Forum Restaurant G/F, 485 Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay 2891 2555 The fare The signature dishes (Ah Yat abalone, baked bird's nest and crab meat, and tiger shark's fin in superlative clear soup) are exquisitely done - as are the daily dining choices and the dim sum. The ambience Despite its international fame and standing, this place does not have a flashy designer look. The congratulatory messages and autographs of celebrities and the international honours on the walls speak for themselves. There is an understated elegance and relaxing ambience. The cost $400 to $5,000 for two Who to bring This is definitely the place to treat an important guest. Turn-ons Be assured that every dish is presented with the same meticulous attention. My favourites are stir-fried beef with ginger and scallion, pan-fried chicken shun-de style, fish head and aubergine casserole, and pan-fried or braised sea garoupa. Turn-offs Customers must walk up several flights of stairs to reach the washrooms.
