Expert review of HK Diner
A favourite with London’s Chinese expat community, HK Diner stays open until 4am to welcome clubbers and other night owls with hearty food and cheesy Hong Kong pop music.
Most come for the roast duck and pork, which hang glistening in the front window ready to be served with gravy over nourishing plates of rice. The stir-fries and set meals are a bit so-what; better is to look at the specials list and homely claypot and noodle dishes. There’s a seemingly decent range of bubble teas advertised but whether or not a flavour is available when you ask for it is another matter.
Smart curved wooden booths add a touch of privacy, or sit at the counter for a diner vibe.
Sometimes friendly, sometimes disinterested or grumpy, but reliably fast-moving.
Close to Leicester Square, Shaftesbury Avenue and Piccadilly Circus – great after the theatre or cinema.
Main courses start at £5 a plate, and there are bottles of wine around a tenner.
