Step back in time, where baked Alaska runs wild. Where chicken Kiev rubs shoulders with beef stroganoff. Good old-fashioned service with a smile. Loved it. Only the Angel Delight is missing.

Classic vintage expat cuisine. I've been there many times over the last 15 years. Consistently good with great service. It's a perfect place for a business lunch.

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
