Reasonable price, yummy food - Citygate

Watami Citygate is a restaurant that I would go every time i visit Hong Kong. The choice of food is really a lot and most importantly, the price is rather reasonable. If you go with a group, you may even order Set meal. The place can be very crowded during peak hours. Service is normal.

As the name described, Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant, is really good for casual gathering with family and friends anytime (lunch or dinner). Last night I went to their restaurant - Grand Tower Shop to have dinner with my family, this was my first time to this shop, I liked this shop very much as the place was nice and not... More

Tucked away in Sun Arcade, this place looks small, but, opens out once inside. Both visits, we appeared to be the only non Locals here; which to us is usually a pretty good sign that the food is good. Reasonably priced, good quality Japanese food. Smart service, nice clean tables and booths. Firstly...love the Soy Beans....salty, fresh crisp and moreish... More

Been to this place many times. A mid range priced Japanese restaurant in a shopping mall basement, about 10 minute walk from MTR Tsim Sha Tsui station. The quality of food and atmosphere are OK for the price. Like many other restaurant (chains) the quality of food and service are gradually falling while price going up owing to ever rising... More

The wait staff was very lazy and placed all of our food and drinks at the head of the table and expected us to pass it down to the rest of the table. (We had a party of ten people but there was more than enough space for them to serve everything properly.) They did not complete our order so... More

Went to Watami as I hear good reviews about Japanese food in HKG. Price is pretty reasonable it comes at the expense of the food. I ordered a salmon chirashi (around hkg 60) and the salmon was really thin and very limited slices.. So I think this place is probably good for a quick and simple lunch.

Could not find the Man Yee Arcade branch, but same company in Hong Kong. It was our first morning in Hong Kong and we went out for a stroll, and came across this restaurant on the middle level of the arcade, there was a good queue so we thought this must be a good one to eat in. To my... More
