    There’s an endless list of quality Cantonese restaurants in Hong Kong and few of them will break the bank, Tsui Hang Village gets the nod because of its friendliness to first time visitors. Cantonese cuisine restaurants in Hong Kong can be somewhat overwhelming, usually a chaotic clatter of dishes, chopsticks and Cantonese. Tsui Hang Village is all of those things, in fact, with seats for 400, Dim Sum lunches can look like a riot, but the staff are adept at both getting you too your seat and walking you through the selection. The menu is an encyclopaedic choice of Cantonese classics, from snack sized Dim Sum to the more controversial Shark Fin soup. Price – HK$180

    Best Western Food - Al's Diner

    Al's is a little slice of Americana in Hong Kong. Modeled​ on a 50’s diner, the place is stuffed with props stolen from the set of Happy Days, including jukeboxes, neon signs and records stapled to the wall. The food is about as fancy as the setting, with a selection of stick to the rib standards, like burgers and ribs, all washed down by bucket sized milkshakes. Steer clear of Al’s during weekends, when it tends to turn into an all drinking, all dancing bar for homesick expats.​ Price – HK$150

    Best Indian Food - Bombay Dreams

    A far cry from some of the dark and dingy dives in Chungking or Miramar Mansions, Bombay Dreams is a bubbly and upbeat Indian with an upmarket appeal. The menu is the standard line-up of very tasty Indian curries and tandoori dishes, as well as a few more exotic Goan offerings, all superbly executed. Their weekend buffets are famous; both for the length of the table and for the length of the queues.​ ​Price – HK$230
