Food and service was average. Staff forgot to serve my coca cola but still charged it on the bill. They waived it off after I pointed it out to them. Great for picky eaters as you can customize your bowl to your liking

We loved Butao Ramen. This is the only ramen we had in Hong Kong so we can't compare it to any other restaurants there, but we thought that it measured up well to the ramen we had in Japan. Had no problems ordering in English....More

#butao #ramen in #hongkong is pretty damn good; got my bowl in under 5 mins after ordering. Japanese malt beer was good as well. Only negatives: out of char sui pork and thick noodles, otherwise would give 5/5.

This small restaurant in Central is absolutely delicious. My friend and I ordered the Red King and Butao Ramen; both were spot on. The pork belly melted in our mouths. Portions were large and there was free kimchi bean sprouts on the table. You can...More

I ordered the classic Tonkotsu ramen in order to compare to the one at Ichiran. I visited Butao twice and found that the portion served on the first occasion was bigger than the second time. For both occasions, I didn’t have to queue as I...More

My first ramen adventure in Hong kong and I'm hooked. The butao King (squid ink ramen) is a must try. It's made of Tonkatsu broth with squid ink. The squid ink adds a pleasant earthiness creating a rich murky broth. You can customize them from...More

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
