Really enjoyed my meal here, but making a reservation to go back, found it has been shut and a Butchers Club burger restaurant will take it's place. Shame.

I found the dishes nicely balanced and pretty authentic. Service wasn't perfect, but better than most of the reviews here would imply. The place is nicely decorated and they have a full bar. Most seating is at small tables.

Place was empty yet still had to wait to receive menus or drinks for 10 minutes until got out of our seats to find someone. Food came quickly but was all very bland.. No taste which we could deal with until finding plastic in the salad. The waitress took away all of our dishes without acknowledging anything until manager came... More

The restaurant has a good middle eastern ambience. Food was good and the service as expected. The portions are good for sharing with someone else especially if you are not a big eater. Good menu selection and certainly worth a revisit.

Habibi is a bit of an institution in Hong Kong - some people love it, others walk on by and never venture in, and some try it just the once. We tried it the once. The decor is very strong Turkish-Bollywood influenced and rich in history. The hospitality of the staff is warm and friendly. The pricing is reasonable. The... More

I love Moroccan food and the menu looked like the same fare. Although the restaurant is listed as Lebanese, my server actually told me it was Egyptian but no matter, the food was great. I had some of the appetizers along with some lamb and every bite was fabulous. Service was not very attentive but I mostly came for the... More

Order it online after reading the reviews and got sent cold hard pita breads and taste less hummus and babaganoush. I wonder whether people have had real authentic babaganoush as their reviews are misleading . Disappointed

This place is next to the hotel we stayed in so fantastic location. We had the set lunch which is amazing value and includes a drink. Service is good too. It is only a casual place but perfect if you want a quick bite to eat and rest your feet in between exploring the city

We wanted some middle Eastern food so we walked in. It's right under the mid level escalators ( bottom section) . The restaurant is small like many Hong Kong restaurants. We got a couple's seat in the center and it was beautiful. The whole place is cute. The service is great. The waiters are either owners or managers and they're... 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.
