Restaurants in Cheung Chau are some of the best places in Hong Kong for rich seafood at very friendly prices. Most are open-air venues located along the harbour, offering views of the South China Sea. 

    The Chinese have such a rich culture when it comes to food, which you'll experience when sampling authentic dim sum and flavourful noodles on this island. Street stalls are plentiful in Cheung Chau – local vendors carry various types of dishes including roast pork and fish balls, as well as local pastries and desserts made from tofu and red beans. 


    Bayview Chinese Restaurant

    Bayview Chinese Restaurant at The Warwick Hotel is one of the few restaurants in Cheung Chau that serves classic Cantonese cuisine in an elegant setting.

    It can accommodate around 300 people and has large windows with impressive views of the South China Sea. The food menu features freshly made dim sum in the morning and classic Cantonese dishes for dinner. Must-tries include the Warwick shrimp dumplings, turnip cake with XO sauce, and beef rice rolls.

    Hometown Teahouse

    • Couples

    Hometown Teahouse is a lovely small restaurant with a basic setup (a few tables on a terrace), but it's very popular for its soft red bean pancakes and hand-rolled sushi.

    Owned and run by a Japanese lady, Hometown Teahouse gets really crowded during the day, so most people order a takeaway set through a small window outside the shop. 

    Location: 12 Tung Wan Road, Cheung Chau, Hong Kong

    Open: Daily from 1pm to 10pm
