A seafood restaurant in Wan Chai was said to be closed its door on the same day it was awarded One Michelin Star by the renowned dining guide, while staff were seen protesting for unpaid salaries.
The newly Michelin-starred restaurant, D.H.K., is one of the eleven new restaurants that grabbed the star this year. “The owner-manager worked in some of the top-tier Cantonese restaurants in Hong Kong and his presence alone attracts plenty of gastronomes,” the iconic Guide described.
However, D.H.K. representatives were absent from the MICHELIN Guide Ceremony held in Macau on Wednesday, while its official website and Facebook
page also shut down.
Staff were seen protesting for the outstanding salaries on the same day at the restaurant. They added that the manager suddenly told them on Tuesday night of the business closure.
One employee called the police at around 3 pm for the restaurant failing to pay their wages.
