Nice food

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...

we had several dishes from vegetarian spring rolls to chicken, ginger infused rice, stir fry with tofu, a beef dish, and side order of pad-Thai. All good size to share and well flavored, they have side spices you can ask for too like soy with chili peppers. The location is on an adorable side street in a bustling area of... More

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

Been is Asia 25 years, first time ever to write a review but feel compelled to share my experience. Food was so bland, 3 of the 4 dishes we ordered came from the same pot - extra cream, large chunks of tasteless chicken, no spice, no flavor - chef has to be ashamed of the effort - must have been...

... right on Soho mid-level escalators spot. Very nice and calm atmosphere with a charming dining room in the back of the restaurant. Somehow pricey but not more that any other restaurant of this quality and in this area from Hong-Kong Island.

The staff here are attentive well spoken and genuinely nice. However, when the food is this poor it counts for very little. Average food is average food. The menu whilst wide ranging lacks any identity. Fusion food it may be but very poor at that. The place, the food. Very tired. Eat elsewhere to avoid disappointment

Placed in a very good position it is an average restaurant talking about food quality. If you want to eat different go there. Very nice that you can enter this place but at the same moment be outside. Check it out!

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.
