Hong Kong: Walking distance from Ocean Terminal?

Looking for restaurants that have menus in English or pictures within walking distance of Ocean Terminal for a two day overnight cruise port stop in Hong Kong in a few weeks.

Loved South Beauty in Shanghai because we were able to navigate the picture menu with our own sparse knowledge about Chinese food ......... in China anyway. We know our way around an American Chinese menu, but I think this doesn't count on their home turf.

Thanks.

    There are at least 4-5 good quality 'Michelin star' Chinese restaurants within walking distance that offer menus in both English and Chinese which one can easily navigate without pictures. They are the 2* Tan'g Court, 1* Yun Toh Heen, 1* Hu Tong, 1* Ding Tai Fung, 1* Shanghai Night...etc In addition, there are dozens upon dozens of restaurants inside the commercial buildings along the Canton road stretch!! So many choices, so little time!!

      Thanks. I should have qualified my request more. Did some research on this board and do think we will be looking for dim sum. I read the wonderful list with photos of various spots in HK, but no locations given.

      Are any of these near Ocean Terminal for starters?

      Victoria City Teahouse - Citric Tower or Sung Hung Kai Plaza
      Golden Leaf at the Conrad Hotel
      Luk Yu Teahouse

      Thanks. Appreciate getting these close by high end restaurants too. It will be a wonderful world to explore for a few days.

        Do not go to Luk Yu for dim sum!!! Quality is very mediocre!!
        Your list are all on the Hong Kong islnad side! For Dim Sum close to the Ocean Terminal. I would head to the 2* Tan'g Court in the Langham Hotel or the 1* Yun Toh Heen inside the Intercontinental. There's also Spring Moon inside the world famous Peninsula Hotel! BTW, the nearest would be the Victoria City inside the Ocean Terminal!!

          What about Seafood Superstar Restaurant on Nathan Road?

            Been there a couple of times. Local favourite but not impressed with the food. IMO, mediocre and tend to charge high end pricing for some uninspired dishes. Like overcooked Wagyu beef in sizzling hotpot.

      Just in case - though you may already have since found out - Ocean Terminal is not on the Hong Kong Island side. If you're doing some more research, look for places that say they are in Kowloon.
