“Festival Walk branch - Nice option for a bit higher quality lunch.”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Had lunch at the Hibitu Cafe at Festival Walk in the Kowloon Tong area recently and quite enjoyed my meal here. While pricey for this area of Hong Kong, I did quite enjoy the quiet environment and nicely prepared food and drink.

During this lunch, I had the Salami and Mixed Bell Pepper Pizza (Hk$108). My pizza was lightly marinated, included very nice salami and tasty cheese, topped off with some nice roquette leaves and served on a crispy, wafer-thin crust. While pricey for the serving size, the pizza was very good, better than expected (rating 4.25 of 5). Also enjoyed a large Longu (long black) coffee (HK$35) that tasted very nice after the pizza (rating 3.75 of 5). This rounded off a light and enjoyable lunch this time around at Cafe Habitu, one I'd be glad to repeat.

Overall, Cafe Habitu is on the pricier side when it comes to lunch. However, the food quality is generally better than nearby restaurants serving standard lunch sets. Also, we've found this particular Habitu restaurant to be quieter and more relaxing than other restaurants in Festival Walk. This makes it a good option at Festival Walk when you want a bit nicer lunch.

“Pay for your souce!”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

I had lunch at one of the group's outlets in a shopping mall known as "Festival Walk Mall" in Kowloon. I order a Mexican dish "Chicken Quesadillas" and a glass of red wine to go with it. This dish is supposed to go with salsa, guacamole and sour cream to begin with, but the sauces came out along with the dish was just enough for one slice of quesadillas. When I ask for more salsa sauce (not even the guacamole and sour cream), I am told to pay $8 if I wanted it! It is just incredible for a up market restaurant like Habitu to charge sauces for a dish price at $78! They should alert clients by stating this policy on the menu and not asking for addition charge when customer is half way through the meal!
