A nice setting in Hong Kong Park. The venue is in an attractive place that welcomes you on a warm evening. The food was ok but nothing exciting - more like food from a chinese takeaway. One of the dishes was overrly salty. The service was very intermittent. There would be a burst of activity and them seemingly staff would... More

It's a rather romantic setting in the middle of Hong Kong Park. The staff are pleasant. The food is delicious. It would be great for Valentine's Day. Must mention - There's also the happy hours till 9pm and quite a good choice of draft beer.

We tried this place out because it looked classy, and it was a beautiful evening and we wanted to dine in an outdoor setting. We went with a set dinner which included some finger apps, light soup, meat entree, veg side and noodle dish. We're not culinary snobs by any stretch, but the entire meal was underwhelming. The dishes came... More

Visited L16 for many times and it never disappoints me. The reason why I always come back to L16 is because they are not only serving Thai food but also Japanese and Sichuan dishes. With that excellent quality in variety of food at all in one place is difficult to manage for a restaurant, however they still managed to delight... More

We ate here after getting married at the adjacent wedding registry. The finger food was good (lots of sushi and spring rolls) and the atmosphere is lovely in the park, but the service could've been quicker. We had prepaid for freeflow wine and beer, but the staff were very slow to offer refills, so I spent quite a bit of... More

This is the only restaurant in Hong Kong park. The park is small, and there are plenty of dining options in the nearby mall (Pacific Place). L16 has a big outdoor seating area and on a pleasant day it is lovely, although the area is somewhat enclosed so you are not able to see the pretty park. Service is very... More

The restaurant being located conveniently in the middle of Hong Kong Park makes a pretty good first impression. However the waiting times are simply unacceptable! Waited for 15 minutes until an unfriendly waitress took an order, after which waited for another half an hour for the meal to be served (despite the place looking half empty). If you're hungry, go...

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
