Korean food is enjoying something of a moment of late in Hong Kong, and the hip, young vibe is no better exemplified anywhere than in U-Hang. This vibrant local eatery on Sai Ying Pun’s High Street is the epitome of achingly cool, minimalist restaurants, and with the University of Hong Kong’s campus just moments away, it comes as no surprise to find that U-Hang is fit to bursting with the city’s young, cool and beautiful.
The service at U-Hang is way beyond what you might expect for a place popular with students.
There’s no dilly-dallying here, instead, guests to the High Street eatery are greeted immediately with
a glass of cool water (or warm if it’s cold outside) and asked to choose from a short menu of Korean
delicacies. Those in Sai Ying Pun are heading over for Korean food that’s famously filling. Guests here
should know that picking some dishes to share is often a good move – we particularly like the scallop
pancakes. If you’re hungrier, there can be no competition for a serious bowl of bimimbap. This
Korean specialty - a hot stone pot filled with rice, kimchi, meat and vegetables and topped with an
egg that cooks in the pot as it arrives - is a firm favourite in Korea and beyond.
U-Hang is a U shaped restaurant, with its open kitchen facing out onto two rows of tables. The dining space itself is sparse but welcoming, and diners know it as a place to see and be seen among Hong Kong’s young and restless. Expect hipster-lite touches like bare lightbulbs and utilitarian, school classroom-style seating when you head down to U-Hang. For those looking for a taste of Korea in the city, as well as a hive of young people taking photos with their artfully arranged bulogi, you’re in the right place.
We really enjoyed our meal here. Our waiter was very attentive and made us feel settled straight away. The food was brilliant- although the menu isn't huge what we had was tasty and satisfying. The KFC style chicken was great in particular.
Great restaurant. Bulgogi tacos are delicious. Highly recommend for a casual dinner.
Love the korean fusion comfort food. Great atmosphere and food are delicious. Four of us and only $300 per head (drinks/wine inclused!) Good value for money!
The waiting staff were very helpful. Our particular recommendations were the KFC and the Bulgogi Tacos. A 'must visit' restaurant with a trendy vibe as the name suggests.
Saw the pancakes on Instagram and decided to come here for a nice Saturday brunch! Brunch is served from 12 to 3, definitely a non-pretentious, comfortable and quiet place! Egg Benedict with kimchi pork was unique and super well made, while I had the bacon pancakes - bit on the sweet side as I'm more a savoury person, though I must say the pancakes were amazing! Definitely will come back for another brunch/lunch/dinner! Super friendly staff too :)
Service was great , food was average . I expected the chicken wings to be spectacular because double fried Korean fried chicken is super popular. So when the chicken wings was served with the sauce in the side just made it plain. On the other hand the small bite chicken and seafood pancake along with the pulled pork sliders were pretty good . One advise , serve the chicken wings with the sauce , not on the side .
This was our first try of korean fusion restaurant. We love the roasted fish and seafood pancake. Both were perfect - not overcook and crispy. Messy slider mini burger was indulging. My friends loved the korean fried chicken which was not the usual kfc. Personally I would prefer it to be crispy. Overall we like the ambience and the food. Have a try.
A pleasant enough place and the staff are nice and the food decent. But was disappointed that there were no Korean dishes on the weekend lunch menu at all! We went there for the Korean food advertised on their online menu and they've changed it and taken everything Korean off the menu. And you can't even order from their regular menu. The only Korean thing was the chilli sauce we asked for to dip our fries in!
The staff were great and very attentive, always topping up our water as soon as we were done and making sure that we had everything we needed. The food was tasty as well, and Sapporo on tap is always a good thing!
Good quality of food, the short-ribs super tender, moist and juicy (must try) And the cocktails are really good too, i had a sangria and the bartender put a lot of effort to make it, not just mixing everything together
