When it comes to flashy and glitz, Park Chinois is as “#Mayfair” as you can get. It pays homage to old-school dinner and dance clubs for the rich set in Hong Kong, and it delivers on that promise. You’ll find sexy red velvet and gold all over the shop, and a live brass band playing swing remixes of Beyonce and Bruno Mars (which is legitimately awesome). It mainly caters for those who fly to Paris by private jet just to grab some croissants for breakfast. Because they are ‘#blessed’ with ‘#wealth’. But if you manage to ignore the reality TV stars, the bloke who is watching a live feed of the footie on his phone whilst having dinner with his blinged-up wife, and the perfectly fine Chinese cuisine at nosebleed prices, you can actually have a pretty decent night here.
