I went there for celebrating my wedding anniversary with my wife. The atmosphere is great. The waitresses and waiters are kind and helpful.

Overall, a good experience. The food was ok. Nothing fantastic. Not great value for money. Now I know why we were able to get a reservation on the day (around 4pm for a 8pm reservation).

Cool, speakeasy type place on the second floor of an old reno'd building right on Johnson Road. Sat on the balcony and had a few Vodka and Tonic's and a light snack. Great vibe for a late afternoon drink before the evening descended.

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.

We did not use a lift. There was a long narrow staircase from the street level to the second floor. I must confess it was not well marked. The staircase faced Johnston Rd.
