If you are looking for authentic and delicious food, this is the place! The service is very good and even though it is a little pricey it is definitely worth it!

Popped in for a quick dinner based on the reviews. Had a cocktail and the spicy ceviche. Ceviche was pretty good but the cocktails way almost all ice. 2 decent sips and it was gone. Well overrated for the cocktails.

This place is exactly what Wan Chai is missing on the Lockhart Road strip; a very good restaurant. The pork belly is exceptional as is the whole menu, good drinks and great staff. Wonderful discovery and will come back again for sure.

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.
