Why Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant is special ?

Bring your dog along after a hike in the countryside, and dine at this busy Sai Kung spot. The seafood here may be the freshest in town.

Tips for you
We had dinner in this restaurant. Although it is pricey, but the freshness of the seafood worth the price! The second day, i returned to the same restaurant for seafood again! Probably you can imagine how tasty it is. Anyway, there are many sets to choose depends on how many pax you are. If you have enuough budget, just pick the seafood from the aquarium but make sure you ask the price. The price of each seafood is different and something surprise is, you got to pay for the COOKING fees separately (fried and steam are all different price). Know the price clearly before getting them on your table. Of course, if you are a luxury traveller, that is another story. Strongly recommend this restaurant to travellers!
There are several seafood places to choose from in Sai Kung. We picked Chuen Kee because it was the busiest and appeared to be full of locals. We were not disappointed. We had spicy salt mantis shrimp (aka pissing shrimp), stir fried razor clams with peppers in black bean sauce, steamed rock cod, steamed scallops with garlic and vermicelli, stir fried tong choy, and of course, some Tsing Tao beer. Everything was cooked perfectly. The razor clams were particularly awesome and I loved the shrimp! Prices are kind of on the high side. We paid close to $200 USD for 3 people and the service was just ok. Except the guy at the fish tanks was really nice and offered all sorts of suggestions on how to have everything cooked. I would go back again simply for the quality of the food. Plus if you get a table outside, the ambience is quite amazing with a great view of the harbour.
Such a great experience. Fresh fish, open tables, and people watching are fun!!!
