One of my regulars

I love the Honey Chicken in Lime Sauce and the Chicken in Coconut milk and lemongrass soup here. The fried rice is a bit oily in my opinion and is better at other joints in my opinion. I developed a shell fish allergy here once immediately after eating the king prawn main course.

Soho Spice is a Thai-Vietnamese cuisine place located in Elgin Street. Elgin Street being one of the best restaurant street in Hong Kong. Unfortunately the food is not fresh and I & my friends got sick after non fresh food twice in a row. I had a shrimp in the Pad Thai that was obviously not good (I could spot... More

I took the noodle menu which for a price of 75 HDK was pretty cheap. Salami pork salad with green mango and fresh herbs as fies plate, and fried wet ho fun noodles with pork and thai asparagus for second. The salad had old and bad leaves and the mango per pieces was not well pealed. The general taste was... More

I was rather disappointed by this restaurant. I had the chicken satay which had a rather weak peanut sauce with it that wasn't thick enough. The lamb with red curry just wasn't spicy enough and the lamb was rather fatty. A good ambience to the restaurant but the food could be a lot better.

We came here on a Monday, super Monday, and took advantage of the 2 for the price of 1 for main course. Lovely Tai and Vietnamese food. Good atmosphere. Maybe a bit to cramped and to busy.

Service was very good, friendly & efficient with starters arriving very quickly. Nice ambience. Given 'Spice' is in the name, I was surprised to find the food hardlyspicy at all - in fact it was sweetness that was the defining feature, and a rather overpowering one at that. Food went down easily but was not outstanding.

A little key in the wall type restaurant, where we had a nice lunch. We sat out the back in the outdoor area, which looks up through the middle of all the surrounding high rise. Staff were great & the food fresh. Worth a try

First of all the Restaurant is on a very cool neighbourhood in HK. Very trendy decor. I Never tried vietnamese food,so it was my first time. We tried the chinese beer and the vietnamese, witch was more like a Lager. The food was awesome, i had some springrolls, chicken sate, squid tempura, and some main dishes and all was delicious...

Soho Spice advertises itself as a Thai-Vietnamese restaurant. Well we certainly tasted the Thai in the dishes but the Vietnamese flavors are quite lacking. Overall, we had no complaints about the food but the chef should consider toning the sweetness down by a notch. Southeast Asian cusine is supposed to be savory, not saccharine. The food served here have clearly... 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.
