This place was a back up as the other Vietnamese place was already fully booked. This place do not take any booking at all. Best to come in a bit early with your patience. Menu was pretty straight forward. Good variety and just hits all the vital food items you ought to try. Service was pretty terrible. I understand that... More

Thankfully the food here is good (not absolutley fantastic) but good, slightly over priced, but that is HK for you. These guys dont have a reservation policy which is ok because they get super busy, however I was at the door and my friends were 5 minutes away they did not allow me to sit down... EVEN WHEN I CALLED... More

Hi Bleehk, Thank you for your review. Regarding our reservation policy: we seat guests on a first come, first served basis, and only seat parties once all guests have arrived. We believe this is the fairest and most efficient way to accommodate our guests, as it allows us to give more accurate wait times and ensure that whole parties, who... More

Really enjoyed this small, crowded, busy restaurant. 4 of us were squeezed onto a table but it wasn't totally uncomfortable. A smiling waitress was very helpful and we enjoyed 5 entrees and a main with rice, all shared. The flavours were great and well done. The serving sizes good and overall an enjoyable meal. Bill came out at HK$1600 for... More

With a recent influx of private kitchens and bars that are increasingly focused on hype and 'coolness', Chom Chom is an extremely welcome addition to the Hong Kong Soho scene. It is a throwback to the neighborhood joint that is welcoming to everyone with the huge addition of a world class chef behind the helm. Have ate their several times... More

Chom Chom is part of the new breed of bourgeois dining spots in soho. The menu is interesing modern interpretation of vietnamese food, but we left a bit dissapointed by the quality. You cen tell when a kitchen uses proper ingredients (at least if you know how to cook you can). There were some interesting flavours, but most of the... More

Is it so hard to find good service in HK?! This place has really good food, lots of sharing plates and stand out dishes. We had a lot and all was 4*. The service however was AWFUL. Hubby ordered a cocktail with certain type of gin and we watched them pour a much cheaper gin into it as they made.... More

While the menu has a limited selection, most of the dishes we tried were very good. Pho roll with beef was nice. I did not like the tuna roll so much. While not a fan of raw food, i quite enjoyed the Salmon tartare with a bit of spicy flavour. No reservations taken so if going with a group you... More
