We were a group of eight, we ordered a variety of dishes from the menu. The food was good, the flavour was good, the sauces that accompanied were full of flavour. The portion on the other hand for the price, in my opinion isn't justified. The potatoes you have to dust of the salt, if not its too salty. The... More

We were walking around mid levels area and checking out menus. The menu of Cicada appealed to all of us. Busy but we only waited about 5 minutes for a table. Ordered 6 items off the menu and all were very good. Fun and busy. We'd go again.

Visited twice October 2016. The set lunch is very reasonable and very good. Happy hour prices in the afternoon are also very reasonable. The prices for the tapas in the evening appeared to be quite expensive, by comparison. Perhaps this is to be expected in Hong Kong. Service excellent.

We were in Hong Kong for a stopover with nothing plan as to where to eat, and walked into Cicada based on menu options and lunch specials. We were blown away by the quality of the food! Portions were ample, more than expected for "sharing plates". We had rich curry &roti, pumpkin, lentil and spinach curry with jasmine rice and... More

We had planned to eat at a more well known place in Soho but that had a wait of an hour or more. Which was lucky or we wouldn't have found Cicada. Amazing food, lots of small plates, great combo of Asian with plenty of spicy dishes. Affordable cocktails, that doesn't mean nasty, it means good and you can afford... More

We visited this restaurant on Oct 27, 2016, after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. It is run by the Enotica group, which includes Enoteca, the Parish, Iberico & Co, and the Phoenix. It was relocated from Shelly St next to the escalator, and is now next door to Enoteca, which makes it extremely convenient as you can order from menus... More

We used to love this restaurant when it was on the Escalator and it was a pleasure to see it reopened on Elgin. We have used it twice in the passed couple of weeks for lunch using set menu. There is always a good and varied choice of dishes and the price includes unlimited fruit tea which is very refreshing.... More

We took 5 dishes for two; vegetable rolls, tuna, duck dumplings, tofu cakes and fresh mango sushi with caramel dip. It was amazing! Each better than before! And dessert crowned our meal! Really friendly place with reasonable prices. I really can recommend this place! 5 dishes and two beers; 551 HKD

The food here was just mouth watering. Glad I came here with my family so we had the excuse to order lots, try a little each and then order more of what we liked or try something new. Not disappointed by any of the dishes and the cocktail list is great and reasonably priced. Just be careful how many dishes... More

Love this new addition to restaurants on Elgin Street. It has a cool street food vibe and much attention was paid to the interior. We had a few very good dishes (Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Veggie Dumplings) and some were just ok (crab cakes) but surely that is put to the individual tastebuds. The portions were bigger than expected. Service... More
