Pizza travelled from London Soho to HK Soho!

The first PizzaExpress was opened in Soho, London in 1965. Coincidentally, in 2001 Hong Kong’s first PizzaExpress was opened in Soho, Central. It is always a great venue to catch up with friends. The food in general is up to standard according to its price.
Food rating: 3/10*
* Food Rating: 6/10 is equivalent to 1 Michelin star, 8/10 to two Michelin stars, and 9/10 or above to three Michelin stars
Chef Salad (2/10)
It was a refreshing salad; the salad has a mix variety of toppings, such as lettuce, black olive, eggs and chicken. It was served with a delicate dressing. Overall, it was definitely something light to suit the summer.
Peking Duck Pizza (4/10)
This was quite an innovative pizza mixing the traditional Chinese cuisine with Italian cuisine. The pizza was based with peking duck sauce and the duck breast slices were placed on top of the pizza before it is ovened. The pizza was thin and taste exactly like the peking duck, the breast was tender. Not a bad blend of the 2 cuisines.
Spicy pork sausage farfalle (3/10)
The farfalle was slight over cooked, but taste was alright. However, I think too much chilli flakes were use, the pasta was over power by the spiciness of the chilli flake. The pasta wasn’t spicy, but probably was the spiciest Italian food I have ever ate.
In general, PizzaExpress does produce a lot of classic pasta and pizza, they are not a bad choice for a taste of Italy. However, diners need to be very careful for their innovation, not every single dishes work out.
Give me a thumbs up if you like it!

Great lunch for 10
hinton1972 (57 Review(s))
Great lunch for 10 of us in their 'new' environment......which didn't look a whole heap different than before.
Staff - very attentive.
Food - good as always - kids meals three pizza and one pasta were all quick to the table and were adorned as they should. La Reine pizza always gets my boy's vote. The pasta was nice and creamy too. Adults meals included two pizzas, both Amatriciana, both covered with ham and basil. Three pastas - seafood, cannelloni and carbonara. Pastas were all good and the extra requested fresh chilli in the carbonara was perfectly hot.
Kids desserts, ice-cream and one cake, were all quick and were eaten just as quickly.
Environment - great location and good to watch the world go by outside.
Food and drinks - quick and tasting as it should.
Do I like Pizza Express? ....... Yes....I think it is a great dining experience with great pizza and always amazingly consistent on taste. Probably my favourite franchise in Hong Kong.
Always worth a visit and always worth booking so you aren't disappointed.

Pretty good pizza, but not worth what it costs
mjhk (122 Review(s))
I came here on the recommendation of one of my fellow expat Americans, who told me it was "pretty good pizza," and I guess in the end I'll agree with that assessment.
Quite predictably, I had the American pizza-- specifically, the Napolitano style American Hot pizza, which comes with Hungarian pepperoni and jalapenos. My two favorite toppings are pepperoni and jalapenos, so there you go. Here's an overly elaborate break-down:
Crust: The crust was my favorite part. It was firm and crisp, yet still a little chewy. Probably a little too chewy as it seemed a little undercooked on top. Still, good. 8/10
Sauce: Sweet, but not too sweet, distributed moderately. 7/10
Cheese: Not bad but nothing to write home about. Not fresh mozzarella, and a little on the greasy side. It also had a tendency to fall off the crust, taking all the toppings with it. 6/10
Pepperoni: A little too fancy for my taste. They give you a fair amount of pepperoni, which is a good thing, but the pepperoni is pretty greasy. I know that's a general hazard of pepperoni, but that's why I like thin-sliced pepperoni, which has less grease and gets nice and crispy in the oven. This was, well, some greasy sausage slices on a pizza. I think we're supposed to be impressed that it's from Hungary. 6/10
Jalapenos: Canned/ jarred as you might expect. There were only about 10 or so on the whole pizza. They could've used a rinsing, because they imparted a very pickley flavor to the pizza. Despite the fact that this was the 'American Hot' pizza, there was no hint of spice in the jalapenos (or anywhere else for that matter). You can get hotter pizza by sprinkling red chili flakes on it. 4/10
Overall: Decent pizza, but a tad too greasy. I paid $180 for the pizza + ice tea, and it wasn't worth it. It was just pizza I'd have been satisfied to get in New York, but with a fancy-pants pretense about it like shredded mozzarella and canned jalapenos were gourmet. You can sort of tell just by looking at the patrons that its the sort of place you go to pay more than its worth. I think next time I have a craving I'll just catch a slice at Ebeneezer's. 7/10

our new comfort restaurant
好食到彭彭聲 (766 Review(s))
One funny fact about my family is that we have actually never eaten at Pizza Express, despite its proximity and our frequency in walking pass it. Pizza Express is, to us, a place that we will always forget when searching for a place to eat comfortably near home - and last sunday we finally got the chance to actually try it out.
We walked in and easily got a table. Opening and reading the menu, we were amazed by the price of the food - they are actually cheaper than what we have always been anticipating for! We quickly settled for:
Appetizer: a grilled ham and cheese mushroom:
a 4/5 - the mushroom was quite tender and juicy, but the lack of seasoning made it a bit bland in taste. The ham and cheese was alright, but the cheese could have been stronger. All in all, a good dish for 3-4 to share.
Salad: one small chicken caesar and one small tomato with mozzarella salad
Both came with the signature dough bread which tasted like chewy bagel holes. The tomato and mozarella salad was alright, but the portion was a little too small. as for the caesar i'd rather have the dressing pre-mixed with the veggies for the sauce was really thick; but the taste was alright, except for the annoying lukewarmness of the dressing. id always prefer icy cold dressing over lukewarm ones.
Mains: pizza with mushroom and truffle oil
a true delight - 5/5! at the first bite you tasted the amazing sweetness of the black truffle oil - the mushroom toppings were alright, but i felt the cheese was not enough. but the truffle oil had worked as a catalyst and the one-and-only stimulant to the taste buds - without it this pizza would just be another which i would put aside and not fall in love with.
Spaghetti with meat sauce
3/5 - shockingly similar to the local version served at chaa chen tangs. the sauce was really thick. the pasta was too round for me. all in all, this is not something that should have appeared in a restaurant like this.
In general - an economical and satisfying place to dine. im sure that my family and i would come again and again - and im going to order the peking duck pizza next time i visit!

At first I didn't really want to come here.... there didn't seem to be many people even during lunch hour, a sign that it might not be good? Also, I wanted to have asian food but I let my friend decide.
Looking at the menu, there was a 'festive lunch set' but for two courses at 150 without service and such limited choice, I could have done much better in other restaurants upper soho.
In the end, I ordered:
salmon leggera pizza
The mushroom soup came with a large drizzle of truffle oil....after mixing it in and tasting it, it didn't taste of truffle at all...just wild mushrooms..... NOT worth $50
The pizza took a long time than I expected, especialy since other people seated after me had already been served their pizzas....
ANYWAY the verdict of the pizza?
ACCEPTABLE in taste, but not worth it for $110. This came nothing like the picture. Yes there was a whole with salad in the middle and drizzles with a reasonable balsamic, but the pizza itself was not that special. It could have used more smoked salmon, cherry tomatoes, zucchini etc. The pizza looked like a very thing piece of bread baked with a very thin layer of pizza sauce and a couple slices of salmon CUT in thirds and very thin layer of cheese. You would think that for this little amount of ingredients used plus the uninspired taste, it should only cost half of the regular pizzas.... i.e. under $70...
Would recommend DaddyOs for pizzas rather than here....
I ate 3 slices and left the others as they got cold....
