Hong Kong Island Restaurants

Where to Eat in Hong Kong Island

With so many people in such a relatively small island there's bound to be a lot of hungry mouths to feed. Hong Kong's restaurateurs are an entrepreneurial lot so expect the weird and wonderful alongside the stately and traditional when it comes to dining out on the island.

As in the rest of the city, street food is well worth checking out and given the cosmopolitan nature of the area pretty much every nation's cuisine is represented in Central.

Kau Kee Restaurant

This is beef brisket noodle soup at its best but with absolutely no frills attached.

Predominantly Asia cuisine, this upstairs restaurant in the heart of the bar area wastes little money on décor, with the only nod to fine dining apparent in its white tablecloths.
