Deco has absolutely one of the most breathtaking restaurant
views on Earth – the panoramic views of the harbour
from Hong Kong Island’s central peak – are
particularly dazzling at night. The cuisine is a widely
diverse array of East and West, from exquisite steaks
to succulent sashimi and piping hot tandoori platters.
What is amazing is the consistent quality and great
value; even the Art Deco decor is a gem.
Dan Ryan’s is the quintessential resort for American
cuisine serving American portions, in the mall-style
setting of Pacific Place. The Sunday brunch is a popular
way to blow out a Sunday. Ribs, Hamburgers, American
beers, American cholesterol ... never mind California,
this is the real McCoy.
is a matter of opinion whether patrons come here for
the fine cuisine or the top-level view of Kowloon from
Felix’s glass-walled urinals. Designed by Philippe
Starck, the interior has various themes in its different
areas. Full of surprises, such as the capsule-like wine
room, a science-fictionesque cocktail bar, a communal
dining table and Karaoke disco, even the lift decor
has to be seen to be believed. Crossover food –
such as ginger and marinade striped sea bass with wasabe
mashed potatoes or hibachi fillet of beef – complete
with an amazing skyline and sky-high prices.
consistent award winner, The Orange Tree serves‘Dutch
Continental’ (really meat-heavy French) cuisine,
such as lamb fillets and delicate salted herring. With
a dark wood atmosphere, the restaurant is located right
beside the Mid-Levels Escalator and is superb for quiet
Sunday dinners and for people-watching.
awards for guessing the location of this stylish and
contemporary restaurant, although its modern British
food is far more refined than anything found on Old
Compton Street, in London’s Soho. So much so that
diners can search in vain for the British roots of the
diverse dishes, such as goat’s cheese risotto
or Gorgonzola and balsamic shallot tart. Very popular
for office lunches, and the superb set lunch menu offers
outstanding quality at HK$120 for three courses.
