Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 24 January 2024 via mobile

The dinner place we went to on the first night in HK. No regrets and it’s one of my highlights. The coconut chicken soup is nice and fragrant. The variety of food is wide and good quality. I really enjoyed it. Service is good as...well with proper wine glasses. Quite prompt when we needed to order extra and the service staff is polite! Pricing wise, we paid about 2.8k amongst 5 pax. Not sure what’s the usual price range of hotpot in HK. Definitely a good experience and highlight for me.More

The decoration of this hot pot restaurant is very special and very traditional. It is indeed an authentic place; there are many nostalgic neon lights, benches and lanterns. ❣️Sake-braised clam This soup base is very aftertaste. The ingredients include a lot of clams/sake/scallions/garlic/coriander/peppers/onions... Special personnel...are in charge All ingredients are fresh. ❣️Fresh fruit Grass jelly pot The smoke and colorful fruits are another popular choice. There are red watermelon flesh, orange mango flesh, white dragon fruit flesh, and black jelly, which are rich in taste. The combination of sour, sweet and cold is also a good companion for hot pot. **I really like their homemade Thai hot and sour sauce, no matter if you eat with seafood/meatMore

A cute restaurant in causeway bay specializing in Hong Kong style hotpot!! Love the neon light interior that has a local vibe to it. Tried the coconut chicken soup base which was so flavorful and rich. The angus beef, dumplings, beef balls were tasty and...decently portioned.More

🤣 Located in Causeway Bay, "A Smoking Affair" has a playful and whimsical atmosphere with various neon light photo spots. The interior decoration has a nostalgic touch, perfect for enjoying a rolling good time with friends! 🥰 ⭐ Yin-Yang Soup Base
The secret satay soup...base has a rich and spicy flavor with a hint of peanut. Even after adding water a few times, it maintains its thick consistency. Overall, it tastes similar to the popular instant noodle brand. On the other hand, the tomato pork bone potato soup is packed with ingredients. The sweetness of the tomato really stands out, giving it an authentic tomato soup taste. ⭐ Golden Crispy Fish Skin
When it comes to hot pot, indulgence is key, and this fish skin is truly over-the-top! It's generously coated with salted egg yolk, and each bite offers a salty and fragrant crunch! ⭐ Colorful Fresh Fruit Jelly Pot
After enjoying the spicy hot pot, it's essential to cool down with something refreshing! The smoky jelly pot is perfect for capturing Instagram-worthy moments. The combination of jelly and evaporated milk is a classic, but pairing it with fresh fruits adds a delightful and refreshing twist. It's a perfect way to soothe the heat after the hot pot session!More

Located in Midtown of Causeway Bay, this luxurious hot pot restaurant is named "Go Rolls" which is a play on words that refers to the boiling hot soup in hot pot and also implies a humorous suggestion for men to "go roll" around. The restaurant...boasts a high-end ambiance and offers top-quality food. Not only are the ingredients fresh, but the seasoning is also just right. One of the most unforgettable dishes is the crispy fish skin with salted egg yolk dip ($98), which is crispy and flavorful. Another must-try dish is the colorful fresh fruit and coconut jelly pot ($108), which is made with frozen smooth coconut milk, coconut flakes, and red beans, and is the perfect dessert to cool down after enjoying the hot and spicy hot pot.More

While hotpot is becoming more and more popular in Hong Kong, this is one of the few options with quality. A Smoking Affair is a cozy place in a modern building in Causeway Bay. Decor is funky. Food is the conventional choice. Coconut and chicken...broth is a mild take. Beef brisket is tender and flavorful. Service is polite. Price is on the upper end.More

Do not ever go to this place if you are just a regular customer and not their VIP. Having been to a fair share of restaurants including Michelin star restaurants in the city, this is the most humiliated I've ever felt dining in Hong Kong....The two of us ordered a chicken hotpot and a bunch of hot pot food, we sat there in the cold for more than an hour and still no food whatsoever. All the customers who arrived AFTER us got their food and still nothing for us. We ended up leaving the place without eating anything because if we waited any longer, we'd be giving them permission to humiliate us further. During that one hour waiting in the cold at our table, we asked once about our food. The waitress dismissed us by saying "the chicken hot pot you ordered would need 15 minutes". But at the time of asking, we'd already been waiting for more than 30 minutes - and the waitress herself was the one who put in the order for us when we first sat down. And when we decided to leave the restaurant, none of these staff seemed concerned at all and no apologies whatsoever. This is by far the WORST restaurant I've been to in HK.More
