the saga beef is excellent, melts in your mouth. lunch set met at 3000-5000 ish, is probably the best value for money ever. while they do not accept reservation, the queue is orderly and reasonable. we waited about 15min, arriving at 1pm on a weekday.

Quite famous among the HK visitors. Recommended by a tourist book. Came just in time before it stopped order for lunch. The mandarin speaking waiter was helpful and recommended us sets which tasted well and very good value for money.
