Guide to Hong Kong's dining and entertainment precincts

Halve your dining bill and maximize savings during your stay in Hong Kong, with the Hong Kong Card and pocket-sized guide book

.

Being one of Asia's most international cities, Hong Kong boasts quite a few trendy dining-and-entertainment precincts, which are as vibrant and up-to-date as Hong Kong itself... Each with its own unique ambience and style, so no matter what mood you are in (or what budget you are on), one of them will probably suit you right...

 

From über-swanky gourmet restaurants, where the world's who's who are having their luxurious dinners of Fois gras, Wagyu steak and truffles, to authentic "Dai pai dong" stalls and simple eateries where delicious Cantonese fare can be enjoyed, and from Lan Kwai Fong's "Friday night madness" to the elegant bistros of SoHo and romantic waterfront resto-bars around Repulse Bay and Stanley... No matter how, or where, you choose to spend your evening... Hong Kong has it, big time.

 

A small tip from 'Mtropolasia-Man' :

Most restaurants in Hong Kong allow you to BYO. The issue is whether they charge any corkage fee and if they do, how much is it? If you plan on bringing your own wine, it might be a good idea to ask the restaurant, when you make the booking...

1) Central and Lan Kway Fong (LKF) : Stylish hotel and shopping mall restaurants, next to Hong Kong's most lively nightlife quarter

Central, Hong Kong's modern business district, is dominated by glittering skyscrapers that house the Asia-Pacific headquarters of international corporations, alongside bank managements, government agencies and foreign consulates.

 

Well known for its voguish shopping malls and exclusive boutiques, it is not a designated dining and entertainment area, as such, although its international ambience attracts the city's rich and famous and, therefore, some of the best restaurants in Hong Kong can be found here...

 

Moreover, the area's proximity to LKF and the SoHo makes it possible for you to start the evening with dinner in Central before moving onwards to the bars and clubs of the entertainment zones.

 

Recommended venues in Central include Caprice at the Four Seasons Hotel (one of Hong Kong's most sought-after French restaurants), Grissini (one of Hong Kong's finest Italian restaurants), Shanghai Garden (excellent Shanghainese cuisine), Tandoor (one of Hong Kong's most favorite Indian restaurants), Lotus (contemporary Australian-Thai resto-bar), Isola Bar & Grill (lovely Mediterranean cuisine and large alfresco terrace, facing Victoria Harbour), Lung King Heen (haute Cantonese cuisine with a modern touch) and Cuisine Cuisine (contemporary Cantonese cuisine with an emphasize on fresh seafood), Maxim's Palace City Hall (serves some of the best dim-sum and dumplings in Hong Kong), L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon (2-Michelin Star restaurant, serving contemporary French fare) and The "Terrace" at Sevva (This resto-bar boasts some of the most magnificent cityscape views in Hong Kong).

  .  

Lan Kwai Fong (often abbreviated as LKF) is probably Hong Kong's most popular and best known nightlife arena.  

 

The small square of streets, formed by the L-shaped Lan Kwai Fong Street and adjacent D'Aguilar Street, is packed with bars, pubs, clubs and some excellent restaurants that make it a popular choice for locals, expatriates and tourists alike.

 

Visiting on a Friday or Saturday night, you may be overwhelmed by the enormous crowds that fill the streets (which are closed for several hours to vehicular traffic), with all bars having only standing room... And when the bars get too crammed, the scene moves to the street, as customers take their drinks and stand outside...

 

Surprisingly, some of the city's most exclusive restaurants are located here and well-heeled diners can enjoy a romantic evening, a stone's throw away from the madding crowd. 

 

Some of Hong Kong's "night birds" like to start the evening at LKF, move somewhere else, and then come back to LKF, just before the night is over...

 

Getting to LKF is very easy: From MTR-Central, take exit D-2 and walk via Theatre Lane to Queen's Road Central, cross it and walk up D'aguillar Street, from which you turn left to Lan Kwai Fong (It's just a few minutes' walk from the MTR station...)

