Whether you’re planning that special meal out with friends, a big family celebration or an important business dinner with clients, it’s important to choose a restaurant that offers a great group dining experience.
Location and easy to find venues in the heart of Hong Kong’s central district is key to a great group dining venue. Other things to consider is that the restaurant can accommodate everyone comfortably and cater to everybody’s appetites. The best group restaurants mean a comfortable vibe, a diverse menu and easy to get to location.
Making Sure Everyone is Happy
One of the most difficult tasks can be finding a restaurant that offers something to satisfy a group’s different food preferences; if several members of your part are vegetarian you probably won’t want to eat in a steak house. The best option is to pick a restaurant that offers a wide and varied selection of drinks and dishes that is likely to have something for everyone to enjoy. If the kitchen has seasonal dishes and the chef can make changes still using the best produce then the experience can be even more memorable.
Excellent food is, of course, a vital ingredient for a memorable and successful group dining experience, but don’t forget that a restaurant’s décor, atmosphere and standards of service all play a part in ensuring that everyone in your party has a great time.

Creative, contemporary cuisine and an impressive wine list are bringing discerning foodies to Elgin Street’s latest new restaurant. Soho, Central, Hong Kong welcomes 12000 Francs – an exciting new eatery and wine bar from the owners of popular Madam Sate restaurant.
From the award-winning Woolly Pig Concepts team, and a sister to their already popular Madam Sate restaurant, 12000 Francs centres on the theme of food preservation. A menu that boasts a fine selection of European dishes with a thoroughly contemporary twist is underpinned by modern and traditional preservation techniques including pickling, potting, salting and smoking.
Innovative takes on dishes such as Duck Rillette, Short Rib Beef Pastrami, Bonito Tartare and Roast Suckling Pig are already winning acclaim from Hong Kong’s budding gastronomes, whilst the emphasis on the use of seasonal ingredients means that diners can expect to be delighted by different menu additions throughout the year.
Using quality ingredients, every element of the menu is created from scratch, including accompaniments such as the restaurant’s in-house baked sourdough bread; reportedly one of the best breads to be found in Hong Kong today. And, as you’d expect of a restaurant of this calibre, the service and hospitality are of the same high standard, whether you’re visiting 12000 Francs for lunch, dinner or to sample some of its delicious snacks.
1200 Francs combines sophisticated dining, elegant surroundings and a relaxed atmosphere
However, there’s more than just great food and service at this new restaurant. Soho, Central, Hong Kong offers residents and visitors a choice of wine bars, but 12000 Francs squarely aims to be a cut above the rest. The elegant yet relaxing bar offers an enviable, 80-strong wine list that leans towards New World wines and includes a selection of some that are a little more difficult to find elsewhere. Working directly with wine producers and boutique importers enables the restaurant to offer significantly better wine value than many other restaurants in Central. Many wines can be enjoyed by the glass as well as the bottle, and 12000 Francs’ communal “Sommelier’s Table” – which remains open past midnight – is perfect for social gatherings and post-work meet ups. As is expected of a modern European wine bar of this standard, patrons are also offered a generous selection of aperitifs, spirits and cocktails to choose from.
Drinks, meals and snacks can be enjoyed in elegant yet unpretentious surroundings created by award-winning interior designer Emma Maxwell. A softly-lit, tasteful décor with stylistic nods to the Napoleonic era creates a refined yet informal dining environment that belies the cutting-edge gastronomy showcased by this new restaurant in Soho, Central, Hong Kong.
