Certified Halal, this restaurant serves Hong Kong dishes that are heavily influenced by Indian and Arabic styles. Expect a lot of beef and mutton dishes. Their beef pancakes are superb! As pointed out by other reviewers, getting here isn’t easy, as it is a 20 to 30-minute walk from the Lok Fu MTR Station. We took the green-top minibus from Kowloon Tong and even then it was a 10-minute away, and we had a local friend who knew her way around. BUT... we later found out that the 106 bus from Causeway Bay takes us much closer to the restaurant. For those who may not know this, Kowloon City is in the vicinity of the former Kai Tak now airport; it is made of several streets, all packed with various (mostly mid-priced) restaurants, and is very popular with the locals.

Recommended by an acquaintance from Hong Kong. It was a hassle to find, a long walk from the nearest metro in a dull neighborhood. But those buns! Think: soup dumpling meets scallion pancake, a flaky pastry dough stuffed beef. Delicious. Enjoyed a curry as well. Solid preparation of a somewhat rare (in the West) regional style of Chinese cuisine.

Tasty food (Chinese food and some middle east food) and fast services. It is always packed and if you go with a group of 4 or more you might find it difficult to seat comfortably since the table is big round table where you can share with other people. The price is a little bit high but still affordable. We order 2 rice, 1 samosa, chicken and meat dish, and coke and we pay around HK$250 (you can get a single dinner in around HK$45). It is so rare to find halal Chinese food and this is one of them if you want to try the local food with Halal safety in it.

A must go if you are looking to dine halal only meals! Tasty and delicious Cantonese style dishes are served here. The veal goulash, clear beef vermicelli soup and the beef/mutton curry is a must try if you are here. One of best in Hong Kong!! There are two thing that might be a bother though...getting there and table sharing. It's not really exactly accessible. It's far from any MTR. Nearest MTR, Lok Fu ( light green : Kwun Tong Line ) is a good 20 mins walk...and I'm a fast walker. Take a taxi ( HKD 28 : USD 3.50 ) at the Lok Fu mall just above the station to the location. Just show the driver the attached map for the directions or simply tell him the name of the road. Once there be prepared that it's going to be a table sharing concept so you might be sharing a table with other diners. If you are indeed particular about this...do avoid lunch hours between 11.45 - 2.00 and dinner hours 6 pm - 8 pm. Nevertheless I'm a foodie and when it comes to food...everything goes as long as it's safe and halal!!
