I just had a quick lunch at Cafe Causette in Mandarin Oriental Hotel. I waited for 10 minutes and received no service at all. I finally got a waitress and order a Laksa. The food did come very quickly. However, the food was a total disappointment. The temperature of the food was lukewarm. It tasted like some rice noodle in... More

One of our rooms was not ready so we were offered a free meal here while waiting. The service was very good. Both of my boys had steaks and they were prepared very well and they ate every bite!

The food is excellent and right up there with Mandarin Oriental standards, however my only issue is that some of the tables are too close to others to allow for private conversations. Whether you go for breakfast, which is outstanding, or lunch, choose your table carefully. It is possible to pre-book tables, and request where they are located, but it... More

This is a lovely cafe situated in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Breakfast delicious (especially the porridge) Supper equally scruffy - sample the steamed cod!

A nice place, needs a bit of touches to soften it in the evening when it can feel soulless. The reception staff can be more friendly. The food is good and reliable. I like to drop by for lunch or dinner when I am in a hurry and do not want a fussy place. Reliable.

Set dinner was a little overpriced. Both our strip loin steak main courses were gristly and chewy. Apple pie was a very generous sized portion, but too sweet. Ambience was lacking for an evening meal. I had to move after the waiter put me right next to the service counter, where waiters noisily sorted cutlery and crockery.

I was invited for Afternoon Tea here by friends while on a trip to Hong Kong. The whole experince was memorable, from the moment I entered. The maitre d', Terry, was incredibly attentive and went the extra mile to make it an unforgettable afternoon. The Mandarin is the only place for Afternoon Tea when in Hong Kong.

The cafe inside Mandarin Oriental is not cheap as to be expected. Service is very professional. The interior is full of natural light, chairs are comfy, and lots of beautifully patterned spheres/lanterns hanging from the ceiling. The menu has a select few dishes from varying cuisines.

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.
