The first time we visited Hong Kong we visited the Peak at night. Now most days were cloudy, rainy and a little foggy, but at night the fog was gone and we had a great view and dinner at The Peak Lookout with our friend Eric.

Victoria Peak in Hong Kong - Restaurants and Attractions

As with most other world famous attractions, when the tourists come, they build shopping and attractions. There is no exception here. I was actually surprised and a little sad to see how commercial it is. But as with other attractions, we ignored what we weren't interested in and did what we wanted to do.

You will find lots of restaurants including:

  •  a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
  • Pearl on the Peak - western dishes
  • Tien Yi Chinese Restaurant

In the Galleria mall (next to the Observation building) you will find:

We were in the mood for sushi when we went up the Peak, so we decided to have lunch with a view at Kyo Hachi Japanese Restaurant in the observation building itself with a view. The food was OK, the view was awesome, and the service wasn't so great. Oh and it was expensive, but then again you are paying for the view.
