China Blue by Jereme Leung is the premier Chinese restaurant of the newly opened Conrad Manila. China Blue is not a new name for many international travelers. The first China Blue opened back in 2005 at the Conrad Tokyo and since then, it has already earned Michelin stars and several other awards and recognition.
With this high expectation on the China Blue brand, Conrad Manila has partnered with Chinese celebrity master chef, Jereme Leung, who was responsible for creating the menu for the restaurant. China Blue by Jereme Leung features dishes prepared using traditional Chinese cooking techniques with a modern approach to presentation.
Chef Jeremy Leung is considered as one of the most creative pioneers of contemporary Chinese cuisines. This is not the first time that Chef Jereme Leung has worked with Conrad Hotels. Back in 2014, he created Ufaa by Jereme Leung, the first Chinese restaurant in the luxurious Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.
China Blue by Jereme Leung exudes a stylish interior that combines the sophisticated elegance of traditional Chinese design which can be seen in the simplicity of its layout, broken down by clean yet solid straight lines, and punctuated by tastefully selected furniture and accent pieces.
Consistent with its name, China Blue did away with the signature red-black-gold combination of Chinese interior design. Here, we see a lot of blue, grey, silver and brown. Water is the dominating element at China Blue by Jereme Leung as expressed by the contemporary chandeliers that resemble flowing water from the ceiling.
China Blue by Jereme Leung has a variety of table set-ups, from the traditional round tables ideal for family-style dining to the chic half circle sofas. The most coveted tables are the ones located at the far end of the restaurant near the glass walls where guests can enjoy an overlooking view of the majestic Manila Bay.

From time to time, the staff would visit our table, constantly making sure that we were enjoying our lunch, would clear empty dishes, would refilled our teapot and made sure that our teacups don't go empty. I would glance to Ms. Jane and give her a smile to reassure her that we were having a great time at China Blue.

Overall, we are very satisfied with our experience at China Blue by Jereme Leung. All dishes were well executed. Customer service was outstanding. It really met my very high expectation and I am sure that it will not take long for this restaurant will join the ranks of its sister restaurant at Conrad Tokyo. Congratulations Conrad Manila for the successful opening of China Blue by Jereme Leung!
