Koh Thai got something mandatory each time we get to Hong Kong. First evening, Koh Thai! The food is amazingly fresh, full of flavors and taste, the waiters fast, the crowd trendy and the music indulging.

This is one of the best Thai restaurants I have eaten in outside of Thailand. The food is prepared to ultra high standards and the presentation and service are second to none.

We have dined at Koh Thai twice this week during our 5 day stay in HK. We have been very impressed on both occasions. The first floor open terrace has a real charm about it with the busy goings on of Wan Chai district happening down below; very atmospheric. We enjoyed the giant prawns in a yellow curry on the...

Nice ambience and authentic thai decor with indoor and outdoor seatings. But food and service were quite average - nothing too surprising at all...

Having been here at least 20 times, I have to say it might be one of the best Thai restaurants around the globe: the ingredients are incredibly fresh, the dishes amazingly yummy, the choice is overloading, as might be your table, if you just order some of the fantastic options this venue offers. Staff is attentive, prices decent, wines even... More

I love Thailand and frequently travel there - so needless to say, I always need my thai-food fix. I was recommended Koh Thai by a family friend, and boy do I regret coming here. Service: Poor. It was so bad I'm not sure what words can I use to describe it. The asian (chinese) lady who I think is the... More

We really enjoyed the food and the lovely terrace here. It is a bit pricy, but the location is just great. Only the staff should be a little better considering the price level.

Vegetarians DO NOT bother coming here!!! Staff is unhelpful and unfriendly or maybe racist (as I am brown skinned) and that is pretty common in hong kong. I don't know but they were so unhelpful when we said we were vegetarian. Would not even offer to accommodate our special dietary requirement. I would not recommend to anyone if you are... More

I first found Koh Thai food on a junk trip (they cater junk parties) and enjoyed it so much that I brought visitors to HK here on their first night. I've since visited on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. Lovely food (including my favourite Massaman curry), pleasant atmosphere (especially if you sit outside) and great cocktails. Highly... More

This restaurant offers on-line reservations, which I thought to utilize. I shouldn't have, for the staff knew nothing about our reservation when we arrived. We were seated outside, which was another mistake in that it was threatening to rain and it sprinkled on us three or four times. It's also difficult to read the menu outside in the evening. Some...

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
