Glasshouse Central is part of Hong Kong’s Gaia Group and offers a home-away-from-home concept that is immensely popular. So popular, in fact, that there are three Glasshouse restaurants in Hong Kong, each serving your all-time favourite Asian and Western delicacies made with premium ingredients. You’ll find Glasshouse Central on Harbour View Street where the space is bright, airy and open. The hospitality at this Central restaurant is also top notch – as it is at any restaurant in the Gaia Group, for that matter – making it a lovely choice for whatever your casual occasion might be. Reservations are essential, particularly at weekends.
Food quality is always consistent. The food is full of flavours but a bit salty. Also the tables are set too close to each other so not ideal for a romantic date.
It was our second time there and loved both times. I know that it's a very busy restaurant, but I dont like to be given a time limit when I go to a restaurant. The longer we stay at a restaurant the more money we spend.
Glasshouse Central is a contemporary space that’s big enough for a group celebration yet cosy and intimate enough for a more low-key evening. True to its name, the front of the restaurant is made entirely of glass so there are views out towards the harbour at all times – it’s bright and breezy during the day then lovely and atmospheric once the sun has set. In terms of food at Glasshouse Central, Hong Kong foodies know this is a place to head for a menu that balances Asian and Western flavours in just the right way. You can expect classic dishes from both sides of the world as well as some that are unique to the Glasshouse kitchen.
It’s fair to say that Glasshouse Central is best known for its premium-quality Wagyu burger, but the Korean-style steak sandwich is also good, as are the crab cakes with organic corn and yuzu mayo. If you feel like something Westen, Glasshouse Central serves some of the most authentic fish and chips in Hong Kong, then we suggest ending with banana creme brulee, another dish that Glasshouse is famous for. Head to Harbour View Street with a reservation if you want to be sure of table.
