There’s no better way to celebrate a special occasion than over a good meal, and while there are plenty of restaurants for you to choose from in Hong Kong, not all of them are suitable for dining in big groups – luckily, you've got us. Whether it's a sophisticated restaurant with a gorgeous view or a down-to-earth dai pai dong gathering, we've rounded up some of the best places in Hong Kong that are perfect for big group dining. 

RECOMMENDED: Consider yourself a bit of a lone wolf? There are lots to do in the city even when you're alone.

Best Hong Kong restaurants for dining in groups

  • Restaurants
  • Hot pot
  • Tsim Sha Tsui
  • price 3 of 4

As far as group dining goes, it really doesn't get more local than hotpots. Sporting interiors that are rustic, artistic, reminiscent of a contemporary fish market and look, well, really hip, The Drunken Pot is the epitome of cool. One must-try is the signature The Ultimate Drunken Pot. Featuring five different soup bases in one copper pot, there's sake, seafood and all sorts of premium ingredients to dunk your food in. There are private rooms for group bookings too, so you can celebrate with your friends away from prying eyes.

  • Restaurants
  • Australian
  • Tsim Sha Tsui

Bringing together not just great food but also a great view, Hue is a spacious, modern Australian restaurant located next to the Hong Kong Museum of Art. Large groups of diners can settle down in the semi-private room to experience a culinary showcase of Aussie fare, paired with a panoramic view of the Victoria Harbour. Stunning.

  • Restaurants
  • British
  • Causeway Bay

By day, this space caters to members of Maggie & Rose, the private family club from the UK that operates a couple of branches in Hong Kong. After 7pm each night, however, it transforms into The Leah, where 'British food done right' is the M.O. in the kitchen and a tucked-away outdoor bar offers sanctuary from the city's helter-skelter rhythm. Expect classics like beef Wellington and scotch eggs with soldiers, as well as clever riffs on the Pimm's Cup and several iterations of the Tom Collins.

The Stadium Bar and Restaurant
  • Bars and pubs
  • Sports bars
  • Kwun Tong

This American-style sports bar has a good range of craft beers, cocktails, wines and spirits. Snacks on offer include buffalo wings and chilli cheese fries or you can opt for more substantial offerings such as pasta, sandwiches, steaks and seafood. With pool tables, darts machines, table football and sports on the TV, there's everything you and all your sports-loving friends could want, without the exercise! Spanning across a 7,000 sq ft space, there's plenty of room to let the good times roll.

  • Restaurants
  • North Point

Don’t come expecting first class service – the tables are crowded, the staff hurried and the music often booming – but the food keeps the crowds coming back time and time again. Tung Po is basically the rites of passage for anyone new to Hong Kong. Everyone raves about the wind sand chicken and fried durian – and they’re justified in doing so. And of course, the signature of Tung Po is their "fighter's bowl", which is essentially your everyday rice bowl, only it's meant for drinking beer out of. If you're looking for a booze-filled celebration, this is the place. Reservations highly recommended.
