Which is your favourite restaurant in Hong Kong?

Roshini Chotrani – Native English Teacher at Box Hill International School
Favourite restaurant: Coco Thai, Deep Water Bay

Thai food is the only cuisine that I wouldn’t mind eating for the rest of my life.  Thai cuisine is famous for its spiciness and unique combination of flavours  A lot of care is taken to make sure that each bite has the desired taste and Coco Thai proves that right. Its located in Deep Water Bay, the setting is nice with a fantastic view of the beach and it’s an amazing getaway from the busy city.  Coco Thai is perfect be it if you are looking for a romantic dinner with your better half or a chilled out outdoor dinner with your close friends and a chilled beer in one hand. At the same time it is affordable and not too pricey like many other restaurants in the city.

Chinmoy Lad – Account Manager at Conduit Communications

Favourite restaurant: Estudio Ibérico

Estudio Iberico serves delectable bite-sized servings from Spain with some of my favourites – chorizo, grilled prawns, iberico ham – at a very reasonable price. Don’t expect five-star service, but the efficiency of the staff and the casual atmosphere ensures that this is the ideal place to bring either family or a fun first date. You’ll certainly leave with your stomach satiated, your tongues astounded and, unlike many restaurants in Hong Kong, your wallets still full!

Yosha Gupta – VP at Monitise

Favourite restaurant: Chilli Fagara

Chilli Fagara by far definitely tops the list. For a vegetarian like me,  there are not many Chinese restaurants which would have a separate menu for vegetarians sans Chilli Fagara or Mask(for the Kowloonsiders). Which explains why Chili Fagara is such a hot favourite (literally! Watch out for the after effects)  for lots of Indians in Hong Kong. The chili dumplings, deep fried tofu and Sichuan beans are definitely to die for and always leave you coming back for more !

Sukrit Khatri – Associate at Deutsche Bank
Favourite restaurant: The Great Indian Kebab Factory
Living alone, with no culinary skills to boast off, eating outside is not just a luxury for me, but a necessity. But soon I realized  that there was only one way to enjoy this new-found independence – to try out different cuisines and restaurants! In my 2 years, I’ve had all kinds of cuisines: Shanghainese, Sichuan, Spanish, Italian, Lebanese, Korean, Mexican..etc. But, since, I come from India, nothing can quite replace my Dal Makhni and Lachha Parantha. Which is why I find my solace in The Great Indian Kebab Factory – so much so that I found a house near it! I’ve taken all my friends and family there, be it to enjoy the 9 course Kebab platter, or just for a quiet dinner over Mutter aur corn ki tikki, Meat Beliram and Lachha Parantha. The ambiance is the best amongst all Indian restaurants I have visited and I have never left the restaurant disappointed! One tip: If you do go there, definitely try their specialty, the paan ice-cream.

Favourite restaurant: Harrington’s

Living in a gastronomic capital like Hong Kong, the restaurant that gets voted as my favorite seems to change frequently. The eatery which currently has my vote is  Castelo Concept’s Harrington’s ,nestled in a quiet corner of  LKF. This bright and airy spot serves great lunch sets which feature a fantastic salad bar and mains like Lamb Rogan Josh, Pasta and more. Harrington’s also hosts a great Happy Hour and a Sunday Carvery, both of which are immensely popular.  In short, Harrington’s offers good and substantial eats, a lovely ambiance and stellar service by Jenny and her team.
