The restaurant has a stylish interior but is in a dull location on the outside of the train station.

The food and drinks were very expensive but what really spoiled our evening was the stupidly cold air conditioning. Everyone was wearing jackets. We twice asked if they would reduce the chill but they didn't. We had to borrow blankets from the staff. Anywhere that has a supply of blankets for customers has got it wrong!

The king crab was good but rather greasy and with no veg. The prawns tasted good but again were quite oily.

Not good value, not healthy, not warm and not in an attractive location.

We used to eat around Hong Kong Stadium before concert. This time wanted to try somewhere closed but new. This Mask restaurant was quite interesting. The interior was amazing and staff were at good service. We 2 persons ordered 4 items, all of which were the chef's recommendations. The appearance of each was closed to the picture on the menu. Tastes were good. Love most the salad and the cucumber pork roll. Very fresh & yum. Price of Drinks seemed a bit expensive!! Also we declined the two little pre-dinner "appetizer" bowls (these charged more than expected and not that yum, personally feeling). After an hour, We paid the bill of HK$410.

P.S. the restaurant was about 3m walking from Exit K of TST East station. Very convenient to take 1 stop to Honghom Stadium for our concert.

Booked a family dinner for 4 after reading very positive reviews on TripAdvisor and Google. And it didn't let me down.
Location: the location of this restaurant is very convenient. It's just next to Exit J1 of Tsim Sha Tsui East MTR station. So reaching this place from Hongkong island after a hectic sightseeing day was convenient.

Reservation: Was able to get a table on Friday night which was also a Good Friday. Booking over phone was very easy and convenient. The lady on the phone also helped us with directions.
Ambience: the interior is well decked up and definitely gives us a flavour of traditional culture. The arrangement for 2 seater tables is innovative where they are able to accommodate the tables in very effective way.

The place is little noisy, probably because everyone was in a good mood with a good tasty food. This place seems to be very popular with Indians ( may be due to the spice food it offers)

Food: Very traditional Chinese food offering. Typical Sichuan food offerings with variety of chicken, pork, seafood and beef. For PURE vegetarians there is a separate vegetarian menu. So I am sure many tourists will appreciate this option. The portions of the food good. The rice and noodle portions are sumptuous whereas the mains in meat section are not that big portion. So for 4 of us we ordered 5 different dishes (soup, 2 appetisers, 1 rice and 1 noodle). That was good enough.
The food test was awesome, very authentic and freshly prepared.

Price: quiet ok. I found mains dishes in meat are costly for example a dish of chicken in pepper and Sichuan sauce was HKD 178. Coz along with meat dishes we needed to order rice/ noodle separately. Other dishes prices were reasonable with the size of the portion. Overall we paid approx HKD 600 for 5 dishes with 4 people (without any drinks).

Overall a very nice place with convenient location and very tasty food. A must try if u love spicy food and want to try authentic Sichuan food.

We are Indian (one vegetarian) went there with our German Friends (both non vegetarians)... we were pleasantly surprised to have just our kind of food and that was cooked very well. This restaurant was suggested by a Local. I am happy, we took his advise. Will definitely come again.
