Lung Hin (龍軒) is the in-house Chinese restaurant of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila serving authentic Cantonese dishes prepared by the restaurant's culinary team. At the helm is Chinese Executive Chef Sunny Cheng, a Michelin-starred chef who brought with him years of experience as a Hong Kong chef. Chef Sunny created contemporary twists to Cantonese classics which guests can only experience at Lung Hin.
The restaurant has a modern, chinoiserie chic interior with a spacious main dining area with round tables ideal for families or groups of ten persons. both sides of the restaurant are lines with booths which are divided by glass walls. These are ideal for smaller groups of four to six persons for a more intimate, semi-private dining. Best spot is one of the booths facing the glass window where guests can enjoy a spectacular view of the city.
It was during a Weekend Staycation at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila back in December 2014 when we first dined at Lung Hin. That was followed by our second visit last September 2015 when we tried their Dim Sum All-You-Can promo. Finally, to formally welcome the New Year 2016, we are back at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila for a relaxing Weekend Spa-cation, and there is no better place to have our first dinner of 2016 but at Lung Hin.

|Platter: Crispy Suckling Pig, Barbecue Pork, Soy Chicken, Century Egg, Jellyfish, Vinegar Marinated Ginger|
I was totally satisfied with the Crispy Suckling Pig, it tasted exactly the same as the Crispy Suckling Pig meal I tried in a Michelin-star roast meat restaurant in Causway Bay, Hong Kong. The skin was super crispy and the meat was very tender. Lung Hin will definitely be my go-to place when I am craving for Crispy Suckling Pig.

The barbecue pork filling of the Lung Hin pork buns are also chunkier, unlike the other versions which are filled with small chunks of pork and lots and lots of sauce. The crust of Lung Hin's pork bun is not too sweet as well unlike that of Tim Ho Wan and TuanTuan. The crust doesn't also crumble.
