We had a most enjoyable dinner at Chôm Chôm. We were seated at the bar which is great as you can see the chefs preparing the food. We let our waitress, a super charming (Swiss!) lady, do the food ordering for us and we were delighted. The food is excellent, very delicate yet bold flavored and beautifully presented.

During a business trip to Hong Kong, was recommended by a colleague to try Chom Chom and if you like small, funky, buzzy, out of the way places this is definitely for you. Being a busy Saturday night without reservations we were asked to wait but this is all part of the adventure, sitting outside on upturned beer crates, the... More

This restaurant is small and always full. They don't take reservations so it's hard to get a place unless you wait. And waiting can be long. There is loud music. Good music.

I could have given this place a five-star rating after the first bite. Sitting at the counter of the open kitchen, listening to awesome 70's music, and seeing the great mix of people in this tiny restaurant located on the side of a very steep street just made the food at ChomChom more amazing. We started with the Pho Roll... More

Was taken to this lively restaurant by a friend. It was crammed full but we were seated at the bar which was brilliant because we got to see the food being cooked. Food was excellent and the beer was fantastic. It is quite small so be prepared to wait for a table. Highly recommended!

Perfect for late night drunk food or perfect place to stuff your face before/mid going out. Great ambiance. Mega friendly staff will make you the strongest pitcher of alcohol that won't taste like alcohol (maybe I lost my alcohol-palate from excessive drinking but it still tasted good).

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.
