Lai Heen, the Cantonese restaurant of The Ritz-Carlton Guangzhou, has earned its first Michelin star in the inaugural Michelin Guide Guangzhou 2018. It is one of only eight top restaurants in Guangzhou to receive this coveted award.
MICHELIN STAR FOR LAI HEEN
“We are very privileged that Lai Heen has been awarded a star in this first edition of the Michelin Guide Guangzhou,” said Matthias Vogt, General Manager, The Ritz-Carlton Guangzhou. “It is a testament to our commitment to culinary excellence in a city known as the food capital of China.”
Chef Gordon Guo heads Lai Heen. He accentuates the freshness of seasonal ingredients and showcases the best Cantonese delicacies through careful balancing of colors, aromas, textures and tastes.
ABOUT CHEF GORDON CUO
Chef Guo has been cooking Cantonese food for 20 years. He is famous for his creativity, as well as for his passion. He personally selects fresh natural ingredients for his restaurant.
