What to eat for lunch is one of the most important questions of the day. And with Hong Kong’s ever-changing landscape of restaurants, the huge selection we have is both a blessing and a curse. We try to make that selection a little easier for you with a roundup of some of our favourite spots in Central for every occasion.
Best for Business Lunch
Hong Kongers are known to be some of the hardest working people in the world. This is none more evident than during the mad dash at lunch time for a quick bite or a takeaway meal to eat at the desk. One of the few times we’re able to slow down for a delicious meal is for business lunches. Impress your clients with any of these choices!

Best for Lunch with Colleagues
When not working from home, we spend more time with our workmates on a weekly basis than with family or friends! So its important to break bread with your colleagues from time to time. Whether it’s catching up with a good work friend after a period of WFH, a small team lunch, or a promotion celebration, these restaurants provide great food at reasonable prices!
