I visited Knockbox the last time I was staying in Mongkok. I found out about it through Sprudge coffee blog. The place is very tiny and kind of on a backstreet but if you can find the street the storefront makes it obvious where it is. The first time I visited was right after they'd opened at (if I recall)... More

All the pretentiousness of a London hipster coffee hole without the trendy staff and atmosphere. I'm sure the staff know lots about coffee but they're not too excited by it. They looked bored and when asked for a recommendation they balked. Check it out because its different, but don't expect anything special. If you don't sit at the bar your... More

Very impressive of my 1st visit to this shop, it provides an authentic feel of a cafe (eg. a simple decoration but comfortable) Their baristas are full of coffee knowledge, the shop provides wide range of coffee like drip coffee, specialty coffee from different countries. Having a seat at the bench would be perfect as you can definitely enjoy the... More

Really excellent coffees, served by fabulously skilled baristas who really want to share their knowledge and every step of the process. Store is very basic and suffers from the Lite Jazz plague, but the drinks are good enough to make up for the bad sax. I got to chat about what was on offer before I ordered, got to smell... More

When we discovered The Knockbox during our recent trip to Hong Kong, my husband and I made the journey to Mong Kok daily to sample some of their fabulous coffee and food. The service is excellent. The coffee out of this world. But if you want a quick coffee, there’s a Starbucks down the road. This is artisanal coffee at... More

We have enjoyed coffee in many cities around the world and really looked forward to Knockbox after reading the reviews. I would say that the coffee ranks as very good and better than three out of five stars. But, the two people making coffee had no personality. They stood behind the coffee bar precisely measuring and weighing each coffee order,... More

Best espresso we had on our trip (through China) uses only high grade beans, ethically sourced. Has small selection of pastries & sandwiches too. Also has coffee making skills classes. A cool oasis.

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy.

One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