 

Our list of most recommended venues in and around Lan Kwai Fong includes Dragon I (one of Hong Kong's hottest night spots, combining a Chinese and Japanese restaurant, a stylish bar and a dancing club), Insomnia (a very popular night spot, open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week), Yung Kee (a renowned Cantonese restaurant, serving some of the best roast goose in Hong Kong), Indochine 1929 (a splendid Vietnamese restaurant), Post 97 (delicious café-style food, easygoing ambience and nice music), Tastings Wine Bar (one of Hong Kong's best wine bars) and  Al's Diner (a 1950s American style restaurant, bar and club), Azure (Perched on the 29th and 30th floors, this stylish restaurant & lounge - bar specializes in French influenced modern-international cuisine), Sushi Kuu (inventive Sushi and Sashimi creations, alongside Japanese home-style cuisine) and and Gunga Din's (Named after Rudyard Kipling's famous hero. This restaurant serves fabulous and diversified south Indian cuisine).

2) Sheung Wan and SoHo : Authentic Chinese eateries and elegant, romantic bistro-style restaurants...

The SoHo is another extremely popular dining and entertainment district. 

Unlike the London area of the same name (but much like the Soho in New York), the district's name is derived from its geographical location: South of Hollywood Road.

 

Located in the lower part of Mid-levels, just above Hollywood Road, the SoHo comprises a few small streets that form an "A shape", with Elgin Street and Staunton Street being the sides and Shelley Street, along the famous escalator, connecting them.

 

Contrarily to LKF, Wan Chai and some other nightlife areas around Hong Kong, SoHo is more about quiet bistro-style restaurants and cafés, where you can enjoy a romantic evening, or have your coffee alfresco, while watching life on the street go by... The art galleries and antique shops on Staunton Street and Hollywood Road add their bit to the "cultural ambience" of this area.

 

Getting to SoHo is quite easy: From MTR-Central, take exits G or D-1 to small Pedder Street, turn right to Queen's Road Central and walk along it for a minute or two (you'll also have to cross it to the other side). Turn left to Cochrane Street and hop on the Central-Mid Levels Escalator that takes you right there... You can also walk up through Pottinger (Stone) Street and turn right to Lyndhurst Terrace, which brings you right to the heart of SoHo

If coming from LKF: From D'aguilar, turn left to Wellington, and from there to Lyndhurst Terrace (It's a few minutes walk).

 

Here are some of SoHo's most recommended venuesStaunton's Bar & Café (a great place to see and to be seen...), I Caramba (Mexican resto-bar), Blue door (one of Hong Kong's most popular jazz bars), Joyce is not here (a combination of a bar, café and gallery, with easygoing ambience and nice food), Scirocco (a Mediterranean style resto-café), Taste Better Curry (This small and simple-looking restaurant specializes in delicious curries and serves a decent selection of them...), Orange Tree (an upclass restaurant, serving Dutch - International cuisine), Brasserie Le Fauchon  (this cute, little brasserie serves beautiful French cuisine at reasonable prices), The Press Room (Press Room is a modern interpretation for the classic French Brasserie), La Pampa (Argentinean grill and steakhouse), Chilli Fagara (serving excellent Szechuan cuisine), Nepal (Nepalese cuisine) and DiVino Wine Bar & Restaurant (This trendy Italian resto-bar is one of SoHo's most popular venues).

.

ZUJI Hong Kong : Fantastic Flight Fares ! 

Sheung Wan area, west of Central and right under SoHo and Hollywood Road, is characterized mostly by historic streets with many traditional Chinese shops.  The area, which can be described as "The Chinese heart of old Hong Kong", is one of the territory's oldest urban settlements, and it might not be the place to take your date for a romantic intermezzo, it is certainly the right area to look for authentic Chinese eateries and restaurants, where no nonsense delicious food is served.

 

Here are some of Sheung Wan's most recommended eating houses: Tim's Kitchen (a tiny private-kitchen restaurant that serves some of the best traditional Cantonese cuisine in Hong Kong), Sheung Hing Chiu Chow (one of the best places in Hong Kong to taste Chiu Chow (Teochew) cuisine), Ho Choi Seafood Restaurant (Cantonese seafood restaurant), Po Lin Yuen Vegetarian Restaurant (excellent vegetarian-Cantonese food and a great variety too), Lin Heung Lau (this excellent teahouse has been serving delicious Dim-sum and traditional Chinese tea for God knows how many years), Kau Kee Noodles (this small corner shop is famous for its legendary Beef Brisket  and Sang Kee Congee Shop (serving some of Hong Kong's most authentic congees).

