasteful little bowl.

Bring you big wallet and enjoy a good dining experience in an unique location.

walked around central a bit and found mott in the standard chartered building. didn't have a reservation but they accomodated a solo diner like me. the ambience is modern and very dark, perhaps to align with the vault location

the chinese dishes are quite authentic and the evening dim sum, pigeon and vegetables i had were good. service is ok

didn't order the more fancy dishes since i was alone but it gets rather pricy as a group from what i saw in the menu

I felt like I was wandering into the culinary equivalent of The Crystal Maze, with different exquisitely-decorated dining zones revealing themselves at every turn. Classical Asian takes on wall graffiti and street art adorn the concrete walls throughout, with each of the five private rooms all boasting distinctly different designs too. It is truly breathtaking.

Mott 32’s menu of Cantonese, Beijing and Sichuan dishes proves itself totally up to the task.

The bao was crumbly and delicious, the BBQ pork sweet, moreish and happily lacking in that greasy, fatty feel that char siu bao often have.

Siu mai is here thanks to two magic ingredients – a quail’s egg and black truffle, easily become my favourite siu mai in town.


Similarly, their Iberico char siu is already being talked up as being the best in Hong Kong, looked seriously sexy, with charred caramelised sections winking greedily at me.

Another Mott 32 signature is their apple wood-roasted Peking duck, plated up in the traditional Beijing style – one dish of pure skin, one of just meat, and a third with slices that have a bit of both.

Given everything I have told you about Mott 32, I’m pretty sure you aren’t expecting to pay Tim Ho Wan prices. However, the quality of the food and ingredients is undeniable and honestly, it’s one of the most stunning interiors in Hong Kong.
