Located within the casino of Studio City Macau, Bi Ying is a convenient dining hot spot for guests playing the tables. The name refers to the Chinese characters for jade and an inviting ambiance, and the latter is brought to life with an interior embellished with golden accents matched with auspicious shades of red. Bi Ying’s excels in presenting bold flavours from China’s regional cuisines, stretching from Xinjiang to Sichuan, Hunan to Beijing and even some of Canton as well. Dim sum-style dumplings and buns are made to order and available throughout the day; pan-fried peppered wagyu beef buns are beautifully made with a golden crust and juicy wagyu beef inside, highlighted with a sharp spicy punch from black pepper. The restaurant’s a la carte selection shows promising use of spices and heat, as demonstrated in sharing platters such as the Xinjiang lamb skewers or Sichuan poached Mandarin fish slices with hot and chilli broth. Bi Ying’s punchy flavours are accompanied by a selection of premium Chinese teas, although wines are in short supply, especially the by-the-glass options. The staff may not be as knowledgeable in wine pairing, and occasionally at peak capacity service tends to be a little slow, but at time of service the staff are friendly throughout.