3) Wanchai and Admiralty : A proper fusion of upclass restaurants, chic bars, girlie clubs and authentic eateries...

Admiralty and Wan Chai lie east of Central and are characterized by modern office buildings, hotels and shopping malls.  Wan Chai is one of the busiest commercial areas in Hong Kong with many small and medium sized companies, various shopping centres and numerous bars, discos, cafés and dining venues... especially along Lockhart Road.

 

Getting to Wanchai and Admiralty: Lockhart Road can be accessed via exits A-1 and C of MTR-Wanchai.  Admiralty's Pacific Plaza is easily accessed from MTR-Admiralty (Exits C-1 / F).

 

Here are some of our most recommended bars, restaurants and nightspots in Wanchai : Flying Pan (Hong Kong's best "all day breakfast".  The restaurant is open 24 hours a day / 7 days a week), Coyote Bar & Grill (a Tex-Mex resto-bar), 1/5 (One Fifth) Nuevo (This Michelin awarded resto-bar serves International and Spanish cuisine in a tranquil environment...), Skitz (one of Wanchai's most favorite nightspots), Carnegie's (plenty of "special offers" and "Happy hour deals"... and good 1980s dancing music), Secret Garden (specializes in traditional Korean cuisine) , Chili Club (This casual, down to earth eatery, serves some of the best Thai food in Hong Kong), Victoria Harbour Seafood Restaurant (some of the most delicious dim sum specialties in Hong Kong), American Peking Restaurant (a Hong Kong culinary institution, serving Chinese-Pekinese cuisine for the last forty years), Eighteen Brook (This well-known restaurant serves excellent Cantonese cuisine in a pleasant environment), Che's Cantonese Restaurant (specializes in Cantonese cuisine and is well-known for its splendid Dim-sums), Fook Lam Moon (a Hong Kong culinary legend) and Golden Bauhinia Cantonese restaurant (an award-winning restaurant, serving some of the best Cantonese cuisine in Wanchai area).

 

In Admiralty : Ye Shanghai (a superb Shanghainese dining experience), Thai Basil (one of the best Thai restaurants in Hong Kong), Restaurant Petrus (one of Hong Kong's most luxurious and romantic restaurants, serving superb French cuisine), Dan Ryan's Chicago Grill (great American food, served in American size portions), Lobster Bar and Grill (a splendid resto-bar, with a lovely jazz bar next door) and Metropolitan Cafe (excellent all-day-dining, with a good choice of salads, pastas, rotisserie meats, breakfasts, sandwiches 'quesadillas' and what not...)

4) Causeway Bay : "Little Japan", where some of Hong Kong's trendiest shopping malls can be found...

Causeway Bay, east of Wanchai, is Hong Kong's trendiest shopping district.

        

The small cluster of streets around MTR-Causeway Bay houses some of the city's best department stores, shopping malls and prestigious shops.  Hong Kong yuppies just love the area and consider it as the city's "fashion barometer" - The place where you go when you want to know what's new and "in"...

 

Just like Central, Causeway Bay is not a dining and entertainment district per se, but with so many exclusive shops and such traffic of high heeled shoppers, there are, naturally, far more than a few fantastic restaurants and nightspots around.

 

Here are some of our best liked venues in Causeway Bay: Wasabisabi (trendy, ultra-modern and superb restaurant, specializes in contemporary Japanese cuisine), Zeffirino Ristorante (a superb Italian restaurant), Green Willow Village Restaurant (wide selection of Shanghainese and Pekingese specialties... reasonable prices), Pokka Café (one of Causeway Bay's best cafés), Entrecote (As its name suggests, this highly rated French restaurant is famous for its charcoal grilled steaks), Oceanna (specializes in fine Italian cuisine with a modern-international touch, as well as in oysters), Sushi Hiro (This excellent restaurant serves some of the best Sushi and Sashimi in Causeway Bay...), Sorabol (one of the best Korean restaurants in Hong Kong), Harakan (This excellent restaurant is particularly known for its fresh, top quality Sashimi and Sushi), Ajitomi (Kushi-yaki and Yakitori meat skewers are the specialty here, and the menu features an extensive selection of them...), Habitu Ristorante the Garden (this splendid restaurant specializes in superb southern Italian cuisine), Fu Sing Shark fin Seafood Restaurant (serves some outstanding dim sum and Cantonese fare in an elegant and hushed environment) and New Chui Wah Restaurant (a rather simple, but extremely popular Chinese eatery).

