The last time we went to Top Deck must have been over 2 years ago, it used to be a regular thing on the list when visitors were in town, but after the last visit we decided it was a little tired and the food quality had gone down….BUT we decided to give it another try on Sunday and were pleasantly surprised…what a difference!!!
Food – The quality has improved so much that I found myself wanting to try a little of everything. Starting with oysters, prawns and crab claw which were all chilled, fresh and tasty. Moving onto sashimi which although it wasn’t cut very nicely was good quality. Salads and cold meats were all tasty without too much dressing. Moved onto the hot section, the roast lamb was incredible, really tasty and super tender. Veggies were crunchy. Duck was beautifully roasted. Spring rolls…we’ll leave that for dim sum as they were pretty tasteless. Finishing with eggs benedict which was very tasty, the muffin was still crisp and the egg runny which is impressive for a buffet. Lastly the deserts, I tried a little of everything and wasn’t disappointed, chocolate crepe was yum.
Atmosphere – Busy Sunday as always, sometimes forgetting you’re in Hong Kong with all the westerners there. It’s not the sort of place you would go if you want a quiet relaxing Sunday brunch, but for good food, high energy atmosphere and great location you can’t beat it in Hong Kong. Make sure you have for a shaded table, unless you want to get a sun tan while you’re eating. I should point out, you can go there for a really pleasant and quiet lunch/dinner on any other day, just that Sunday’s are packed.
Service – What an improvement, we always had a full glass of bubbly, plates were cleaned away swiftly and the staff were really aware of our needs. I would say that our glasses were probably filled up too often, but who is going to complain about being served too much free bubbly…
Price – Compared to all the other Sunday brunches popping up in Hong Kong, this one is still very good value for money.
A great way to spend a Sunday with family and friends, we’ll be back!
