Description: Bubba Gump Shrimp Company is the first and only casual restaurant chained based on a motion picture. The vision was a casual family restaurant chain themed on Forrest Gump’s life, philosophy and love of shrimp. It was an instant success, just like the movie. It captures the charm and American spirit that made Forrest Gump a smash hit with down-home décor reminiscent of the movie’s setting in Alabama, showcasing memorabilia and photos from the movie, along with reproductions of script pages, storyboards and even some costumes. Bubba Gump is located at the highest point of Hong Kong, the Peak. With the panoramic view of the Victoria Harbor, we are perfect for any events from birthday's to corporate gatherings.

“Great view, good atmosphere and cool concept”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I love the movie and think the concept & theming is great. We had a 1/2hr to wait until we could head back down on the tram so decided to call in for a drink and a snack. My husband loved the Coronarita drink and bought the glass attachments to make them for our grown up sons. The food was pretty average but the view was spectacular and the staff very good. All on all a pretty good way to spend a 1/2 hr

“Amazing View - Get A Window Seat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We made a reservation via e-mail and they responded favourably very quickly. On the day, we were there earlier and the queue was very long. We were given a table promptly. Window seat with amazing night view. Food was served very fast, however it took a few reminders before they brought us cutleries. Food was good. Recommended for the great view.

“Typical American mass catering - but the view is good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Food was OK -- if you like the formula -- just don't expect a gastronomic treat. What they lost in subtlety they more than made up for in quantity though. The Mud Pie, for example, was obscenely large and could have easily feed 4 people with normal appetites.

Only went in because we were starving and refused to eat at the Chinese restaurant as it was serving shark fin.

“Typical American Concept”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

"You know what you get" Like other American concepts. Big, greasy, "have a nice day", and predictable. The view and the location was the best. On top of the Peak, with a stunning view made the visit to a great one. But honestly? Shrimps with fried potatoes and Coca Cola as a Meny choice?

Hubba would rotate.

“Food is great the concept is cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I only visited Bubba Gump in Hong Kong, the view is awesome, ask for a table near the window and you'll have a great view on Hong Kong from the Peak!!! The waiting time is terrible however, I was there twice and each time needed to wait about 40 on average. But the food and fun is worth it... Run Forrest RUN!!!
