Good food but not sure about the hype

Much has been written of this restaurant and admittedly my expectations were high - as they should for a 3 star experience. The decor is best seen as industrial/food court inspired with bling for the dining area - which may well be by design but the functionality of the space and the myriad of... read more

We went to Bo Innovation for a special occasion and tried the Chef's Table Tasting Menu. It is a 15-course, well-designed feast that takes you through different aspects of Chinese as well as western cuisine. Though we heard so-so things about the restaurant before, after the meal I truly think Bo Innovation deserves its 3 Michelin star. My personal favorite... More

We had the chance to book a table for lunch. Great experience and excellent value. The service is top, as all the Hong Kong restaurants of this level. The food is really good and innovative as we would expect from a 3 star Michelin restaurant, but you should be aware that this is a Chinese restaurant so some of the... More

The medium degustation menu was pretty impressive, and the wine selection available was more than sufficient to fully complement the courses. The duration of the meal was a bit long, but i guess thats due to the rate at which we ate at. A good experience for us, would recommend to other friends.

Our lunch in this resto is a real experience. After watching Bo's show on TV and reading the reviews, we were so excited to try the Chef Menu. I love most dishes, the pigeon, beef with truffle cheong fun, umami are my favorites. One thing that can be improved from this dishes is the temperature, all dishes had room temperature.... More

We were very impressed with this restaurant. Three options of degustation menu - we had the medium sized one and they managed a food allergy very well. The menu was lengthy with many delectable bites of fantastic flavour. No course was predictable and every one was tasty and unique. The wine matches worked well. Highly recommended.

I Did not know that the restaurant was famous , and a Michelin starred Chef was operating there until a week after my meal there. This is similar to Heston Blumenthal but applied to ..Cantonese and Chinese dishes. Small tapas like portions . The pork bun came in a Chinese White spoon. Was more of a jelly despite looking like...

I was surprised to find such a small and "simple" restaurant on the second floor in a house in a small street i hong kong ... to have 3 michelin stars. But after the 15 - 20 course tasting meal I fully agree to the 3 stars! Although some dishes were not perfect, most was extraordinary well made and presented.... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
