I've eaten here a few times and found the food and service good and will continue to come back when i can. It is an covered restaurant open at the sides to the elements, though they have roll down sides when it rains, there are fans to move the air and its good for people watching at Shek O and... More

This is a very casual hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Shek O which is best beach in HK Island, parking is always full so best to ride a motorcycle if you have one or take public transportation. We love their pepper squid, morning glory with chili, Phuket salad with shrimp & their tom yum gung is the best!

Shek O Thai is an institution. The village is one of the last bastions of old Hong Kong, with very little development (ignoring the golf course), and many ex-pats live there to get away from the bedlam of the city. We were a little early (evening opening is 5 to 5.30ish) so sat by the beach and people watched for... More

We hadn't been here for a while and wondered if the food would be as good as we remembered. It was! On a stormy weekday, when things were less frenetic than at weekends, we tucked in to a variety of dishes that included a barbecued fish, duck curry, minced chicken, salad and a Thai-style vegetable dish. We enjoyed them all,... More

We found this place through some expats living near this area and it came highly recommended. The food was excellent. The price for quality is very reasonable. The atmosphere is very casual. The menu has around 100 items so I am not sure if everything is as good as what we had. This is out of the way from central... More

This restaurant has, for years, been our replenishing spot after a long drive to the south side or after a leisurely hike from Siu Sai Wan. Unfortunately, after the latest weekend lunch, it just seemed like there was nothing special anymore; the pizzazz was missing. Maybe the menu needs to be revamped. Maybe adding a few spices and serving rice... More

We were 6 of us who went for lunch after a long hike in the Shek o area!! From the minute we entered we all felt a certain hostility and rudeness from the staff. Not one smile greeted us. In fact it was almost like they would have preferred us to not dine at their restaurant. They rushed us through... More

I had the worst meal there. I ordered prawns in a chili sauce and papaya salad. The salad was barely okay. No flavor but not horrible. The prawns were a greasy mess. I think they gave me all the heads. It was Really Really bad. The only good thing was the cold beer.
