good meal enjoyed by both of us

When we visited this small thai/vietnamese restaurant for late lunch it was very busy, we chose from the lunch special, we both enjoyed both our starters and mains delivered with good service and reasonable prices

Sorry to say but this Thai restaurant didn't quite do it for us. The menu seemed to miss certain traditional Thai dishes and when served seemed to miss the mark, either not enough kick to it or the soups being too creamy . The service on the other hand was very good and friendly.the manager especially. Maybe it was an... More

Want to have something Asian but not Chinese? Their menu is a mix of Thai, Vietnamese and Indian. They have quite a few choices but the taste and ingredients are not exactly authentic. Nevertheless, it's not a bad choice for gathering with friends and families.

This restaurant is along time favorite of me in Hong Kong. Always packed but the quality is always high. The price is quite ok but the food is just delicious!

We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst searching for a different one, but were not disappointed. We chose main and desert courses. My wife does not eat meat, but that is usually not an issue with vietnamise food. Our main courses were: king prawn in a lime chilli sauce; and, chicken in lime and curried coconut sauce. Both were excellent. There... More

Not particularly bad,but not particularly good either. It really depends on what you are looking for. The food is really cooked for western taste and is far from being an authentic representation of South East Asian food. There really are many better options to try either Cafe Siam or Chachawan as suggestions. I wouldn't do a return visit

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 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.

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.
