Weekend Family Lunch - respectable standards with prompt service.

The front-of-house staff at Tien Court were always smiley and polite while attending to our table. Hubby called for staff several times for subsequent food orders and they were always patient and obliging. When the garoupa dish came, I asked a manager (I think he is a manager, he was wearing a jacket) what fish it was and he told me within 5 seconds haha. Good job I wasn’t trying to test him ok, I wanted to know what fish I was feeding to Am! The aunties who are clearing our plates were also very prompt. They also helped us change our dirty personal plates Overall service was wonderful, and it played a huge part in making this lunch one of the best family lunches I’ve ever been to! Food-wise, none of us complained abt any dish at all (except the fried rice which was abit oily for both mums) and we were so satisfied and fat after lunch

Bad Service, outrageous booking procedure

Worst place to consider for dining, even before going to that place physically. Tried to make a booking for 6 pax, and the service staff on phone requested us to make FULL payment as deposit before they will confirm booking. As we were unable to physically going down to pay, we called back and they mentioned that we can sign an authorization form. After signing the form, they called back again and requested us to provide a photocopy of both front and back of the credit card to be charged. And they keep repeatedly calling us and pester us to provide the copies else they will void out booking. From the understanding, a merchant can charge a card by providing the credit card number and having the authorization from the customer. One wonder's why and what they can do with all your credit card details. In summary, avoid this restaurant or refrain from using your card when making payment. 1) Poor, cocky attitude by staff on phone. ( for only a booking of 6 pax, not 60 pax) 2) Full payment for deposit required when making a booking. 3) Asking for authorization form from customer and also photocopy of front and back of credit card. 4) Terrible customer service.

Lousy Service, Unfriendly Menu and Average Food

This was my first and last visit to this restaurant. The couple of things that upsets me were:
1) Service: My family went into the restaurant in 2 batches. I happened to be the 2nd batch of the people who sat on the table. For minutes no one came to our table to ask for our drink orders. I think the service of coffee shops are better than the restaurant in tis case. It took a while before I got the attention the waitress who came to take our orders for food and drinks. While waiting for food to come, we filled our own cups of tea but when the warm water in our glasses finished, no one notice or bothered until I got their attention again. For a while I was confused. Am I in a high class fine dining restaurant or some Chinese eatery along the streets. The service and the theme do not go in line at all.

2) Menu: Many of the dishes were charged at individual portions. I can understand the fine dining theme that they were trying to set but surely they can keep a separate menu for families who are happier to see big dishes of food of the table?

3) Food: Ordered steam cod fish. The cod fish was bland. The roast duck was hard and not well seasoned. The only thing nice was shark fish soup which was thick fish broth with top shell and sea cucumber. The toufu and veg was bland. I am normally someone who do not like food with heavy seasonings but tasteless was altogether another matter.

Lobster noodle dinner

For dinner, we tried the lobster noodle, cod fish with crispy bean crumbs and braised pork rice.
  There is a min order of 2 portions for the lobster noodle.  Overall the lobster noodle is nice with a slight ginger taste.  The noodle is "crunchy" but the portion of noodle is small.  Each serving comes with half a lobster.   The bean crumbs on the steam cod fish is tasty but the crumbs are little hard. From the taiwanese menu, we had a small serving of braised pork rice.  The edamame has a sesame oil flavor and the chilli shrimp paste is pretty good.   for more pictures, please visit

Steamed cod fillet with Crispy Bread crumbs

Experience the art of Chinese fine dining at Tien Court at Copthrone King’s Hotel. Master Chef Ho Tien Tsai has made appearances in several episodes of cooking programs aired in Channel 8. Tien court serves a mix of Cantonese and Si Chuan cuisine. I have been here several times since Tien Court is my FIL’s favorite restaurant; my pictures are a collation from different visits.

The food was ALWAYS good and the service was ALWAYS impeccable (may be due to the fact my FIL is a regular)

The edamame, XO sauce dried shrimp, and black beans are delicious. FIL and hubby love the XO sauce dried shrimp very much so they would order one bowl of it. =_=. Steam chicken with loads of alcohol, which turned me off from the dish.

Longevity buns. Too many for 4 of us to finish…..

$80 per bowl shark's fin soup. For this outrageous price, it BETTER be good, and it was fantastic! But with that money one can eat a Melt buffet and I would rather go for a buffet, not ONE bowl of soup….

Charcoal steam boat which was prepared by the staff outside the private room.

The various dips for the upcoming steam boat dishes

The soup broth was full of flavor. First we had lobster and fish followed by abalone, shark’s fin and scallops.

Tofu, chicken and enoki mushrooms. Cabbage with Vermicelli

Another dinner: Clear shark fin’s soup and lotus root soup

Peking duck. The duck skin is crispy with no fat on it.

Xo sauce prawns with asparagus. A tad salty but still yummy.

Steamed fish which was very fresh.

Typical spinach with salted egg and century egg.

Noodles with duck meat from the Peking duck.

Fried mushroom coated with foie gras, hot and sour soup, Lotus root soup. The mushroom dish is my favorite dish at Tien Court. The hot and sour soup is decent, but Chinois does it better.

Steamed cod fish with salted vegetables, tofu and mushrooms. A very healthy dish that left me yearning for more

Salted egg prawns, sweet and sour pork, garlic do miao.

Steamed cod fillet with crispy bread crumbs, Pan fried venison with garlic, Clay pot chicken with battleground. The steamed cod fillet with crispy bread crumbs is one of Tien Court’s signature dishes.
