A few floors above the cinema at Langham Place, Zero is the perfect pre- or post-movie meal venue. Menu items are aimed at the young at heart with fun “build your own pizza”, which also includes a dessert pizza. Named after the executive chef, Zero Yu, the restaurant also serves a few salads and starters. We went for the assorted starter platter (HK$198), including Turkish bread, meatball skewers, Iberico ham croquette, chicken wings, okra fries and squid.

It was enough for two. Our favourite was the croquette and squid, which were deep-fried. The meatballs were glazed in teriyaki which, although fairly rich in flavour, we liked. We also ordered chicken wings with jalapeno honey glaze (HK$78).

Although we enjoyed them, there was too much going on with the sweetness from the honey, spiciness from the jalapeno and crunchiness from corn flakes. They really did not need the smoky flavour competing with everything else.

For mains, we tried the BBQ pork ribs with sesame accompanied by crispy Cajun fries (HK$208), which were good, and we built our own pizza. For a 10.5-inch base with a choice of sauce, cheese and herbs, it cost HK$98. Any toppings are extra. Choosing from an array of toppings, we went for a meat lovers-style with sausage, pepperoni and Parma ham - the items range from HK$15 to HK$22 per topping. We didn’t go for the dessert pizza, but an ice cream mix and match {HK$78) for two scoops, one sauce and three toppings. We had cookies and cream ice cream with chocolate sauce, chocolate chips, M&Ms and honey comb. It was indulgent but lots of fun.
