Forbidden City Bar Menu

The world of Chinese cuisine is limitless and exciting, a journey of tasteful cultures and flavoursome histories, from Buddhist temple cuisines of the Tang Dynasty Silk Road and the lantern-lit teahouses of bustling Ming Dynasty Suzhou, to the cocktail hour of Hong Kong and Shanghai’s jazz age.

We are honoured to have you join us on this culinary journey, with a menu that celebrates Chinese food heritage, historical recipes, and kitchen craft evolved over 4000 years

Our menu encapsulates the importance of sharing, which is at the heart of Chinese culture and to enjoy the full A. Wong experience we would recommend ordering 4 dishes per person, depending on your appetite. Perhaps starting with 1 snacks, one ‘sharing’ dish followed by 2 dishes. Alternatively, Andrew can create your own bespoke menu or for those with a little more time, we also offer a ‘Taste of China menu’ – where each course is inspired by a specific region of China’s 14 international borders.



中國飲食文化注重分享,而我們的菜單亦稟承這傳統。為令閣下能全面享受A.Wong的美食體驗,我們建議每人點六道菜,但這當然取決於您的食慾。建議可從兩個小食開始,加一個「共享」菜,然後配上三個菜式。 另外,如有更多時間,建議可試試我們的“中國風味菜單” – 每道菜的靈感分別來自中國14個邊疆地區。
