surprise the city has hundreds of fantastic restaurants to suit every
taste and budget.
The Hong Kong restaurants below have been grouped into three

including a glass of house wine or the cheapest equivalent; they do
not include service charge or tip.
A 10% service charge is almost always added to restaurant bills in
Hong Kong. In theory, this is discretionary, although in practice, it
is better not to challenge it, except in cases of exceptionally poor

Cuisine: South African
Anyone who makes it out to the lovely seaside village of Cheung Sha on
the south side of Lantau Island will certainly not want to leave after
sampling the South African beachfront fare, such as mixed barbecue or
kebabs. The big beachside verandah, large enough to seat 120 people,
is the perfect antidote to the insane bustle of Central.

views - the panorama of the harbour from Hong Kong Island's central
peak. The cuisine is a hugely diverse array of East and West, from

Maxim's Palace City Hall
Cuisine: Dim sum
It would be remiss to leave Hong Kong without having tasted some
traditional Cantonese dim sum, eaten locally for breakfast, lunch or
dinner. The queue for seats might be a little tedious when tummies are
grumbling but the wait is worthwhile given the quality of the
dumplings that are plonked on the table. Try the pork steam buns and
shrimp dumplings with chilli.

Telephone: 2521 1303.
Good Luck Thai

most popular is Good Luck Thai which is the perfect restaurant in Hong
Kong to eat green curries or pad thai before heading to Central's
party zone, ‘Lan Kwai Fong’, which is only minutes away. It’s open

Mongolian barbecue with a central area for diners to select their own
ingredients and fill their bowls with imaginative personalised

It’s best to book a table in advance at this cheap yet chic Vietnamese
restaurant because there is usually a long queue outside. The big
attraction is the deliciously fragrant bowls of pho but the ‘specials’
menu is also packed with tasty delights such as barbecued pork and
herb patties, which come skewered on a lemongrass stalk. The service
is fast and friendly, and the dishes are great value.
