Peking food at the American Restaurant

The American Restaurant in Wanchai (map) has been a long-standing traditional restaurant that many locals and tourists dine at for the best food in the city. Don’t be discouraged by its name, American Restaurant opened post-World War II and is famed for its authentic Pekingese food.


As the years pass, American Restaurant is one of the rare places in Hong Kong that still remains unchanged and going strong. It is probably the only restaurant in Hong Kong that my whole family, from my grandparents to my niece, has frequented many times. Often overflowing with loud patrons, it’s definitely a well-celebrated restaurant where people come to eat morning, afternoon and night. It’s open daily from 11am to 11pm (last call) and if you have a big party, you can call in advance to make reservations. It’s very busy during the holiday season but throughout the year it still receives a lot of business, so don’t hesitate to ring them before going.

The food is absolutely excellent at American Restaurant. There is an English menu so don’t worry about not knowing what to order. Dishes are shared between people and range between HKD70 to 300 depending on the size. The staff is always very helpful with making recommendations so you won’t have a hard time. A couple dishes I highly recommend are the Szechuan sizzling chili prawns and the barbecued Peking duck (about HKD295).

If you’re looking for a delicious and affordable restaurant to visit while in Hong Kong, American Restaurant should definitely be you top choice.

    It’s great to know this place is still there. I grew up in HK more than 20 years ago and my family would eat here regularly.
