My 2nd time here and probably my last. Good location in IFC and much like a venus flytrap The staff manning the pastries and cashier are surly and hate their jobs. The expensive pastry is served on a cheap cardboard plate. My smoothie took 2...More

Sometimes all you need is a decent coffee and a bit of cake. 1081 Open Kitchen at IFC Mall met our needs and felt authentically European after many stops at places which were definitely not! The large windows with views gave the impression of space...More

This place is a great option if you're looking for a quick bite and fresh food. Their pastries and sandwiches/paninis are quite good. Their pizza also looks quite good.

Today, I visited with two other friends. As we ordered we informed the server to have our check separated. Food was amazing, I assure you. It was very crowded but it was okay. Also, I find the place a bit too dark. The disappointing part...More

We came to this mall on one of our final days in HK. A Grand mall I must say! The open kitchen restaurant looked really nice, a fab mix of casual and fine dining under the same roof. We wanted a sit down meal from...More

Very crowded and always long Q at cashier. Cashier so busy only processes driven & no customer service. Very focused in collecting money. Should have a separate counter/cashier for people who like to pay for drinks only instead of joining the Long Q. Food variety...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a

What time does the salad bar/boxes finish? We normally order at lunch, are they available at dinner?

The salad bar is not open for dinner. I think they stop with that around 5pm. Then, you are only able to order from dinner menu
