“Convenient for those who want to stay at Royal Park Hotel”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

I stayed at Royal Park Hotel Sha Tin. It is very convenient for me to shop at New Town Plaza just across the road. The shopping mall is very big which offers full range of services from clothing to food, electronic to sporting goods etc. There is a good food court. If you want to look for better food, there are plenty of restaurants on 6th and 7th floors phase three of the shopping mall. Phase one mall and phase three mall are connected via the third floor, so when are moving around, please bear in mind that you have to get to the third floor in order to cross over to the next phase of the large shopping mall. I like the Viet Restaurant called Danang. Recommended. Very good authentic Vietnamese food at reasonable price.

Only really visited the newer part of the Shopping Centre which was really upmarket and full of designer clothes, shoes and handbags. Fine if you like shopping for designer stuff.

“Busy but good shopping mall in Sha Tin”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

The New Town Plaza in Sha Tin the third largest shopping mall in Hong Kong with over 2 million square feet of total store space, spread out of three phases. It is also recognized as one of the busiest shopping locations in Hong Kong. Weekdays are not so bad here but man it gets crowded here on weekends.

In recent years, New Town Plaza has been upgrading its shop roster in the Phase I area to keep pace with the expansion and improvements in other shopping malls and centers throughout the city. Now the bottom two floors seem to be entirely international brand name shops, even the likes of Starbucks and UCC have been kicked out or kicked up to higher floors to make room for higher end outfits like Agnes B Café. More and more, New Town Plaza is beginning to resemble a busier version of Festival Walk in Kowloon Tong.

Good Chinese dining is available at New Town Plaza and some decent but not great western cuisines can be found as well. A very nice international supermarket, called City Super, is located here as is a decent Snoopy World play area for children and a minor cinema.

Overall, a bit busier than we like when it comes to shopping experiences. However, we have been impressed by the steady upgrade of shops over the years at New Town Plaza. It’s the best shopping option north of Kowloon Tong where the Festival Walk shopping mall is located. New Town Plaza is accessible via the Sha Tin MTR station and the large bus terminus just below the shopping centre.