5) Victoria Peak (The Peak) : Where you can enjoy dining with a breathtaking view

The Peak, as it is commonly known, is probably Hong Kong's most popular tourist attraction. The million dollar views of the city and the harbour are simply spectacular... Especially at night, when the countless skyscrapers are flashing in millions of dazzling lights.

 

Our most recommended venues include Café Deco (a good choice of both Asian and western delicacies, and a great view...), Bubba Gump (seafood, and shrimps in particular...), The Peak Lookout (a fabulous restaurant is located in a charming colonial house), Tien Yi (an upclass restaurant, serving superb contemporary Chinese cuisine) and Tsui Wah, which is an offshoot of one of the most popular cha chaan tengs (Hong Kong style teahouse-café) in the city.

6) The Southern coast (Aberdeen, Repulse Bay and Stanley ) : Alfresco seaside dining at its best.

Only a short drive away from the city's hustle and bustle, on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island, it's a different world altogether...  Some of the territory's nicest beaches can be found here, surrounded by forest-clad mountains that fall dramatically to the picturesque coves... Small towns where life is much less hectic accommodate seafront bistros and cafés where you can have your glass of wine 'alfresco', enjoying the sea breeze... 

  

Originally built as a fishermen village around one of Hong Kong's most ideal typhoon shelters, Aberdeen is, perhaps, the least exotic of Hong Kong's seaside towns, but it's a good place to see Hong Kong's "East-meets-West" attitude... "Boat people" still live their life on traditional Sampan boats, next to glitzy multi-million yachts, and old Chinese temples are shadowed by modern high-rises...

  

Aberdeen's most recommended venues include Jumbo Kingdom (Hong Kong's iconic floating restaurant, serving Chinese-Seafood) and Top Deck (one of Hong Kong's most pleasant places to dine alfresco, located on the top deck of the Jumbo floating restaurant).

Repulse Bay, an upmarket Monte Carlo-looking seaside suburb, is built along one of Hong Kong's most picturesque bays, halfway between Aberdeen and Stanley.  It boasts a beautiful sandy beach, with all sorts of facilities and a few 'alfresco' cafés and bistros... (Try to avoid it on weekends though, as it can really get crowded...) Deep Water Bay, next door, is not as famous as Repulse Bay and looks almost "deserted" compared to its more popular neighbor, but that doesn't necessarily mean it is not good... It boasts the usual shebang of facilities you would expect to find in a properly managed beach, and the sea is just as gorgeous...

 

Recommended restaurants and cafés in Repulse Bay and Deep Water Bay include: The Verandah Restaurant (one of Hong Kong's most classic and romantic restaurants), Coco Thai (excellent seaside restaurant, serving fabulous Thai cuisine in a lovely environment), COCOCABANA (a lovely seaside restaurant, serving gorgeous Mediterranean food) and Spices (specializes in the cuisines of Southeast Asia).

  

Stanley is a lovely little town located on a picturesque peninsula, just a few kilometers east of Repulse Bay, on the south shore of Hong Kong Island.  Once a small fishermen village, the town attracts tourists and locals who come here to enjoy the beautiful beaches, the marvelous scenery and, of course, the famous market.

  

Our most recommended venues in Stanley are : The Boathouse (a Mediterranean-style resto-café-bar, with lovely seafront balconies), Shu Zhai (a splendid teahouse, specializing in the "Dan Jia" cuisine of Hong Kong's boat people), Lucy's (this small and cozy restaurant serves home style French-Mediterranean food), Saigon (Excellent, popular Vietnamese restaurant that combines traditional cooking with "modern twist"...), Wildfire (contemporary cuisine with heavy Italian influence, and lovely sea views...), Mijas Spanish Restaurant (also in historic Murray House), and Ocean Bay (a seaside resto-bar on the promenade,serving nice western food and beers).

7)Tsim sha Tsui : One of Hong Kong's most lively and energetic areas.

