We were taken here by expats in the know. Fantastic authentic cantonese food in a classical setting. Service authentically chinese too so a little erratic. Would definitely go back !

Average food in a restaurant that felt rather cramped. Struggled to recognise the beef in two of the dishes. Kept getting bumped by passing waiters. There are far better restaurants near by.

If you want good Cantonese food, antique chinese atmosphere but want to eat in a quiet and relax place, this will be where you should go.

Whether it is for a business lunch or meal with friends, this restaurant is worth a visit every time I am in HK. The quality of the food is excellent. Love the ambience and the details of the restaurant. Try it.

I regularly use Island Tang for business lunches, particularly for those who have not spent much time in Hong Kong. The restaurant has that old Hong Kong feel, service is great and the food is outstandingly delicious. Well worth a visit for business or pleasure.

In a colonial posh atmosphere, it was a very nice lunch with Hong Kong classics such as Ha Gao. The fried rice is probably one of the best I have ever tasted.

This place is in a mall which was the first turn off for me. Second was the ambiance and third was the food. Food was subpar chinese at best. Very overpriced for what you get.

You may like Island Tang more than other Chinese luxury restaurants It is very expensive (around 1000 HKD per person) and frankly all disappointing : most of the clients are expats or visitors, westerners. Absolutely nothing original I. The taste, except it is not real Chinese food it is look alike at best, very sweet and heavy. In short ,... More

This was place was chosen by our friend it was a last minute decision but we managed to get a table for party of 9 during the busy lunch hour for dim sum. Upon arrival we were ushered to a long table as all the round table had been reserved. The place & atmosphere was very relaxing not the typical... More

Given the rating of this restaurant we expected something special to end a six week journey to HK and Australia, which has taken us to many good restaurants. We were rather disappointed by the the overall experience, particularly as we paid HK2000 for what was essentially three mains to share plus wine (which was HK700 of the total). It is... More
