Has anyone been to the revamped Landmark Cafe, Central HK since it re-opened? How's the food nowadays?

    still rather ordinary, expensive given the $ goes to the rent. walk up 1 floor to Salon de Tea (de Robuchon) and have the best baguettes croissants and macroons in HK...

      I liked both Salon de The & Landmark Cafe, but for different stuff - Salon de The's croissants & pastries are to-die for, but I go to Landmark Cafe for their Chinese food.

      It still remains as one of my 'must visit' everytime I travel back to Hong Kong. Perhaps it is more the tradition for me (my mom loves this place), but I still can't clear out of my mouth the amazing taste of the Lobster Linguini.

      Albeit the high price, it is still worth it in my mind. I'm salivating now just thinking about it.....

        I liked Landmark Cafe's fried rice with egg-white & conpoy, topped with baby abalone. Like you, it became a sort of pilgrimage everytime I visit HK. Other food's so-so. Some dishes, e.g. Shanghai dumplings in soup tasted like the one at Sevva, Prince Building. just wondering if the fried rice/abalone's still as good post-renovation/revamp.

          Had lunch a few weeks ago and not that memorable, but I didn't have the lobster linguini. It's been a while since you can walk in at lunch w/o a reservation...economy is hurting.
