About Fa Zu Jie 法租界
Having won acclaim and awards far beyond Hong Kong, you might think Fa Zu Jie is a massive enterprise with numerous branches in prime positions throughout Central. Instead, it’s an intimate, warmly decorated and relaxed private kitchen hidden away off D’Aguilar Street, with just a handful of tables. With emphasis on taste, innovation and exquisite presentation of its Chinese-inspired international cuisine rather than focus on economic ambition, Fa Zu Jie remains an honest, authentic and world-class dining experience.

To say that Fa Zu Jie is a hidden gem doesn’t quite get the point across sufficiently. First of all, it’s more than hidden, invisibly tucked away from the madness of Lan Kwai Fong in an unmarked, nondescript building on D’Aguilar Street, known largely by word of mouth and accessible only by advanced reservation. Secondly, it’s not just a gem, it’s one of the most polished, precious jewels in Hong Kong’s glittering restaurant crown. Small, intimate, warm and elegant, this private kitchen in Central has garnered awards and attention from around the world for its exquisite Shanghai-guided international food, including recurrent selection in South China Morning Post’s 100 Top Tables and features in Chinese Vogue and Cathay Pacific Inflight magazines.
Meaning ‘the French Concession’ in English, Fa Zu Jie’s philosophy is grounded in the unique culinary heritage of Shanghai. With taste, presentation and limitless creativity as their core values, though, Fa Zu Jie build upon this Chinese foundation, twisting and refining famous dishes and brilliantly incorporating Western influences to create something unique in Hong Kong. The menu changes frequently, but it’s unheard of for a diner to leave this private kitchen on D’Aguilar Street not blown away by what they were served. Its international reputation was earned the hard way, and there is no denying that Fa Zu Jie is now one of the most sought-after restaurants in Central.
Fa Zu Jie was an experience. The owner Chris is very lovely and helpful. The setting is cool and off the beaten track (even though it's SUPER central). The food is creative and tasty. The company welcoming and friendly. If you've never done a fancy private kitchen, this is where I'd go!
Amazing food, great service and wonderful experience! It's a must try if you are visiting Hong Kong. Definitely value for money. BYOB at no corkage too!
It was very kind service. They gave fast reaction to all question. And there were good foods. I want to go to this restaurent again.
The food was very special and the service very attentive! Ideal servings sizes and intervals between dishes make a very satisfying and enjoyable dinner. 6 stars!
Really great service, super attentive, on top of the food and very friendly and caring. Food highlights were the soufflé, pork and fish maw. One let down was the duck which needed a bit more flavour. Outstanding value for 7 courses. Best BYO restaurant in town by a fair way. Very good innovative French/Chinese fusion in own right.
Great "private" restaurant. Good and delicately prepared food. Friendly, and professional, staff. The restaurant is hard to find and you must book ahead of time. Well worth a visit. Ps! You bring your own wine!
Good food and ambience. No corkage is a ++, will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends. Kitchen and surrounding could be tidier as there were a lot of clutter on the kitchen counter and dusty books around
One of the best meals I've had in a long time! Set meal, very creative. We also had a vegetarian who was also impressed. Will certainly return
Great food, great service, reasonably priced: we are utterly impressive with everything for our dining experience. Will go again and highly recommend it to anyone!
Hard to find, but worth the effort, great food and extremely serviceminded staff, do remember though that they don't have a license for serving alcohol.
Only accepts cash or cheque. Great food and a wonderful atmosphere with a service crew to match. Absolute hidden gem in the heart of LKF.
Interesting menu, meats doing well. Combination of taste is fine and well thought. Ginger soufflé is tasty. Ventilation needs to improve. Overall, still a good tryout.
