Created for comfort, Craftsteak provides a memorable fine dining experience. A feature of the restaurant is the open fire cooking on the custom made charcoal fired grill which creates wonderful hints of smoke flavor to the sizzling grills. Classic starters, the freshest cuts of steaks from Australia, USA and Canada as well as poultry, seafood and vegetables, all presented with a selection of individual sauces, are there to enjoy in an atmosphere created for comfort. Famous for its great selection of world wines, many available by the glass.

We dropped in for our last meal on Holiday in Hong Kong. Just off the outdoor escalator in Soho area. We received a friendly welcome. Steaks were really very good. Loads of flavour and cooked as ordered. Fries were crisp. Good choice of wine. Overall an enjoyable meal and experience eating here. Seems reasonably priced compared to other Hong Kong... More

Great little steak restaurant just off the Mid Level Escalators. The food and service were excelent without the usual sky high Hong Kong price. The steaks we had were as good as you'd get from any Prime steakhouse and the sides were delicious.

Went here with a couple of colleagues after work. Both the steaks and the service were average; not bad, but nothing to write home about. It was fairly busy, but the service was fairly slow and our steaks took ages to come out.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
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.
