Throwing a private dinner party is a great way to celebrate a special occasion or simply to enjoy some quality time with your loved ones over good food and drinks. It’s also a great way to avoid any rowdy crowds, especially during the holiday season. But if you don’t have the space to host the dinner party of your dreams at home, or if you lack the culinary prowess or the dedication to face the clean-up work afterwards, there are a lot of great restaurants in town that will happily take care of the heavy lifting for you. From a secret venue hidden inside a hotel kitchen to a Southside restaurant that serves wonderful homemade pastas and Italian fare, the places below are great choices for private dining functions that you and your guests are sure to remember.

The best restaurants in Hong Kong for private dinner parties and events

Ta Pantry
  • Restaurants
  • Wan Chai

With spacious, stylish interiors and a warm, homey vibe, Ta Pantry is an easy favourite for private dinner parties. The brainchild of chef Esther Sham, Ta Pantry started off as a tiny private kitchen housed within a Star Street apartment. It moved into a bigger space in North Point for a brief while before resettling in Wan Chai with an adjoining restaurant, Maison Es. The space is decked out like someone’s home, with a long dining table that seats up to 24 people, a 48-inch TV screen and a fully equipped open kitchen. There are several set menus to choose from, including Le Japonais ($750-$850 per person), L’Indochine ($750 per person) and Le Shanghaien ($750 per person) – many bring together Esther’s Asian heritage with her French culinary training. There are also more than 140 different wines on offer, meaning that your glass will never be empty. There’s a $10,000 minimum spend Monday to Thursday and $13,500 on weekends and public holidays.

The Krug Room

  • Central

Not only is it the most extravagant private dining experience in town, The Krug Room at The Mandarin Oriental is the only one of its kind in the world. Hidden within The Chinnery’s kitchen, the venue is an elegant space with an interior that mirrors a train carriage and décor that changes with the seasons. Up to 12 guests can fit around the large white marble table, which acts as the main stage for chef Robin Zavou’s multisensory tasting menu. Expect anywhere from 10 to 14 courses, all with a different taste, look and story. The restaurant also boasts the largest collection of Krug champagnes in Asia, so be sure to pop open a few bottles.

Pomegranate Kitchen
  • Restaurants
  • Mediterranean
  • Aberdeen

This gorgeous Wong Chuk Hang venue is perfect for larger parties and celebrations. Including its sprawling outdoor terrace, Pomegranate spans more than 3,000 sq ft and can seat close to 150 guests. You can hire the venue for half a day ($6,000) or for a full day ($10,000) and you can waive the venue-hiring fees if you go the recommended route and get the Pomegranate team to do the catering as well. The kitchen offers several flexible food options, including a family-style menu that allows you to mix and match from a long list of Mediterranean dishes, from mezzes and salads to fish tagine and kofta meatballs. If Pomegranate is a little too roomy for your event, there’s also the slightly smaller – though still impressively spacious – 8D by Pomegranate a few floors above.

  • Restaurants
  • Italian
  • Aberdeen

As its name suggests, this Southside venue allows guests to enjoy food and art in one single setting. The venue seats up to 40 guests and can be booked out for both lunch ($8,000 minimum spend) and dinner ($12,000 minimum spend). On the food front, expect beautifully plated Italian fare, such as homemade pastas and Italian panettone. The dishes are just as attention-grabbing as the stunning works of art that decorate the spacious 4,000 sq ft restaurant.
