Located in Central Hong Kong and tucked quietly away on Kau U Fong, a pleasantly tranquil side street between Queen Street Central and Aberdeen Street, Beet’s philosophy is rooted in showcasing modern European cuisine, while focusing on seasonal and locally-sourced produce and ingredients. The menu is inspired by chef Barry Quek’s experiences throughout Europe and Asia, and is influenced by both classic and progressive cooking techniques, while still remaining clean, fresh and simple. One of the most special aspects to this truly wonderful restaurant is that the ingredients drive the menu, meaning the entire concept is centred on what is readily available on any given day. Additionally, you will find a drinks list to perfect compliment the food menu that features artisanal spirits, classic cocktails and a carefully curated wine list.
Dear diners, please note that all reservations are for a duration of 2 hours.
Beet is where artistry and modern European cuisine come together in a blissful and delicious harmony. The team behind this Hong Kong haven are expert in the little things, and everything from presentation to which wine or cocktail will match the dish are taken into consideration and executed with finite precision. The restaurant itself, located in Central is chic and minimalist, with wooden furniture and plenty of natural light, suiting the menu perfectly. Speaking of the menu, as we said earlier, Beet’s ethos is all about locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients doing the talking, which means that you’ll need to prepare for a constantly changing menu with dishes subject to availability.
Beet recommends the best way to fully experience what the restaurant is fully about, is to opt for the five-course tasting menu. To give you an idea of what you might expect from the menu – starters of brussel sprouts with black garlic puree and flaked almonds and hamachi crudo with kefir cream and caviar will whet your appetite just beautifully. While, for the main event, dishes like Te Mana lamb with celeriac barigoule and eggplant, wild mushrooms with a walnut emulsion and chestnuts and amadai with Kuruma shrimps and organic greens will leave your palate in modern European heaven. Then, round things off at Beet with marigold ice cream completed by coconut crumbs and white chocolate or a brown butter financier with blueberry jam, for example. You’ll find Beet located on Kau U Fong in Central Hong Kong, where as you would expect, reservations are absolutely essential.
Friendly staff and great food! It's always a good dining experience at Beet 😊
Absolutely beautiful evening - excellent Creative food, very flavourful. The knowledgeable and friendly staff was such a pleasure to interact with. It will ensure we will be back!
Lunch selection is limited, but everything on offer was fresh, expertly prepared and cooked to perfection. Friendly and efficient staff made it a really pleasant experience.
Excellent food and service. We really like the high ceiling of the restaurant which is such a rare gem in Hong Kong! It makes you feel very comfortable when dining. We are also impressed by the use of Zalto glassware for our French Burgundy - its a costly investment for the restaurant and I hope the guests and cleaning staff don't break them too often!
Food is ok. Service not ok. The gent waiter did ask me if it was a bday occasion. I told him no but his teammate still served the dessert w a candle! The most unpleasant thing was when I asked for a chair to house my handbag, the gent waiter said NO and asked me to hang my bag w my chair! His lady colleague instead took a chair from next table for me in the next second. I think the dining table can be 3-4 inches wider in order to meet a decent size table to house the plates and bottle of wine and water. Or else, would repeat thing like I dropped my spoon to the floor.
Great restaurant with great food - very accommodating and kind. They arranged a non-dessert item (salad with eggplant puree and homemade yogurt) for my friend with a candle since she did not want any sweet desserts! Just wished they had more than one non-vegetarian set menu per night or a few additional specials that could be selected. :-) But overall, a great place to dine at!
Excellent food, presentation, and service. Eclectic menu with killer bread (which reminds me of Tartine in San Francisco). Tasting menu is a spectacular value. I really loved every dish I ate here and the staff and chef were warm and welcoming.
Excellent food, all dishes are nicely executed, and ingredients for the main courses are fresh. I also like the simple decor, friendly services there too. The only minus is, tables are a little close to each other, and could get noisy some times.
Very nicely executed dishes, good food, good music with the friendliest staffs! Would totally visit again when the menu has changed after this season! Love this place
The bread is extremely good. The Way the Chef cooked the Ma Yau 馬友 is excellent! A cost effective lunch. More choice of tea is preferred.
