During the Pride parade, I went to HK Hell’s Kitchen for lunch with my friends!
Things to remember: CASH ONLY
Customer Service: Okay so here’s my main issue, the host and hostess were very confused!! After we put our name in, we waiting outside because there was almost no room in the actual restaurant to wait for a table. After waiting for almost an hour, a hostess who did not initially help us, went and asked another group if they wanted the available table. But they had been waiting for less time than we had!!! Luckily, they were waiting for a friend so I was able to speak to the hostess and get the table for myself and my group.
Atmosphere: It was a small place, but it looked like most of the people there were preparing to go to the parade! It wasn’t rowdy, but the music was good, I actually wish it was much louder!
Menu: I have so much to say! It was a nice and simple menu with a lot of choices, but not overwhelming. Not only was the menu great for my boyfriend who only eats seafood, but there was quite a selection, I could not choose what to get at first! What we all knew we wanted was the brunch special. With this special, you can have unlimited mimosas, screwdrivers, bellinis or champagne with anything of the meals on the menu for only $16.95 extra, and this is quite the deal if you like to drink! They had breakfast and brunch options, lunch options and more, it’s a well designed menu for sure!
Drinks: The drinks were honestly not that good, but after a few, you don’t care anymore. I felt like the orange juice was cheap and it was the main component in two of the drinks, so I was not impressed. The drinks were also warm, so that was definitely a downer.
$$$: I think it could have been less expensive for sure. I wasn’t as happy with my food or drinks as I thought I would be.
FOOD: As you can see in the featured picture, the presentation was beautiful! Although my friends weren’t huge fans of the fries, I really enjoyed them. They went perfectly with the wasabi sauce that came with my boyfriend’s sandwich. My favorite part was that we got sooo many fries, so when my friends didn’t finish them, I ate them instead, ha!
I ordered a Lobster Sandwich. It was alright. I wish I would have ordered something different since the menu was so interested. I was definitely filled up after eating mine and my boyfriend’s fries but the sandwich was puny and I was not a fan, it didn’t have much lobster and was more expensive that I wanted it to be.
My boyfriend ordered a Salmon Burger. WOW was that good! I had a small bite of it with some of the wasabi sauce and I definitely wish I had chosen that option on the menu instead. It had SO much flavour and it was SO big!!
Overall, I had a really good time. Our waiter was a sweetheart and had the best suspenders for pride week and the food was good enough that I had no complaints. Unlimited drinks is never something to complain about either, so I can say I had a good enough experience.
- Drinks were okay, presentation was great, food was just okay!
