If you are missing a good old Sunday roast then this is your place it's heaven here, the entrance is a little stairway at the front but upstairs it's a haven away from the bustle

This restaurant was recommended by a fiend living in Hong Kong, and we can see why.. Whilst the menu is not extensive, what it lacks in breadth it makes up for in quality. We all had exactly the same dishes which were a beet root and goats cheese salad, followed by salmon wrapped in fill pastry with spinach. Both were... More

we'd been disappointed with HK's food, but were glad to experience our early meal at Pawn sat out on the 2nd floor balcony on a balmy (but not too oppressive) evening. Good quality, but don't expect great advice on your choice of wine!

35 degrees and 90% humidity - I LOVE Hong Kong! Dave and Lucy had taken me to one of those crazy high-tec supermarkets so I could buy a Kindle for the flight home. Out on Johnston Street the sidewalk was a crush of human flesh - trams cluttered by, overloaded with people, mostly engrossed in their smartphones. We found the... More

This is an historic building in downtown Wanchai. The bar is on level two. I recommend you sit outside on the large balcony where seats are comfortable. There's a fair selection of beers, wines and cocktails, but the bar snacks are very limited and they suck. Nonetheless I recommend The Pawn if you're meeting for a quick beer before heading... More

This is one of my fav places in Hong Kong for both drink and dine. Food here is always changing with a limited choice of selected, unique dishes which are british inspired. Place is over 3 floors while 1st floor is mainly for drinking only and second floor for dining. The location is an old pawn house from some 110... More

Great venue for a nice dinner with friends or a romantic date. The atmosphere is great, in an old lane house which today is placed in the middle of Wanchai area. Food is fantastic and drinks, despite their price, are also good!

sure, the ambiente is nice as others wrote. The bar on the ground floor, but the restaurant is on the 2nd floor. The meal is declared organic and really overpriced even compared to other Hongkong restaurants. e.g. 1/2 chicken 220HK$. We were 3 people and had no appetizers, just 3 main courses, 2 glasses of wine, 1 bottle water and... More

This bar and restaurant is a nice hideaway in the city center. It is like stepping into another city walking up the stairs into the bar. The service is great. The outside seating area is really comfortable with lovely surroundings and you can watch the trams go up and down the street. Would highly recommend this place for a date... More
