The place is cozy and food is yum and delicious. Although the space is small but it is very clean and staffs are so happy to serve the people. I had fun spending my happy hours here while I was in Hongkong.

We ate here the first night of our visit. This place is worth a try, with good food and service. Just don't bother with the cocktails, they were far to sweet and bland. Go for a beer with the food and you're good!More

This place has a laid back atmosphere, happy hours was ok and tapas were good but nothing extraordinary. $80.00 US for 4 tapas and 4 drinks during happy hour. I guess is not too highly for Hong Kong. A happy hour menu would be helpful....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
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
