All the restaurants that you find in Central have been tested by time and only the very best of the best restaurants can survive the excruciating rent and the most skeptical and discerning Hong Kong eaters. Central is the land of bankers, English speaking expats and those who have never left Hong Kong Island but it doesn't mean that the top restaurants in Central are all about fine dining.
Lan Fong Yuen is probably one of last remaining dai pai dong style restaurants in Hong Kong that have won the hearts and minds of Hong Kong with the best french toast and Hong Kong style milk tea as well as Chicken steak with instant ramen.
Ser Wong Fun is on the corner of Wellington Street, Stanley Street and Cochrane Street and serves snake broth, which is considered one of the best tonic soups in this part of China. Their signature Snake soup doesn't smell or taste or look as morbid as it sounds at all, in fact its takes over 5 hours to make every single day and its this persistence that has kept Ser Wong Fun a Central staple restaurant.
Hunan Garden is a old name in Central for Hunan cuisine, the restaurant serves unbelievably good Hunan dishes such as Fried shrimps with chill pepper corns and Kung Pao chicken. The interior decor is lavishly Chinese and it can be a cultural experience just to visit.
Lumiere is mainly Sichuan but also Southern American?! As to how this Central restaurant makes these two cuisines blend together for a fusion is for your to find out. Recommended dishes include the Boiled prawns, Peruvian seafood soup as deep fried prawns.
Isola had to be a local pick Central restaurant for this is a glass box with an outdoor terrace and a fantastic view. The minimalistic furnishing allows Central and Victoria harbour act as an ever changing decor. Simple modern Italian food accompanies the attractive Central expat crowd.
Bistro Bamboo is one of the best Shanghainese Chinese restaurants in the Soho Central area that is literally located right underneath the mid levels escalator and makes it one of the best hidden gems in Central. This offbeat restaurant is not pretentious and the seats are sheer coziness. But it's the food that matters and the appetizers kick off superbly.
