Hong Kong restaurants
The following restaurants are divided into three categories:
Expensive (over HK $ 500)
Moderate (HK $
250-500 ) Inexpensive (up to HK $ 250)
It is the average price for a three-course meal and a glass of the cheapest wine or a comparable drink. Service charge or tip are not included.
A 10% service charge is usually added to the bill at the end. While this fee is theoretically not mandatory, it is considered extremely rude to have it deducted from your bill (except for very poor service).
Since opening in 1953, the Peninsula Hotel’s main restaurant has served its ever grateful guests with fine French cuisine and fine wines.
The chandeliers and the blue and gold interior of the spacious restaurant give Gaddi’s an elegant touch. Live music and candlelight make it the ideal place for a romantic dinner. The three-course lunch menu and the five-course evening menu are recommended. Reservations are recommended in the evening. Gentlemen must wear a jacket.

When the sky is clear, the Café Deco has one of the best views in the world, a panoramic view of the Hong Kong harbor, which is simply unmatched, especially at night.

The Orange Tree
The multi-award winning The Orange Tree offers Dutch colonial cuisine (more or less meat-based French cuisine) such as pickled herring and lamb fillet.

Anyone who makes it to the pretty, seaside village of Cheung Sha, south of the island of Lantau, will certainly not want to return to the city as quickly.

Good Luck Thai
In Wing Wah Lane with its charming, chaotic atmosphere, inexpensive Thai and Malaysian open-air restaurants are crowded together. One of the most popular is Good Luck Thai, which is especially recommended for green curries and pad Thai and is very close to Central’s party zone, “Lan Kwai Fong”. The Good Luck Thai is open until 2 a.m. and is therefore perfect for those who are hungry at a late hour.
Address: Central, 13 Wing Wah Lane, Hong Kong
Telephone: 28 77 29 71.
It is best to reserve a table at this inexpensive and chic Vietnamese restaurant, as a visit is usually associated with queuing.
The big attraction is the wonderfully scented bowls of Pho, but the Specials menu is just as packed with delicious dishes as grilled pork and herb balls, which are served skewered on lemon grass angels.
Service is quick and friendly, and the food is extremely cheap for the high quality.
