My wife and I have used this restaurant for years but, the more I've come, the more I've gone off the place. As others have said, the service style is abrupt (bordering on rude) even by Hong Kong standards, and the billing is iffy -...More

This is a Hong Kong institution. Though I used to live in Hong Kong, I never came here until last night, and am sorry I didn't come before. The Peking Duck is the big draw here, and it is very good. In a subtle way,...More

On our most recent trip to Hong Kong for the HK Sevens, our party of six dined in the American Restaurant on our first night. The peking duck, sizzling prawns, shredded crispy beef in chilli and chicken & cashew nuts never fail. Even though I'm...More

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.
Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye –
