Reviewed February 16, 2013

Far away from serving spanish tapas...maybe asian fusion the quality is average but ok for what you pay...limited choice, the service it's just ok...over all experience it's a ok place for a quick bite last minute with some friend and beer....

“One of best known Tapas in Hong Kong”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Located on the famous escalator on Shelly street, Soho, this Tapas joint is always busy, busy, busy. One of the main complements to the food is the fact that ex pats come back here time and again.
Ask for the chicken perri perri. It is not on the menu but it is a favorite if you know about it!
Also recommend the prawns and the beef but definatly try the duck rolls.

“Great Value, superb quality tapas and good atmosphere”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We were recommended to this restaurant by locals. It's a really popular ex pat tapas destination after work so do book if you want to eat. The Tapas selection is stunning and you will not be disappointed by the taste. It was so good we went twice in our 6 day trip. The view of the Central escalator is a little unexpected but that aside this is a great place to go. Good food , great atmosphere and very reasonably priced.

“Tasty tapas”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Every dish is very tasty. Noodle balls a fun option. All tapas good, never had a bad one!
Quick service. Meals small so you can order quite a few and taste lots of tapas.
