It's a very unique for someone who really like Lebanese food! It's a small but very friendly place, with delicious foods such as the best falafel I've ever had and a delicious babbaganoush - and note that I'm from lebanese family! Mr. Josef Assaf is very kind. I strongly recommend this place.

The food is very nice, it's a great place to sit and watch fashionable business people skirting by on Lyndhurst Terrace. I fire up my laptop after eating, sip lime sodas and hang... More

I headed to Assaf in the SoHo area of HK after following the Lonely Planet guide. Surprisingly the 20 seater restaurant was completely empty. I opted to sit on a table that was between two other tables and was requested to move to one of the corner tables just in case a big group arrived. Fair enough, but nobody did... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
