The food is awesome! Even though the service could be a little friendlier and attentive sometimes I still give the place 5 points because of the food and ambiance. The sweet charcoal dumplings are a must try!

You know it's a popular restaurant when it is 95% full on a weekday night. Their menu is literally the most interesting I have seen in a long time, which renders decision-making extremely difficult; you just end up hoping that you have 10 more stomachs!...More

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

The concept of Social Place aims to provide diners a chic, vibrant yet casual dining environment for the energetic Central neighborhood. Using fresh ingredients, rice bran oil and no addition of MSG, our chefs aim to serve nutritious, yummy Chinese food with a twist. The interior decor reflects a bright and refreshing atmosphere - with the blue pastel wall and light almond color furniture, the large ceiling-to-floor- windows bring in natural sunlight as diners can enjoy delicious Chinese dim-sum and dishes pair with wine or locally brewed beer.
