Amazing food, great atmosphere, very attentive service - a wonderful culinary experience in Hong Kong! Book in advance, or expect to wait up to an hour for a table in the evening. Highly recommended!

Central
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
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

Description
Ho Lee Fook, which translates to “good fortune for your mouth” in Cantonese, is a funky Chinese kitchen inspired by old-school Hong Kong cha chaan tengs and the spirit of late-night Chinatown hangouts in 1960’s New York. Taiwanese-born chef Jowett Yu’s innovative cooking style reinterprets classic Chinese dishes and flavours with premium ingredients, modern techniques and a touch of humour.
