Jaa Kitchen - a gem in the heart of central Hong Kong

Nestled in a quaint street bristling with history and character lies Jaa Kitchen, which like the meaning of it's name implies, yields a menu of homely dishes in an intimate and chique atmosphere, replete with an extensive collection of wines. A meal with some friends in the private dining room or a... read more

After a nine day beautiful cruise, where we were waited on hand and foot, and served the most exquisite food and wine, we thought we would struggle to come to grips with choosing a resturaunt and having to pay for it! My well travelled son told of JAA Kitchen so we tried it. Group of six and we were all... More

Read quite a lot about this place when it first opened so decided to bring the girls here for a nice dinner out. The first friend to arrive got seated at the worst table of the place - right next to the main entrance, in the middle of a very narrow walkway, and behind the cashier/bar serving area. When I...

Excellent little restaurant, with an eclectic, 1920's-esque feel, mirrored walls & beautiful glass-wear. Great for a romantic dinner or chilled drinks with friends on a Friday night, food is divine with an extensive wine/ champagne list, they do a 3-course set meal with a bottle of wine which is just excellent value for money (approx. $700 for 2!!). Really lovely... More

The Interior is superb, staff are passionate about their food and wines, they are very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. excellent small private dining area at the rear of the restaurant as well. They do an excellent mid-week set dinner that changes... More

I have been to Jaa Kitchen now on several occasions and never been disappointed. the manager, Ian, and the head waiter...possibly only waiter, Xavier, are beyond compare. They make you feel as though you are in some private home and you are their only guests even when the house is packed with customers. The menu offers some of my old... More

Possibly had a lot of hopes from the place reading all the reviews here, and that's possibly why this doesn't cut excellent for me. Had the chorizo and shrimps, which tasted great but chorizo was I thought a bit old and tough. For main course had the wagyu burger which tasted nice, but nothing special. My wife had the veggie...

One of our favourite dining venues in a city that offers so much dining choice. Since discovering this small treasure a few months ago, we have returned several times to discover what we didn't cover on the menu the last visit. The service is very personal, with all staff fully knowledgeable about the menu, and happy to make suggestions and... More

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.
