Of the scores of restaurants in Wan Chai catering to various tastes and pockets, we've sampled the following in the past 12 months. Click on the headlines to open our reviews. 

Zither Restaurant - new Chiu Chow fare a winner

The oyster omelette was excellent, with sweet, plump and soft oysters that were larger than usual

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quest by Que - Vietnamese fine dining

The price tag ... means that it's more of a special-occasion place, but it's definitely not stuffy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Italian restaurant Pirata - casual and comfortable

Most of the pasta dishes (other than the one we ordered) are available in full- or half-portions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New-look Pawn wins with starters

Warm poached prawns with vanilla olive oil and coriander yogurt was beautiful. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tasty Kitchen - good Chiu Chow, great service

Steamed dried abalone with minced pork meat was a nice, modern presentation of gee yuk beng

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sijie Sichuan Restaurant

 

Poached fish in hot chilli oil looked intimidatingly spicy but the warm, oily broth was actually very well balanced

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Café Hunan - busy, but a tempting menu

 

Sizzling beef with cumin flavour was also very good, with tender meat and well-balanced spices

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Isoya - Japanese vegetarian

 

Vegetarian sushi — with ingredients such as eggplant, red pepper and mashed pumpkin in place of fish and sea urchin — was whimsical

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nasubi  - Japanese

 

Yuba with dashi gelee was an excellent starter. It was cool and delicious
