Harrogate’s Royal Baths Chinese Restaurant has managed to lure a top Chinese chef from a Michelin Star restaurant in London.

Owner of The Royal Baths Chinese Restaurant, Hak Ng, is taking the opportunity to create a special Dim Sum lunchtime offer to introduce Guo’s the culinary excellence.

He said: “We’re very proud that Guo has decided to come and work with us. His culinary skills are exceptional, as you would expect from a chef who has come straight from a Michelin Star restaurant.

“At Hakkasan, Guo was in charge of the Dim Sum department which were very popular with the restaurant’s celebrity clientele as it’s a very healthy option on a Chinese menu because they are steamed and contain no oils or fat.”

Dim Sum are made from a rice base and filled with a selection of meat, fish, seafood and vegetables, served with Soy and chilli dipping Sauce.

“We hope our diners will give them a try because Guo has created a great selection of different types of Dim Sum that look great and are delicious and a healthy alternative for lunch or dinner,” added Hak.

Guo said: “I’m so happy to come and work at the Royal Baths, it is stunning restaurant and Harrogate is such a beautiful place.”
