Have been meaning to try this place as have passed by it a couple of times but didn't find an obvious entrance and because of the "Super Monday" promo, thought to purposely give it a try. The prices are on the lower end of fine dining which is good as it is affordable. The food range is better than Tom's... More

I visited the Pawn (The Kitchen) in March for a tasting menu by Tom Aikens. This is the second dinner I've had that's hosted by Mr. Aikens. It was very different from the first and equally as good. We actually dined in the "The Kitchen" 2/F, and were served from a set menu with a wine pairing. The food was... More

Pawn is rather happening, as it impresses with its chic decor and buzz. We did not dine, just had a round of drinks. Must say the cocktails are interesting botanical concoctions with alluring catchy names. Great place for a night cap.

Surroundings and food lovely. Will go back.

A group of us met up in The Pawn Bar after the first day of the Hong Kong 7s. The bar was buzzing and had a great atmosphere. We hadn't booked, however the staff were really obliging and quickly got us seated. The upstairs restaurant was fully booked but we had much needed and delicious food served in the bar... More

The pork was delicious, as was the beef filet steak. The terrasse in downtown Hong Kong (Wan Chai) is charming, the decoration of the restaurant is artsy. Great experience altogether, I'd definitely recommend it.

The set lunch has very limited choices, only veal or fish burger for main course. The fish burger & fries don't worth the price....

As a first time traveler to HK, I stopped here for a few drinks and something to eat. I was impressed with the skill of the bar tenders as they made many wonderful cocktails.

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.
