Unforgetable location and decor. Mediational relaxed eating Could not give you 10 out of 10 due to lack of good wholesome veggies to help soak up the wine

I’ve been to the bar section of The Pawn plenty of times but never before tried the restaurant. We had a set menu during a company event so despite how great the food was I’m guessing that the normal a’ la carte is even better....More

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.
