Types of Restaurants

Food and loving kindness

Healthy, inexpensive, mouth-watering dishes often seem to be unreachable treasures these days as food prices soar. Certainly, finding a nice, affordable place for lunch has been quite a headache for me.

Neat eating will stop wastage

When people are eating in restaurants, they often accidentally drop food onto the table.

Recreate the essence of French chic ... chez toi

Hongkongers' love affair with French cafes and restaurants seems inexhaustible.

And long-established haute cuisine establishments remain firm favourites among residents here.

Take a break to refuel in style

If you need to refill - or just stop for a few moments and recaffeinate - you have several choices at Horizon Plaza. Starting right at the top, TREE, on the 28th floor, has a bright, open-plan cafe that not only looks out over the sea but, through a long window, into the furniture boutique's busy carpentry workshop.
