Khana Khazana

Khana Khazana 1/F Dannies House 20 Luard Road Wan Chai Tel: 2520 5308

Vibe: While not deliberately retro, the dining has old-fashioned charm. Staff are attentive but not pushy. They are happy to explain the menu and offer suggestions. Who to bring: It's a good place for vegans and vegetarians.

Raffles' Tiffin does little to curry favour

THERE are meals that are the stuff of dreams and meals that should be. But when the two don't coincide, disappointment is inevitable.
