I took about 1 hour to find the place, I was just visiting Hong Kong so I didn't know what "Mid-Level" and "Soho" meant, but apparently it's up about 20 escalators and then you need to turn right. The google maps pin of this restaurant is completely wrong (good job management), and when I called the place and told them exactly where I was they told me to go "towards mid-level" and head down some street where I ended up in a quiet alley in the middle of nowhere. Albeit, Hong Kong has a bit of a maze of streets, but it would really help to have good directions and an accurate Google Maps pin.
I passed about 100 restaurants on my journey to this one (recommended as a good vegetarian place by a local), and I'm sure that every one of them would have been better value for money than this place. Maybe the rent is astronomical, but the portion sizes and the US$8 coffees were insulting. If you're going to charge that much, at least make something worth eating. The main course we had was some Arancini (deep fried rice cheese balls) called "Cheese bomb" or something. I used to work in a restaurant that gave these out for free as an amuse bouche, how can it possibly be a main? The coffee was almost undrinkable, I forced mine down because I had paid so much for it, but my mum couldn't do it. Most expensive americano (burnt coffee with a dash of soy) I've ever paid for, especially when we asked for lattes.
The only save for this restaurant was the service. The staff were lovely, and even though they aren't good at directions they served us quite well. Hopefully they will find a great place to work when this place shuts down (hopefully soon).
Please think hard before you go in here, don't be fooled by the wonderful mood lighting, atmosphere and smiles from the staff. You can cook better food in the microwave, and I'm sure for US$50 per person you could probably fill your stomach somewhere else!
