“It’s packed here every day - expats and locals come to have a good time, 7 days a week! We’re a bit of an institution and are known for our signature dishes - like the garlic chicken and razor clams, but most of all people come to see me. They come to let loose and have fun. I started this restaurant 30 years ago with a few friends. Over the years I’ve made a lot of good friends, both in the neighbourhood and all over the world. Before this I worked for many years in the F&B industry - restaurants, discos, hotels…and before that I was an actor. I love to perform and I even got an award for best supporting actor! That was many years ago now.”
“I’ve seen many things over the years and learned a lot by trial and error. When you first start a business or start in a new industry, you will no doubt run into roadblocks and make lots of mistakes. But that’s how you learn. No mistakes, no learning. I’m lucky to have some great partners running this with me - we met many years ago working in the F&B industry and are like brothers. The pandemic was tough for us; I sold all my properties to try and keep it going. It is stressful but this is a very special place and I want to continue to bring happiness to Hong Kong people, and to keep dancing!”
“I’m still a performer and entertainer at heart, so you’ll often see me doing the splits or doing the moonwalk as I’m working. I work hard but I play even harder. I love to dance and I love to laugh; it makes me happy and it makes people around me happy. Why make things boring when it can be fun? By the way, what do you think of my outfit? I customised the boots myself - they look much better like this. It’s so trendy, it’s almost French style. I’m turning 60 next year but I’m still young at heart. Having dabbled in show business I have quite a few celebrity friends…and they come here to support me too. I love music, especially the oldies. That’s why I always have the hits playing at the restaurant. Leslie Chueng is a legend and my favourite. Wait, you need to see me open a beer bottle with a single chopstick - it’s my signature trick!”
