Went on a Saturday for the holiday brunch. Great atmosphere and excellent service. The food was really good and there was a lot of it.

The Pawn is a very well known restaurant in Hong Kong, we decided to have our anniversary dinner there and were just disappointed. The highlight of the night was the wine and our server, but the food wasn't good at all.

I only had drinks in the Pawn Botanicals Bar. The drink list is very extensive - so many great drinks/cocktails to choose from. I had a Garden Foraged Negroni which was delicious... and I only had one because prices are so expensive.

They ridiculously overcharged and thus be very careful when you check your bill! The bartender and waiter will put in extra drinks that you didn't order. Very unethical

The food was good. However the welcome was average. There was supposedly no outside table .. there were still many free when I left the restaurant . To be improved!!

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.
Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye –

We did not use a lift. There was a long narrow staircase from the street level to the second floor. I must confess it was not well marked. The staircase faced Johnston Rd.
