We went as a group of 4 and enjoyed it. It wasn’t the best food but still good flavours. And as it is tapas style you get to order more things and try various dishes which was nice. Very good overall.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up

street party every weekend. Although everything seems