Often abbreviated as TST, Tsim Sha Tsui is Kowloon's most vivid and bustling entertainment and shopping area, and one of Hong Kong's busiest districts.

 

Although fairly small in size, Tsim Sha Tsui is chockfull with shopping, dining and entertainment venues, as well as with tourist attractions... Moreover, Tsim sha Tsui itself boasts a few different Wine & Dine areas - Each with its own character and ambience...

 

Knutsford Terrace: A small terrace street, packed with bars, pubs and restaurants, is Tsim sha Tsui's smaller version of LKF (although the ambience here is far more relaxed...).  It can be easily accessed through Nathan Road: If coming from the waterfront / MTR (exits A-2 or B-1), turn right to Kimberley Road and then left, to the stairway that leads from the street to the terrace (next to the junction of Kimberley and Carnarvon).  If coming from Chatham Road South, turn to Observatory Road and walk along it for 2 - 3 minutes, until you see the entrance to Knutsford Terrace on your left.

 

Recommended venues in Knutsford Terrace includeBahama Mama's (an easygoing bar, with nice dancing music and great pub grab), Island Seafood & Oyster Bar (one of Tsim sha Tsui's best places for seafood), Tutto Bene (serving fabulous south Italian food that combines traditional Italian cooking with some of the chef's own innovations...), Papa Razzi (serves some of the best pizzas in Hong Kong in a lovely surroundings...), Apgujeong Korean tent bar (serving hearty portions of authentic Korean food in a lovely environment), Black Stump (an Australian steakhouse and grill), Il meglio Ristorante di Venezia (Italian) and A touch of Spice (Thai and Southeast Asian).

If Knutsford Terrace is Tsim sha Tsui's answer to LKF, than Ashley Road somewhat resembles Wanchai's Lockhart Road, with a good mix between restaurants, resto-bars and nightspots (forget about the girls though...).

.

Getting there: From Star Ferry Pier take Canton Road (along Harbor City), turn right to Peking Road and you'll be there after a minute (It's a five minutes walk from the pier).  From Nathan Road and MTR-Tsim sha Tsui (exits A-1 or E): turn to Peking Road or Haiphong Road and you'll be there at no time (the entrance from Haiphong is through a building)

 

Our recommended restaurants and entertainment venues in Ashley Road are: Ned Kelly's Last Stand (a great Jazz bar and restaurant, with "wild west" ambience...), Mes Amis (a very popular nightspot), Weinstube (serving delicious home style German and Austrian food, together with some good beers and wines), Gaylord Indian Restaurant (This excellent Indian restaurant has become a landmark in Hong Kong's culinary scene) Jimmy's Kitchen (an 80 years old culinary institution, serving familiar international specialties...), Sushi One (A very popular Japanese restaurant) and La Taverna (has been serving splendid Italian cuisine in a romantic ambience for more than thirty years).

 

Hillwood Road, north of Kimberley Road and Knutsford Terrace (the section between Nathan Road and Pine Tree Hill Road), has been nicknamed "Hillwood SoHo" although it doesn't resemble Hong Kong's SoHo that much... There are a few good Chinese and Asian restaurants here, alongside some nice cafés...

Lo Chiu Vietnamese Restaurant and Tai Woo Restaurant (one of Hong Kong's best Cantonese restaurants) are particularly recommended.

 

Classy restaurants, as well as some nice cafés, can be found in Tsim sha Tsui's five star hotels, as well as in the large, glittering shopping malls... Here are some the best:

Ruth's Chris Steak House in Mody Road's Empire Centre (a Louisiana steakhouse and restaurant, serving some of the best steaks in Hong Kong), Harlan's (contemporary-western cuisine and superb steaks), Super Star Seafood Restaurant (serving some of the best Cantonese food in Hong Kong), Dong Lai Shun (an opulent restaurant, specializes in the Huaiyang cuisine), The Lobby - Peninsula Hotel (one of Hong Kong's most sought-after meeting places...), Chesa (serving superb Swiss and central European cuisine in a pleasant environment), Gaddi's (located within the classic Peninsula Hotel, this superb restaurant is considered as one of Hong Kong's best), Felix (an ultra stylish resto-bar on the top floor of the Peninsula. Designed by Philippe Starck), Spoon (Chef Alain Ducasse's creation - one of Hong Kong's landmark restaurants), The Bostonian (serveing outstanding seafood and grill dishes in a charming environment), T'ang Court (Named as one of the world's best hotel-restaurants by several international magazines, T'ang Court serves world-class Cantonese cuisine in a swanky environment) and Sabatini (this luxurious restaurant is the Hong Kong outlet of one of Rome's best known restaurants...).

