The 5 best restaurants in Hong Kong you have to try


Hong Kong is a dining paradise with one of the highest ratios of restaurants per head in the world. With establishments striving to outdo each other on a daily basis in our city's fiercely competitive F&B industry, it can be hard to keep track of who's top dog at any one time. That's why we're bringing you the Time Out EAT List — an ever-changing selection of Hong Kong's hottest tables, updated on a monthly basis.

From long time favourites to super newbies, we've sorted everything from restaurants in some of Hong Kong’s best hotels to the city's most delectable streetside cheap eats. In short, this is whatever serves the best food in Hong Kong right now.

Amber (Central)

Amber holds many an accolade and deservedly so. Culinary director Richard Ekkebus dishes up incredible creations that are beautifully plated and that use only the finest ingredients. The food served is classic French fine dining with modern touches and Asian twists. It’s unforgettable, as is the service.

Islam Food (Kowloon City)

People come from all corners of Hong Kong for a helping of Islamic beef burgers. They also come here for the lamb curry and beef brisket noodles. Cheap as chips and tasty as hell if you are willing to wait. Meal for one without wine and service: around $50

Bo Innovation (Wan Chai)

Home to a fusion of traditional and new world Chinese cuisine, the food at Bo Innovation is intelligent, humorous and thoroughly thought out. Culinary excellence abounds and the service is beyond anything one ordinarily expects in Hong Kong.

The Chairman (Central)

Lauded as one of the best restaurants in Asia, The Chairman has been popular ever since it opened nearly 10 years ago. Why? Suppliers who offer the best seasonal produce – and it’s mostly organic at that – and no MSG. If there’s one thing you must try it’s the pigeon with “loongjing” tea and chrysanthemum, a classic dish that’s never left the menu.

Yardbird (Sheung Wan)

Even after nearly seven years in the business, Yardbird attracts diners by the hordes, thanks to being the kind of super hip izakaya/yakitori venue that not even Tokyo denizens would roll their eyes at. The chicken here is treated no differently than the finest piece of toro, that is, with love and care. And it returns the favour by donating literally every part of its body including the thigh, wing, neck, liver, tail or skin.
