Hong Kong Restaurant Week by DiningCity returns this spring! Here’s everything to look forward to and Sassy’s top picks…
With the return of DiningCity’s Hong Kong Restaurant Week, we’re ready to indulge our inner foodies with unbeatable deals at over 200 of the city’s top-rated dining destinations.
For the uninitiated, the premise is deliciously simple. Running until Sunday, 26 March, you can enjoy specially crafted menus from some of Hong Kong’s most esteemed restaurants, for a fraction of the typical price! With lunch sets starting from $148 and dinner from $298, this is your chance to discover new culinary favourites, including fine dining venues, Michelin-starred eateries, five-star hotel restaurants and more.
Are you hungry yet? As much as we wish we could sample all 200 menus, we know we’ve only got room for so much food. To help you narrow down the choices, we’re offering our top picks from this year’s Restaurant Week lineup.
Vista – Dinner Set Menu, $568
Loved aqua’s old venue at One Peking Road? You can still enjoy its panoramic views and high ceilings at Vista Ristorante. The new venture, which opened late last year, brings the iconic space back to life with bold Italian-inspired dishes by Executive Chef Andrea Mura.
Menu highlights: Choose one cicchetti and pasta dish to start, then pick between six mains including Salt Baked Sea Bass, Grilled Australian Rib-Eye and Breaded Veal Cutlet. Finish with a plate of Table-Side Tiramisu or Strawberry & White Chocolate Tarte.

Carbon Brews – Lunch Set Menu, $198
Book a casual lunch with friends at convivial Central watering hole Carbon Brews. The three-course lunch set will set you back just under $200 and comes with a small house beer. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Menu highlights: Choose between the Avocado Salad, Butter Lettuce and Steamed Mussels for your starter, followed by a main of Charred Miyazaki Pork Belly, Hanger Steak, Crab Meat Orecchiette or Mushroom Risotto. End with Matcha Lava Cake with ice cream or Apple Cinnamon Cake for dessert.
Casa Cucina – Brunch Set Menu, $198
You’ll be filling up your phone’s camera roll as you dine at this Instagram favourite, and of course, filling your belly with Venetian-inspired cicchetti and comforting mains. We can’t pass up this special brunch offering and are equally tempted to book the Dinner Sharing Set Menu at just $438 per person.
Menu highlights: For starters, decide between its signature crostinis and croquettes, then choose from mains such as Duck Ragu Pappardelle and Seafood Tagliatelle, to be followed by either Tofu Panna Cotta or Tiramisu for dessert.
