Very tranquil atmosphere and a great break from the crowds and the city. Conveniently located steps from the MRT station. Who needs to visit Japanese temples and gardens when great examples of it is found right in Hong Kong?

No, it only opens for lunch and dinner everyday. For the 1st and 15th day of Chinese lunar calendar, it will be very crowded and unlikely to get a table. Pre booking will be helpful.
