One of the primary attractions at Altira Macau is the view from the hotel’s four major restaurants, and Ying is no different. Overlooking the city from the comfort of your window table or partitioned booths, a meal here is a fine experience indeed. But the appeal of the decor extends beyond the view. Equal parts tradition and contemporary expression, eating at Ying is a comfortable experience and in particular, their private and semi-private dining rooms are highly recommended for comfort and intimacy.
Ying serves traditional Cantonese cuisine with a hint of personal flair, and the food does not disappoint. While they carry pricey seafood delicacies such as abalone, Ying’s menu maintains a good balance of modest, everyday fare. A highlight is dim sum for lunch and their range of barbecued meats. The dumpling skins are neither too thick nor too thin, the texture is just the right type of bouncy, and the stuffing inside well-prepared and, in the case of seafood items, fresh. Roasted pork belly richly deserves its position as a restaurant signature, with an incredible crispy layer of skin topping the excellent pork belly, flaking gently with every bite. Ying has a love affair with Iberico pork, as even the sweet and sour pork or barbecued pork uses Iberico ham and yes, it tastes as decadent as it sounds. Additionally, crispy fried chicken was just a touch on the dry side in places. But minor issues aside, the food at Ying is good enough to speak for itself.
The Altira Macau’s four main restaurants share an excellent and helpful wine list, so a great bottle is easy to procure at Ying for any occasion.
The service at Ying deserves praise, but certain dishes can be either a little slow leaving the kitchen or lightning quick. This aside, the staff is warm and attentive, quietly doing the job with a minimum of fuss.
You can get cheaper Cantonese cuisine and dim sum for less, but will it be as good? For the level of quality at Ying, a bill averaging MOP400 a head will not seem expensive at all.
