After reading positive reviews on AJ's we decided to try this place out. Tried their set lunch for a change plus ordered a prawns with vegetables dish. The lamb curry was extremely spicy and was served lukewarm, other food that came with it looked and tasted terrible. Prawn were literally cooked in ketchup. With set lunch there was an option...

Delicious, fresh, reasonably priced food in old Sai Kung. The varied menu allows plenty of choice. If, like us, you aren't very familiar with Sri Lankan food then take advice from the helpful staff about spicy/hot dishes before ordering. The dishes will be served according to your wishes. Their famous black lamb curry is well worth trying. There are a... More

A last minute pass from the good lady wife, led my guest and I to AJ's to enjoy a few very strong but tasty beers and try the famous black lamb curry. It didn't disappoint. Basic decor but we went for the food and drink. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable of the dishes and ingredients. Reasonably priced. I will return.

We fell over AJ's after a long walk and were well in need of a good feed. We were there early and got a table for two inside (although they do have some seating outside). We had black lamb curry and dahl which was strongly flavoured with coconut. 2 mains and a rice plus roti was a good amount and... More

A J's is a cosy spot in Sai Kung old town. The food is consistently of good quality with a wide ranging menu. Traditional hoppers need to be ordered in advance, but the string hoppers and kottu roti are always available. There is a good selection of curries and devilled dishes as well as Lamprais. Staff are happy to recommend... More

Pretty damn good! Very chilled. Was recommended a couple of dishes by the staff - black lamb and devilled prawns. Both hit the spot. Full of flavour, fresh and good value for money.

Family and I ate at this cosy little restaurant, and it was a super dinning experience. Try the set meals, which has vegetarian options. It also has seating outside.

Sadly most great restaurants that we have found in Hong Kong over the years have had their day in the sun and then faded away into the depths of dining mediocrity with thousands of other restaurants in the city. In the end, most end up being places with overpriced dishes, consistent food quality and a real lack of adequate service... More

There is absolutely nothing disappointing about this restaurant and the Sri Lankan food. Ask for it spicy, medium or totally bland and that's what you will receive. I don't mean the order of bland food was such, it's just good on its own for someone who can't have any spice whatsoever.

The food I had here with friends a few nights ago was spicy but extremely flavourful- we had the Vegetable Spring Rolls, Lamb Curry, Black Lamb Curry, String Hopper Kothu, a Garlic Roti and a Coconut Roti between 3 people. The portions are a good size- there ended up a little bit too much food between us so I was... More
