The Hong Kong and Singaporean dining scenes have always been closely interconnected, with many popular restaurants boasting venues in both cities. For those in the know though, there has always been one anomaly - the successful No Signboard Seafood restaurant chain that not only has outlets all over Singapore, but also in Jakarta and Macau.
Finally, Hong Kong has been blessed with its own No Signboard Seafood outlet, which opened in Causeway Bay's dining hotspot in early May.
With a rags-to-riches story, No Signboard is perfect for Hong Kong, with tasty no-frills street food served up by trained smart-looking servers in stylish surroundings. The offerings include white pepper crab, chilli crab, double-boiled lobster and deep-fried butter chicken, served in a minimalist white space featuring glass, stainless steel, and Philippe Starck Louis Ghost chairs.
The restaurant is a perfect venue for business meals with visiting clients, with formality and informality in balance. For example, there are live fish tanks next to the hostess stand where servers in suits meet and greet diners. There's also an appealing al fresco area, which is great for a spot of fresh air during a working lunch. While Hong Kong is bursting with seafood restaurants, one can never have too many, and No Signboard Seafood is a welcome addition to the dining scene.
