I am a fan of Chinese food, which is why I am always on the lookout for new places to try. I appreciate restaurants that specialize in the dishes I know and love, yet also bring something new to the table. This keeps things exciting, and makes me want to go back and try more of its dishes. One restaurant that recently left this impression was Li Li. I recently dined here during my staycation at the New World Manila Bay Hotel and I was so impressed with its dishes. The menu reflects traditional home style Chinese cooking, specializing in dim sum. It is renowned in its standards of modern oriental hospitality, as its dishes are prepared by Hong Kong Master Chef Andy Chan. It has become the preference for power lunches, elegant dinners and enjoyable relaxed dining for both foreign and local residents, as it offers a wide selection of Cantonese dishes.
Tastefully designed with modern interiors blending Chinese and European influences, Li Li evokes a truly residential feel. Giving an impression that you are in a large penthouse apartment in Paris or Milan as Li Li’s guests creates the perfect atmosphere to meet and relax. The restaurant has a dining area, living room, library, drawing room and a wine cellar. They also have five private rooms which seats 8 up to 20 guests and provides an ideal setting for dinner parties or group functions. The architectural and interior design was developed by Florida and Hong Kong-based Bilkey Llinas Design blending Oriental and European style. Art consultant, Art Internationale Asia furnished Li Li with exquisite furniture, antique pieces, books, works of art and decorative artifacts.
Amazing dishes and equally impressive interiors make Li Li one of my top Chinese restaurants to visit. It accommodates up to 180 guests with a tables for 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14 persons. Li Li is located on the fifth level of New World Manila Bay Hotel. For inquiries and reservations, call +63 2 2526888
