Tsim Sha Tsui might be synonymous with noisy tourists and big brand shopping, but you'll also find some of the hippest, hottest restaurants in this part of town. A chameleon, SPOON by Alain Ducasse is a subtle French restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui where the presence of France gives the restaurant a casual-chic atmosphere. The usual sobriety and formal aspects of fine dining are eliminated, yet the refinement of the cuisine is ever present.
Felix on the 28/F of the Peninsula is a suspension in reality with a stunning Hong Kong skyline as the backdrop. What else would you expect from Philippe Starck? Enjoy your champagne, elegant cocktails and contemporary cuisine although the view alone urges a visit. The crowd includes models, promoters, tourists but beware the drinks come with a five star price tag and you must dress up.
Chesa is all about the bijou and romantic Alpine chalet home from home. This Tsim Sha Tsui hidden gem is a restaurant where welcoming and cosy meets affordable and authentic Swiss food and global wines.
At Golden Island Bird's Nest Chiu Chao Restaurant, the insides are a rich wash of Golden drapes and bling complimenting the Victoria Harbour night views. The Bird's Nest is double boiled in coconut milk and is one of the most expensive tonic soups in Shiu Show cuisine. Shark's fin soup is one of the signature dishes and this Tsim Sha Tsui restaurant stands testimony to the quality food its been serving for 10 plus years.
Nobu at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront is not the snobbishness that people may expect from a three star Michelin fine dining restaurant. Mother Nature lies sleeping here, the restaurant was created from an 18 ft Ficus tree trunk and seems to float on the ripple patterned terrazzo floor. Nobu is elegant and sleek with the twinkling lights of the Hong Kong skyline.
Sabatini is all about old school Italian charm, with its amiable and well trained staff, retro tableside service and endearing live band. The homey appeal makes for a greatest Italian dining experience in Tsim Sha Tsui, and the sweet treats filled dessert trolley should help that cause.
Han Sung Korean Restaurant on Kimberley Street in Tsim Sha Tsui is probably one of the most authentic Korean eateries in Hong Kong serving those distinctive Korean flavours that come with all the Korean side dishes such as fiery kim chi. Kimberley street is the little Korea of Hong Kong and if anywhere to open a Korean restaurant in Hong Kong it has to be Kimberley Street. The Kalbi beef rice is really tasty, succulent and juicy marinated in a sweet sauce.
The xiaolongbao at Din Tai Fung are arguably the most delectable soup-filled pork dumplings in the world. With delicately fine skin and succulent, juicy meat. The flavourful Taiwanese pork chop, pleasing Zhejiang style zongzi sticky rice dumplings and the spicy Sichuan wontons in a rich, peaty sauce of smoked chili makes this one of the most sought out restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Enjoy a lunch buffet at the Mira buffet restaurant Yamm because they have the best buffets in Tsim Sha Tsui. Do remember to grab a scope of Mövenpick ice-cream after patting your belly after enjoying one of the most scrumptious signature fusion buffets in Hong Kong.
Gaylord's is one long-standing Indian restaurant and their cheerful staff have been serving classy Indian cuisine to TST for years. The creamy daal and the butter chicken is to die for. The other highlight is their Indian band with the tabla beats and the droning sitar, performing live every night.
