Nothing says Hong Kong date night quite like a dim sum date! Man Mo Dim Sum has a unique menu crafted by two chefs who previously worked at Robuchon and Din Tai Fung. It features playful veggie, meat and seafood dim sum options; we’re talking tomato mozzarella dim sum, five spices lamb bun, tom yum xiao long bao as well as Nutella balls and HK egg lemon tart for the sweet-toothed!
What Sassy Mama loves: I love the sophisticated yet relaxed decor and ambience of the restaurant. There are comfortable sofas where you can sit back and relax as well as high chairs that face the street for those who love to people-watch! – Najuka Redkar (Editor, Sassy Mama Hong Kong)
11 Westside — Romantic mood lighting and top-quality tacos
Headed by Mexican native on Netflix’s cooking show The Final Table, Chef Esdras Ochoa, 11 Westside is a unique space for you and your partner’s Mexican food cravings. Expect gorgeous cocktails or Champagne to go with your savoury meals! We like the dimly lit space that makes it more cosy and laid-back. Plus, if you love a good deal, book ahead for Taco Tuesday where the tacos are all half-priced.
What Sassy Mama loves: “I love the tableside guacamole (the tacos and margaritas are excellent too), the music they play (hip hop) and the general vibe of the restaurant.” – Maura Thompson (Co-Founder, Sassy Media Group)
Aaharn – Thai fine dining restaurant in Hong Kong with a cosy ambience
Helmed by chef David Thompson, Aaharn uses the best quality ingredients bought directly from Thailand and hand-pressed coconut milk in all its delicious curries that burst with flavour. Each main dish is served with rice, plus it has a wonderful wine and cocktail selection that has been crafted to complement the Thai food flavours. Its quiet and cosy yet elevated ambience makes it the perfect place to relax and tables are spaced out so there’s a feeling of privacy.
aqua — Sweeping night view of hong kong and an intimate dining experience
A stunning and sophisticated restaurant located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, aqua is a popular choice amongst couples looking for date night spots. The romantic ambience, friendly service and unique Italian-Japanese fusion have patrons coming back! We definitely recommend calling ahead and to book a table that’s close to the window to get the best view of the harbour.
What Sassy Mama loves: “Stunning food, service and spectacular views. It never disappoints. Thoughtful touches like intimate mood lighting go a long way as well” – Jess Mizzi (Senior Editor, Sassy Mama Hong Kong)
CHAAT – Romantic restaurant in Hong Kong perfect for special occasions
Michelin one-star restaurant, CHAAT has couples booking ahead (when a restaurant is always booked, you know it’s a crowd-pleaser) for its authentic Indian flavours and elevated and modern setting. You can trust CHAAT (or any of Rosewood’s romantic restaurants, really) to have your special occasion taken care of; be it an anniversary, birthday or a just because type of night date. The sheer opulence of every dish will spoil you and we recommend going for the tasting menu to get a bite of all the signatures.
Dim Sum Library – Contemporary take on dim sum
Set in a 1920’s Chinese birdcage-inspired decor, Dim Sum Library offers a contemporary evolution of dim sum with fresh ingredients, intriguing textures and flavours as well as a full selection of classic cocktails, wines, spirits and bespoke Chinese tea cocktails that you’ll both love to explore.
