Best Restaurants in Hong Kong

Eating is a way of life in Hong Kong and meal times aren't restricted to three a day. It's perfectly ok to snack a little something here and there. Bowls of noodles, dumplings and traditional roast goose and duck are all on offer at any time of the day. When it's time for something more substantial then make yourself comfortable in one of Hong Kong's many restaurants. This is a truly international city where you'll find everything from new Nordic cuisine to Northeastern Thai street food to dry-aged steak. Our Hong Kong guide features some of the city's local favourites and a few foreign imports.
