Go Mexican

A very small restaurant. Food was alright. Portions were generous. If you are in a mood for a typical Mexican meal in a casual setting, try this restaurant.

Visited with some friends for a Saturday lunch and had a very good experience. Food was really good with a good selection of Mexican food and a great range of sauces and dips to suit all tastes. If you want it extra hot they can accommodate your taste. Wine menu wasn't the most extensive but was good enough for our... More

Awesome night out here. Food was great, portions massive, and the staff fun. Great atmosphere and the food as authentic as you are going to get in Asia. Love it

This is as close to authentic Mexican food as your going to get in Hong Kong. I love the chicken fajitas and the guacamole.

A little bit of a hike from the nearest MTR station and yesterday was the hottest recorded day in history for Hong Kong, but worth the trip. The cold bottled water is expensive though at $45HK each. We started with chips and queso and the chips were fresh and the queso was really good. Added a Sangria and was impressed.... More

What great surprise! This place is the best Mexican in HK. Good taste, fresh and authentic. Place is small and recommend reservation. Staff friendly. Good margarita and amazing food.

The food at Caramba is very good, quality ingredients, well seasoned and generous portions, what else can you ask for? Service was good and attentive. The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because the juices were not freshly squeezed (but price was as if they were), the tables are very small so if you want to share... More

Our family of four dropped in the other evening and ordered a few mains to share. We had the pulled pork burrito, pulled pork sliders and chicken nachos. Everything was really tasty, fresh and zinged nicely. No complaints either from our two fussy eaters (6 & 4). Whilst the portions were large and we'd def go back, a slight grumble... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
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 to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
