Restaurants in Hong Kong
Hong Kongers are famous for their love of food, so it’s no surprise that the city has hundreds of fantastic restaurants to suit every taste and budget.
The Hong Kong restaurants below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Expensive (over HK$500)
Moderate (HK$250 to HK$500)
Cheap (up to HK$250)
These Hong Kong restaurant prices are for a three-course meal including a glass of house wine or the cheapest equivalent. They don’t include service charge or tip. A 10% service charge is almost always added to restaurant bills. In theory, this is discretionary, although in practice, it is better not to challenge it, except in cases of exceptionally poor service.
