We had received a few coupons for Al's Diner from our serviced flat. I had an appointment on the same street so took the opportunity to look for Al's - it was the one with no one inside (or out for that matter) except the staff and one patron. The rest of the bars were filling up yet Al's remained... More

Well...a bar that's located in LKF which expat areas. Food was so so.. it's a bar, what do you expect. But it will be very interesting bar when HK 7 is on or football game. It's a great to have a sip of drinks before dinner in this place.

AL’s diner is situated at the top of the hill in Lan Kwai Fong District of Hong Kong Island. It is filled with British expats enjoying the booze, 80s retro classics and football when any English teams are playing. It gets busy and boisterous on Fridays and Saturdays with dancing on the tables and a raucous signaling to the hits... More

With a great vantage point in the Lan Kwai Fong area, with frontage on to the road and right across from the China Bar, Al's diner has a lot going for it. I did not find the bar to be dirty but I did think the service was desultory; half hearted and without any sense of welcome. So be it.... More

Tried Als Diner on my visit to Hong Kong. Its well located at the beginning of lan Kwai fong. Great 70's and 80's music along with great food. And drinks. The Vodka jello shots are a signature must try. Will be back

Music is terrible, food is terrible, the place is dirty and the clientele are too. Jelly shots all around and then get out of there fast. That said, even the jelly shots are nasty.

I have to say my husband and I used to be huge fans of Al's Diner. Many a night we would dance the night away to 80's music. Granted we haven't been back for over a year, but after dinner there tonight, I wonder why we ever liked the place. The food was pretty much the same as before but... More
