Workers in Hong Kong’s Central looking for a quick escape from the daily grind frequent L16 for the cafe’s set menus, with separate selections for each day of the week. Always keen for a theme to better present the pan-Asian capabilities wielded in the kitchen, L16 also has a set banqueting menu for two to eight people, plus menus focusing on afternoon tea, Thai and Japanese food. Flying the flag for Asian cuisine from the green and beating heart of Admiralty’s Hong Kong Park, L16 is a truly curatorial cafe.
Turning to L16’s two a la carte menus, Thai and Japanese, it’s notable that L16 understands the myriad conversations that national Asian cuisines are having amongst themselves. In this way you can find Thai-style beef and pork rubbing shoulders with their spicy and sympathetic Sichuan cousins. It’s a comfortable marriage that speaks fusion with the right degree of humility. This restaurant, tucked into Hong Kong Park just moments from Admiralty and the bustling action of Central, doesn’t need to trumpet it’s considered approach to pan-Asian cookery. Regular customers know that they can expect superlative food served in stylish surrounds here. Book a table and make your way to L16 (the closest main road is Cotton Tree Drive) and see for yourself.
Good food, nice view. I always come here becsuse I can have different choices of food. Thai, Japanese, Chinese. And it is located at central place, easy to move around after lunch if you have a meeting nearby
a cozy environment with nice view and setting. price is reasonable. Food is fine. Service is okay. Good choice for people workin in central or queensway.
The food is very good with an extensive menu, although the service was a little slow. This is understandable, however, as the restaurant was very busy on Sunday at lunchtime. Will go back for an evening meal.
Some dishes such as Hai Nan Chicken Rice are great. Reasonable value for the location. Comfortable outdoor dining area. Inside seating can be a bit squeezed.
I have been to L16 regularly. This time I sat towards the back of the restaurant and enjoyed the view of the waterfalls and lake in Hong Kong Park. The food had always been of good standard. This time I had the chirashi and it was good. The server had a little confusion over which dish to serve who but we sorted it out ourselves. Although L16 is not cheap, I think it's good value for money in the area.
I ordered the Pad Thai while my friend had the sashimi salad and the green curry with chicken. I tried the salad and my pad Thai as both were very tasty. The salad is very refreshing for the summer and the pad Thai had generous portions (and I still finished the whole thing!)
Nice place in the park, service was fine, food was average. A lot choices in the menu. Couldn't see the view outsides quite well as it was a night. Overall, recommended but if you wish to hang out until late, be aware that they close at 10pm.
Extensive menu which makes choosing difficult. The food was very tasty but delivered sporadically over a long period and we had to chase one dish they forgot. I was given a cracked glass which took a while to change.
Great location, nice ambiance, good food served very quickly. Only down side was a slightly 'old fashioned' service. I will certainly recommend this cafe to my friends.
Every thing was great, but some staff must have be given a training. In summer, guests are better sit indoor, because it was hot and dirty outdoor.
last night was my 5 th times visit in the pass 2 months. everything was kept in good condition, nice food, nice service and reasonable price.
food is good, facing the waterfall, very pleasant and nice. will definitely go back again. many variety, Japanese and thai and even Sichuan. a good choice
Delicious food , and good atmosphere, even though it was quite empty while we were there. Nice presentation of dishes, too, with beautiful Thai crockery.
The restaurant is getting better in terms of service, the food has always been great and hence I am feeling way better about this place.
Great Atmosphere, food was really good and client service was excellent. Was very pleased to see disabled staff- a huge step forward for Hong Kong.
Good enviroment, not bad cusine, however food a bit overpriced here. What should be improved - English, which is very, very poor. Selection of drinks also not very rich.
Nice environment in Hong Kong park, quiet and cozy for get-together. Food quality however to be improved, especially with less oil will be good. Still worth the deal.
service can be better if there are more waiters / waitresses. food is fine though a bit expensive. beware that most salad dishes are quite spicy actually.
Will consider customer's special requirement stated in Quandoo when reserving the table Can improve the service by looking around if any customer need help Overall: Good
Good deco, cozy, reasonbly priced food, handsome portion of wine, we had a great evening. Recommend this restaurant for those who like outdoor setting too
blue Monday. booking is unnecessary. wonderful place, nice food and good service. it is a good idea for a long shopping day or working day.
Very disappointing experience. Food servers wanted to deliver the food so quickly that it was dropped on the table as they walked past. Sweet and sour pork was not even cooked through so sent back. They heated in a microwave and reserved back to us. Pad thai was unbalanced with chilli, and cooked with msg; satay beef was salted meat, which was very over powering. Staff lacked experience and the most disappointing thing was they severed peanuts and kimchi when we first arrived. The kicker was they also charge you for it.
I booked a window-side table by the pool to meet my old colleague and was allocated with a window-side table by the road. Food was just up to standard.
Food good but service quality was only just about adequate. Our table was rather unsteady so we changed it to another. The chairs at both tables were uncomfortable, and the table so wide that it was hard to hear each other in conversation.
Service as others wrote bad, bad and bad. Food not good.. I requested the previous day for a quiet table but was given the noisiest one and food was poor by average standard, both of us ordered Japanese set lunch...
Generally, the food like Spring roll& jellyfish are not great! The bowl for rice and the cup for cold drinks are two small! More waiters needed!
Unfriendly and dismissive attitude towards reservation, as it was clealy stated there would be one wheelchair bound guest. Order was screwed up as waiter wasn't even trying to pay attention. Food was average at best. Not worth going there
I wrote down my special requests on the remarks. It seems like they didn't see it. And when I called to reconfirm my reservation, they don't understand much English!
Expensive food and nothing special at all. Really will not to come again. No service, no water refill, waiting for long time for the foods.
