The 10 best Kowloon Restaurants - A Foodie's Guide

Hong Kong is the culinary capital of Asia and has restaurants ranging from local to internationally renowned ones. Here are 10 places you must visit for a delectable experience.


Spring Deer

This is a local restaurant, which was established in 1970, that dishes out some classic Cantonese food, like the Peking Duck which is the best in the city. The interior hasn't changed much since its opening but it makes the place more authentic. The prices are slightly above average but worth it. It is recommended to make a reservation.


Tin Lung Heen

Located at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, this restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars for its exemplary food and flavours. Of course, this means it is quite a pricey affair. But, it is not always you get to enjoy some excellent dumplings perched 102 floors above the ground while soaking up the panoramic view of the well-lit city below! It is a great place to celebrate a special occasion or a romantic dinner.


Tim Ho Wan

This is the original branch of the popular dim sum institution among many restaurants in Kowloon Hong Kong. It is famous for being the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant which is why almost everyone goes here. You might have to wait around for about an hour if it is too crowded and due to the demand, they do not undertake reservations. The restaurant serves more than 30 types of dim sums which are all listed in a piece of paper. Tick what you want and hand it over when you order.



This is a fusion restaurant situated in Dorsett Mongkok Hong Kong and is well known to serve fusion hotpots. They have a variety of sea-food; some locally sourced and some imported to ensure the ingredients are of the highest quality. It certainly is an experience! If you are a guest who chooses to stay at the hotel, you are entitled to a 30% discount on the menu.


Above and Beyond

Yet another fine dining restaurant that is dedicated to serving innovative Cantonese cuisine. The food is exceptionally great and the ambience is the added factor that truly takes this place above and beyond by giving the customers a breath-taking view of the city.


Temple Spice Crabs

This is a local, open-air restaurant located at the popular temple street and serves street food. The prices are slightly overpriced compared to other local restaurants. However, the seafood is always fresh and the staff is able to converse in English, making it a convenient choice.


Felix at Peninsula Hotel

The experience here certainly is an expensive affair, but the incredible view paired with innovative French-influenced dishes that is made by the famous Japanese Chef, Yoshihara Kaji, is a priceless combination. The menu changes according to the seasonal availabilities of the ingredients.



This is a café that is popular among the millennials for their fancy drinks and food that is popular on social media. Try their various flavoured teas and chicken wings that are famous.


The Café

This is well-known for their breakfast buffet which consists of a variety of both Chinese and Western food. It is vegetarian-friendly and the staff are exceptionally attentive and polite.


Nanhai No.1 Restaurant

Perched on the 30th floor, this isn't the highest rooftop restaurant in Kowloon, but it does give a great view of the towering skyscrapers around. They serve Cantonese food and a table with the best views would require a minimum bill of HK$500.