...................................................................................................................................   

8) Mong Kok, Yau ma Tei and Kowloon City : Chinese traditions, authentic markets and plenty of ethnic restaurants and eateries...

Mong Kok and Yau ma Tei house some of the metropolis' best (and most authentic) ethnic restaurants and eateries, alongside some great open-air markets, where almost everything can be bought... The two districts are very popular among locals and tourists alike, both for their low prices and for the authentic atmosphere.

 

Kowloon City, northeast of Mong Kok, is hardly frequented by foreign visitors, which is a shame, really, cause other than the Kowloon Walled City Park (which is worth visiting in its own right), it does boast some excellent eating places...

Our list of recommended restaurants in Mong Kok and Yau ma Tei includes: Little Fusion (good selection of Italian, French and Japanese specialties...), Nathan Congee and Noodle (this humble eatery has been serving some fabulous congees, noodles and dumplings for the last 40 years or so...), Curry A La King (a curry lovers paradise, serving a wide selection of scrumptious curries from different Asian cuisines), Mongkok Fung Shing Restaurant (specializes in traditional Shunde cuisine, from the Shunde area, in the Pearl River Delta, and serves some superb dim-sum), Fu Kei Restaurant (very popular restaurant, specializing in several Chinese cuisines...

...................................................................................................................................  

9) Lei Yue Mun : Delicious fresh seafood and lovely harbor views

Alongside Lamma Island and Sai Kung, Lei Yue Mun is one of Hong Kong's best places to enjoy fresh seafood.  Simply pick your live seafood from one of the numerous aquariums in front of the restaurants and let the chef take care of the rest while you relax and enjoy the harbor view...

 

To complement the dining experience, take a walk to the nearby village, where you can experience the true spirit of a traditional Hong Kong fishermen village, or at least what has been left of it...

 

How to get to Lei Yue Mun :

Take bus No. 14 C from the bus terminus, next to MTR-Kwun Tong (exit A-1 to Yue Man Square) and alight at Shung Shun Street – ( 崇信街 , next to the seafront promenade). The same bus can also be taken from the bus terminus next to MTR - Yau Tong.

 

You can also take a walk from MTR-Yau Tong: Leave the station via exit A-2 and continue walking along Cha Kwo Ling Road (road should be on your right), which changes its name to Shung Shun Street, until you see Lei Yue Mun on your left (It is 15 minutes' walk, but a cab won't cost you too much either).

 

All the seafood restaurants are located along Hoi Pong Rd. / Praya Road (opposite Shung Shun St., on the other side of the small typhoon shelter).

 

Here are the places that we recommend :

 

Gateway Cuisine / Tai Fat Hau Restaurant (Cantonese Seafood)

This is one of Lei Yue Mun's fanciest restaurants. It is located at a strategic point and the elegant dining room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows through which you can enjoy stunning harbor views...

 

Prices are slightly higher than the average but the dinning experience is superb: set-menus works around HK$ 300-350 per diner

10) Sai Kung and its environs : Some of Hong Kong's loveliest outdoor dining

Sai Kung is a small and charming waterfront town, with plenty of seaside cafés, excellent seafood restaurants, lovely fishermen-village-ambience and a bustling expatriate community…

 

Other than to enjoy the leisurely ambience and the good food, you can rent a Tanka Junk and go on a cuttlefish catching trip, or opt to one of the beautiful islands across Port Shelter Bay and the nature reserves

 

Recommended venues in Sai Kung Town include: Anthony's Catch (possibly one of Hong Kong's best seafood restaurants, serving some fabulous Italian-style seafood), Sauce ( serves hearty portions of European and International food in a very nice environment), Jaspa's (one of Sai Kung's most favorite cafés), Tung Kee Seafood Restaurant (a well known waterfront seafood restaurant) and Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant (one of Sai Kung's largest and most popular seafood restaurants).
