May 2021: With the new vaccine bubble, which started April 29, restaurants with vaccinated staff who have received their first dose of the jab will be allowed to operate until midnight and seat up to six customers per table. Thereafter, with staff that have received their second vaccination, restaurants can set up an area for customers who have taken their first vaccine dose, seating eight guests per table at 75 percent capacity and resume dining services until 2am. In light of this situation, we felt it appropriate to give recognition and support to our pick of the best restaurants that are feeding and serving joy to Hong Kong during this time.
As usual, temperature checks and hand sanitiser will be given to guests upon arrival, and customers must wear masks before and after the meal, and when picking up their orders. Guests must also log into the 'Leave Home Safe' app or register their contact details. Visit this link for regular updates on social distancing regulations in Hong Kong.
