Oh my word the goats cheese samosas are wonderful, we had the lunch menu and the food was really good. The serving staff were friendly and helpful. There was a good choice of wine and beer.

Lovely dinner with tapas. We were four of us so ordered few small dishes and the portions were very decent size so with 7 dishes we almost had too much. Delicious food, lovely atmosphere and very attentive service. Will definitely come back.

Cicada does some of the tastier Chinese dishes we have had in Hong Kong. We've tried quite a few of their dishes and loved each one.

Very good Asian style tapas place. The sweet and sour chicken and BBQ pork ribs did have an MSG flavor to them, but other items were wonderful. The restaurant also has some of the cheapest happy hour drinks in SOHO.

3 hours after landing in Hong Kong we ventured forth in search of food. There is a lot of amazing grub available. We were keen to have Asian rather than patronise the various Italian, Greek, Argentinian etc establishments. And we happened across this place. It...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
