Located right in the heart of Kowloon, a 10 minute walk from Harbour city mall. I was staying at the Marco Polo so decided to venture out to this restaurant. It is not fancy at all. In the basement, I had to wait for 5 minutes, was alone so got a table fairly quickly. Had the hot and sour soup... More

We were staying near this restaurant and finding many of the restaurants in the area were aimed at tourists and so very expensive. We found this restaurant through tripadvisor. It does appear to be favoured by locals more than tourists and the prices were really reasonable for this area. There was a huge menu which made it hard to choose.... More

Very busy place. Make sure to reserve for lunch or dinner.Mostly attended by locals. Always fresh food. Try hairy crab dishes when in season. Fried boneless duck is served like beijing duck. Very crispy. Sweet and sour braised fish is a favorite.

We were after a quality but not top $$$ Asian restaurant along the bottom end of Nathan Road. Using TripAdvisor, this restaurant is one of the first mid-range restaurants identified when descending from the top rankings. A fantastic meal. The tastes were rich, fresh, light and clean. No heavy canned sauces here. The dumplings - a Shanghai speciality - were... More

This place is located down an unassuming set of stairs but serves up great sweet and sour fish and shrimp omelette. Because it's good it's very popular, so come early or make a booking. If you arrive early, be prepared to be asked to eat and vacate your table in a hurry.

Found this restaurant via Tripadvisor and coincidentally it was near to the hotel I'm staying. Reception staff was good. She managed to squeeze out a table for us although there was no reservation. Kudos to that. Service standards were good. Staff was attentive. Food was served pretty quickly although the restaurant was full. Food servings were pretty generous and can't... More

Small door leads you downstairs to a noisy busy full restaurant. Food was excellent. Service was a bit invasive and loud but when the good is this good you take the abuse. The turnover of people was fast but you do not feel rushed because the food comes fast and disappears fast as well.

We were going to go to this restaurant due to the good reviews but after looking at the menu we saw shark fin was available. Do not support this barbaric industry!

The food at the restaurant was excellent. I visited HK for less than a week and chose to stop twi e at this place. Great prices for great diversity of foods. The dumplings and beef with vegetables were great. The location is prime, perhaps a bit unnoticable. It is right accross the iSquare shopping mall, you find only a door... More
