Featuring the latest hotspots and some old favourites, here’s a roundup of the best restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong.

Lan Kwai Fong, best known for its wealth of buzzing nightclubs and bars, is also home to many of Hong Kong’s hottest dining destinations.

Get your steakhouse fix at Porterhouse, located in Lan Kwai Fong’s stylish California Tower. The menu boasts prime cuts of meat rarely found in Hong Kong and decadent seafood platters that are sure to impress.

The outdoor terrace, complete with sweeping views across the city, is always a great spot to start a night out.

2. Casa Lisboa

Casa Lisboa is a welcoming haven of calm, serving the city’s best Portuguese fare. The authentic menu and decor both stay true to Portuguese tradition, while the staff is consistently friendly and ready to help customers navigate the mouth-watering menu. The suckling pig is always a hit, and the unparalleled selection of Portuguese wines beautifully complements the flavours. Visit Casa Lisboa for a relaxed evening, hearty fare and a little slice of southern Europe in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong.

3. Luk Yu Tong

Restaurant, Dim Sum

Luk Yu Tong’s decor is a fusion of Lingnan and Colonialist styles and retains its charm from the 1930s when it first opened. This cha chaan teng(teahouse) sells dim sum that is hard to find in other teahouses, like the honey egg bomb or the stuffed fish maw. Other notable favourites include the stir-fried noodles with sliced beef and fried prawns on toast. Dishes are presented like artworks, and the ingredients are top-notch. This place is packed from morning through lunch, but if you come after 2pm, you may be able to hustle a table without having to wait too long.

4. Braza Churrascaria

Restaurant, Brazilian

Braza Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse has brought succulent rodizio-style meat to a new audience in Hong Kong. Rodizio is an all-you-can-eat style of restaurant service commonly found in Brazil. Arrive with an empty stomach, and watch in wonder as generous tender cuts of beef are brought to your table and carved in front of you. It’s not just steak that’s on offer though – pork, chicken, seafood and a full salad bar with cured cold cuts, smoked salmon, fresh veggies and other sides are at your disposal. Once you’re full, let a member of the waitstaff know; otherwise, they will simply keep bringing you delicious things to try! Not ideal for small appetites or vegetarians, Braza Churrascaria is a popular choice for groups dining out in Lan Kwai Fong thanks to its impeccable quality and affordable price.

5. Tokio Joe

Restaurant, Japanese

Tokio Joe is known as the original Japanese restaurant in Lan Kwai Fong, due to its long-standing presence on the neighbourhood’s lively and ever-changing bar and restaurant scene. Despite its near legendary status, this intimate dining spot has kept its welcoming ambience and consistently delivers a delicious menu of modern Japanese cuisine. Sushi rolls, grilled fish and sashimi salads are always top choices, washed down with a bottle from the restaurant’s excellent sake selection.
