TST itself is touristy area, don't think the things there will be cheap. I don't really know any cheap and nice seafood, am searching too.

@jojolimmh, not in TST though- most of us will head to Sai Kung-but not those touristy restaurants, or to Sek O,or Lamma.

But frankly speaking, HK is not really a place for seafood. They still cannot do a proper chilli crab la.

And many of the seafood products are actually from Kota Kinabalu,and ......Phuket.

HK is actually famous for Cantonese style seafood. That means steamed fish, boiled fresh shrimp, prawns in chili sauce, etc. There are plenty of restaurants of various budget levels near where you are staying. Just keep in mind that best and cheap never go together.

My suggestion for a decent place without breaking the bank is Ho Choi at Empire Center on Mody Road of Tsim Sha Tsui East. The restaurants at Sai Kung often prey on both tourists and locals. Quality and price aren't always in a good balance there.

Or would I say fresh and cheap in the case of seafood.

Actually it is ok for us in Sai Kung- we know the people there well, but the place will definitely be favored by many- plastic chair and bare tables.

lai liew ha, cheese lobster- aiyah all come from Phuket, and to be frank I have my many fair chance tasting this in many areas of HK, they cannot do it to match what I had in batu kawan, or in Kukup la.

Also after I took my HK friends who are really into seafood tasting to KK- they keep mum already- now for seafood, KK or Phuket for them also

@Sammy-Thank u very much for yr info.

@Mktravel-Not only fresh n cheap(Reasonable price l mean, S$50/HK$250 per person). dont mind run down place as long is clean, fresh and the cooking is nice which is important as my taste bud r more to spicy n salty type.N most important not sharing table with others, not rowdy and noisy. Dont mind paying a little more if the food r good, prepared to spend S$100 max per person. Used to go to LI Yu Meng, food there was gd but l wanted to try somewhere new. Thought of gg Sai Kong for seafood, heard is good n something like Li Yu Meng.
