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.

I had a set Veg Lunch here and it was well served and great to taste, my friends also enjoyed the non veg spread. For HKD 75, its a great deal.

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

Great, tasty food and slightly different from Sydney's middle eastern cruising. Pumpkin, sweet potato and feta salad followed by marinated sea bass and a chicken dish marinated in pomegranate sauce were delicious. All that with a couple of drinks each, for $HK550. Not cheap but certainly high quality with prompt, efficient and friendly service
