Strangely KNEAD has almost every customizable sandwich/baguette but they didn't have a customized wrap which I KNEADED!!!Anyway, after asking they were able to customize one for me. I had the wrap with beetroot spread, brie, hummus and and blue cheese. As you can imagine the...taste was damn good with the tartness of the hummus and creamy brie complimented by the baby spinach leaves. Finished with teas. The green tea was good but I had to wait for it to cool down as the mug didn't have ears. Salad that my friend had;More

Knead has continued to be a very good, healthy food option on Jervois Street in Sheung Wan this spring and summer. They are open from 8am to 8.30pm during the week and 10am to 7pm on weekends. We stop by order from Knead at least...a couple times a month now. They have been consistently very good for us over the past few years. You'll find a small indoor seating area and they are happy to bag your sandwich and salad orders for take-away as well as delivery through deliveroo if you prefer to eat within the comfort of your home, office or area hotel. Orders usually arrive in 15-20 minutes. What I like about Knead is not only the fresh ingredients and lovely breads used for their sandwiches but I like they you can fully customise your orders choosing from a range of breads, spreads, meats, veg and other ingredients. They can also toast your sandwiches if you like. All food is prepared to order and they always taste great. Prices are high compared to your Subway, PRET, Grove and others selling sandwiches and wraps but sizes are generous and you'll quickly taste the difference in quality.More

Every time I eat from Knead on Jervois Rd. in Sheung Wan, I question myself as to why I don't pass by here more often. This is specialist shop that makes up delicious sandwiches. Opening hours are from 8am to 8.30pm (Mon to Fri) an...10am to 7pm (Sat and Sun). There is seating inside for around 10-12 people. Otherwise, you can just order take-away. Wall menu includes a small selection of sandwiches, salads and soup which you can order. Alternatively, just pick up an order sheet and come up with your own custom sandwich or salad which they will make for you. Orders take around 10-15 minutes to fulfil and are made with fresh, very good ingredients. They taste really good. During a recent lunch, we tried the toasted Beef Brisket and Spicy Tuna Melt sandwiches from the menu board. These were both great, just as good as the custom sandwiches taken from Knead in the past. They also do a few breakfast items which you'll see on the board just outside the shop in the mornings. In the end, if you are sandwich person, you knead to try specialist place on Jervois Road. Salads are pretty good as well. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.More

Nice little cafe - cosy when half full, tiny and packed when chock full of customers during lunch on a trendy little back street in Sheung Wan full of cafes and little restaurants. Near enough Central that it’s full of office workers during lunch. I...have read reviews (mostly ones from further back) that staff were rude or food portions were unsatisfactory but I have to say I have experienced neither. Been twice - First time was salad for lunch which I used Ritual to pick up in store (it was packed and ready to go by the time I arrived) and second time was breakfast early in the morning when I was the first and only customer. Service was fine both times with staff friendly and food portions were also excellent although it could be due to both my orders being build your owns. Prices err on the high side but again that could be because I did build your owns and I pretty much added everything into my salad and sandwich.... Coffee was decent but there are plenty of choices on the same street for more artisanal/fancy coffees like single origin pour overs. Knead’s focus is definitely on food and it’s wide selection of fresh and tasty ingredients and ability to customise their food (probably the reason for the slow service). Will definitely be back again especially if I’m just ordering out or get to avoid the rush hour.More

This small shop makes custom sandwiches and salads to eat in or take out. Big with locals, it can be packed at noon but it’s worth cramming in to order a bowl or sandwich, which comes quickly and is big, filling, and delicious. Multiple European...languages spoken. Items like home made hummus and felafels available, so for the traveller craving a taste of home, it’s a surprising discovery in the midst of a dense typical shopping street in Hong Kong. Win! Win! A healthy, updated throwback to the days when Hong Kong was full of expats from all over the world, it’s a fun place to eat and imagine you are a resident in this beautiful worldly city.More

Knead is a sandwich and salad specialist on Jervois Rd. in Sheung Wan. This is a place you go for really good, custom made sandwiches and salads. Opening hours are from 8am to 8.30pm (Mon to Fri) an 10am to 7pm (Sat and Sun). Seating...area is limited to 8-10 people but you can order take away. They have a small list of sandwiches and salads you can order. Otherwise, grab a card and a pencil and start marking what bread type, spread and ingredients you want (sandwich) or which leaf and ingredients you want for a salad. Take your cards to the cashier, pay and they will make your custom sandwich and/or salad. Knead has monthly special soups, cakes and a small selection of drinks as well. During a recent visit we had a roast beef, sun-dried tomato, arugula and gouda sandwich on toasted sour dough. It was very tasty. We also had a spinach salad with peppers, falafel and hummus. Less enjoyed to the sandwich, it was still a very good salad. In the end, Knead is more expensive than your run of the mill PRET or mass produced sandwich and wraps you can buy around Hong Kong. However, the quality and taste is considerably better. For that reason, we'll continue to pass by from time to time.More

Such a great concept, with a lot of choice. The panino was delicious. The location is perfect as well, right next to MTR station Sheung Wan (Exit A2). However, the service and staff is not that perfect at all. It didn’t seem that the employees...have a lot of fun werking at Knead. The service related conversations are very short and nobody is smiling. Missed opportunity, because this place has lots of potential.More

I was in Central, and was trying to find a place to eat during Chinese New Year, to my surprise, Knead was opened, so here I go. The staff there understands my need and they warned me about the possible contamination, however, the bread will...be prepared on separate tray. We ordered a tuna Caesar salad and tuna sandwich. Both of them were gluten free. The food was so tasty and I can taste the love. Highly recommended.More

Visited Knead recently for another very good light lunch. This is a healthy sandwich and salad specialist on Jervois Street. Opening hours are 8am to 8pm (weekdays) and 10am to 5pm (weekends). There are a few menu options but what is best is to order...a customised sandwich the way you like it. Just pick up a order card & pencil, then mark what bread, meat and topping choices you want and they will make your custom sandwich to order. Having mentioned the above, I went with menu - Roast Chicken, Tuna & Pesto sandwich on my last visit. It was a very good sandwich. Add sun-dried tomatoes and baby spinach and served on a pumpkin seed topped rye roll, this was just a gooooood sandwich, what should be expected at Knead. In the end, Knead is a safe and solid choice if you want something healthy, delicious and reasonably priced in the Sheung Wan area.More
