Having already made a name for itself around the Western District, The Pierside is taking Hong Kong by storm with its succulent steaks and fresh, delicious seafood delights. Clean and bright, the interior of this popular Western restaurant is fun and colourful, boasting a relaxed ambience that’s inviting while stylish at the same time. Steak lovers can’t get enough – on The Pierside’s menu, you’ll have choices like charcoal-grilled Australian rib eye, a 200g cut of US Angus beef, or a US Prime flatiron steak. Seafood lovers can enjoy the daily fish fillet served with fries and homemade pickles, or the decadent lobster with pasta. The menu changes often, so you’ll want to swing by this charming restaurant periodically to see what’s new. The Pierside can be found on the ground floor of the Grand Fortune Mansion on Kennedy Town’s Davis Street – book ahead to hop on board.
Pretty attentive service, spoke good English, could offer alternative sides to the standard side of fries, kept topping up the water glass without asking, allowed you to sit for a longer time and not hint for you to leave by clearing your plate the second you finished, allowed sharing of a main soup order by splitting it into 2 for you. Lobster Thermidor was tasty but small. Lobster roll was also tasty with a nice crusty brioche that was well-buttered but would have been more satisfying if there were bigger lobster chunks for the price paid. Side salad was very plain - just mixed greens with olive oil - could have done better. Didn't offer the bread roll if you didn't order set lunch - other tables had it but we didn't.
The steak here is amongst the best I've had in Hong Kong - you have to go to a seriously expensive steakhouse to top their offering here. It's our go-to steakhouse. The ribeye is $1/gram and you can order it in three different sizes, the 600g one being good for sharing. They also have a very good, and fairly priced, wine list.
