Aqua Restaurant - Hong Kong | Restaurant Review

Trendy and chic dining, with bombastic views


Restaurant Category : Italian, Japanese

Aqua Restaurant - Hong Kong - From the moment you step through the automatic sliding doors just off the elevator and in to Aqua you know you are in for a treat.

Perched from its location atop the building at One Peking Road in Kowloon, Aqua offers an ultra hip and trendy interior and from its expansive windows, breathe taking views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong below.

Aqua's menu is no less enticing; a fusion of Japanese and Italian, my two favorites rolled into one.

My evening started with their Aqua Mojito, the best Mojito I have had since I set foot in Asia, followed by a simple, but purely delicious salad of warm lobster, mushrooms on arugula with a light lemon dressing. Fantastic!

And another best; the Crema di Funghi (cream of forest mushroom soup with ricotta cheese dumplings) could go head to head with any award winning soup in Italy. Delicious.

The next course, scallop and red prawn ravioli, was a let down (especially after the salad and soup) and the beef tenderloin with mashed sweet pumpkin did not measure up to the starters either but, it was still enjoyed.

The dinner was saved by Aqua's signature tiramisu', a beautiful glass of Woodstock dessert wine and just the right lounge music to make an evening complete.

While the service was a bit erratic and sometimes intrusive, it was still an overall bombastic experience at Aqua.

If you go, be sure to allow some time either before or after dinner to visit Aqua Spirit, Aqua's lounge bar, which overlooks the restaurant. It is the place to see and be seen.

Aqua is definitely a place I will visit next time I am in Hong Kong. Hip, trendy, good food, great views and atmosphere; pretty much everything one needs for a bombastic evening.
