Expensive by local standards, a bit more than I'd expect to pay in Sydney. Chicken with jellyfish had neither life nor flavour. Manager visibly invented a charge for steamed rice that did not appear in the menu. Given nature of dishes and cultural preferences hard to believe most of them aren't eaten with rice so if there is no charge... More

The entrance to Wu Kong is not on Nathan Road but is quite easy to find. The basement restaurant had mainly local customers when we went in for a late supper. That's normally a good sign, but our food was no better than average. Perhaps we would have fared better if we had arrived earlier, because the place was recommended... More

We decided to go to this restaurant last night as the prices looked reasonable compared to a lot of the restaurants in the area. We were lucky to get a table for two as the place was very busy with locals which we consider to be a good indicator of good food. The menu contained very different dishes to those... More

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.
