Ready to order your dishes in sign language? Friends Italian Restaurant is run by staff who are deaf or have hearing impairments so you’re taught to communicate a few key phrases in basic Hong Kong sign language! The relaxed Italian café-meets-bistro is all about promoting social integration for people with disabilities. Friends believes that everyone is unique and has different talents to bring to the table (pun intended!). I was recently here to support a SENsational Consultancy event, so I can fully vouch for the quality of service and the thoughtful staff. Whether you’re heading out for a Sunday meal with the family, or organising a corporate event, this spot proves that we all have so much to learn about diversity and inclusion.
