It was an honour for us to take the stage once again with the champions of the city’s hospitality scene for Tatler Dining’s annual Dining Awards. We thank our friends at Tatler for continuing to recognise talent from Hong Kong, Macau and beyond.

Congratulations to Ho Lee Fook and New Punjab Club for earning their spots once again in the Top 20 while continuing to operate each day like it is their first.

At Ho Lee Fook, Chef ArChan, last year’s Local Champion and a standout nominee for Chef of the Year 2024, continues to make waves with her imaginative Cantonese cuisine. We are all continually inspired by the drive and fire Chef ArChan and the team add to the Ho Lee Fook story.

At New Punjab Club, Chefs Palash, Chef Sidhu and Chef Tara continue to change the perception of Punjabi and South Asian cuisine, while pushing boundaries for the work we do across all of Black Sheep.

We are incredibly proud of Magistracy Dining Room for their inauguration into this year’s Top 20. Bringing this monument back to life during one of the city’s most challenging periods remains one of our proudest achievements, and continues to represent our values of dreaming big, taking risks, storytelling and building legacy. This also sets the stage for Phase Two, as we introduce the world to Prince and the Peacock.

We also want to express gratitude for the beautiful work of Melissa Collison at FALCONE, nominated for Best Interior Design, which captures the chaos and whimsy of Napoli and also deserves recognition.

Last but not least, our fearless leader, Syed Asim Hussain — Restaurateur of the Year for the second year in a row. To Asim, a now five-time awardee, it is not only a testament to his passion and commitment, but also to the community he has built, for without it, this award would be for nought. Thank you for believing in Hong Kong, shining a light on our industry and inspiring us day in and day out to share our stories with the same fervour, consideration and love that you carry.

We are grateful and offer our congratulations to all of the winners and nominees. Hong Kong is a better place because of our hard work, uplifting the city we call home.
