The best restaurants in Tai Kok Tsui
Until recently, Tai Kok Tsui was considered something of a dead zone. Stranded in west Kowloon without an MTR station, the neighbourhood was perceived as an industrial area, like the Kwun Tong of old, with little appeal for visitors. Not any more, though. TKT is buzzing. No MTR means more affordable rent and that’s allowed a number of exciting small restaurants to establish themselves. Cantonese, Japanese omakase, Mediterranean cuisine – you can get just about anything in the neighbourhood these days. Not sure where to start? Read on for our guide to Tai Kok Tsui’s best restaurants.And if the area seems too far to go, try our guide to the best restaurants in Tai Po or North Point instead.
