Whether you’re craving a 4AM kebab after a big night out at the clubs or just hungry for a midnight snack, these restaurants are open late, late, late
In a city that never truly sleeps, it’s harder than you think to find a place to eat when your tummy grumbles in the wee hours of the morning. Whether you’re craving some Mexican food, Japanese food or in dire need of a cheeky snack after partying at these Hong Kong clubs, these late-night restaurants in Hong Kong are still open in the small hours.
Here are our picks for late-night restaurants in Hong Kong
If you’re looking for late-night restaurants in Hong Kong that do it up right, then Employees Only should be on your hit list. This Singapore-born hot spot serves its dinner menu until 3:30am, Monday-Sunday, so if you’ve hit the sauce a little hard, they’ll pull you back from the brink with their signature Grilled Cheese, Baked Macaroni or a simple double helping of Parmesan Fries. Many an evening has ended here in the capable hands of the EO staff (we salute you!)
Employees Only, 19 Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong
Tsui Wah is the biggest cha chaan teng chain in Hong Kong. There are more than a few branches, but only a handful are open 24-hours, and the Wellington Street outpost is where clubbers drop by after a night out at Lan Kwai Fong. If you’re there for post-clubbing bites, you’ll do well with the Kagoshima Style Pork Cartilage with Tossed Instant Noodles or Swiss Sauce Chicken Wings. If you’re there for early morning breakfast, must-tries are their milk tea paired by crispy bun and condensed milk. Definitely one of our fave late-night restaurants in Hong Kong.
Ebeneezer’s Kebab and Pizzeria
If you haven’t already made a trip to one of the best late-night restaurants in Hong Kong, then you are missing out on an institution! Ebeneezer’s has branches across the city and many serve up until 6am, including the little branch in LKF. Grab a kebab and continue the party with the rest of the late-night revellers.

Do rounds of tapas and sangria sound like your perfect Saturday night? Then Elia should be your choice for late-night dining. The contemporary Spanish restaurant has stunning views over Victoria Harbour and is open until 3AM, so that’s plenty of time to munch on morsels like their Salmon Tartare and Royal Prawns. Make sure you work your way down their extensive cocktail list and definitely give their El Destructo cocktail a try. Late-night restaurants in Hong Kong don’t get any better.

The Flying Pan
Whether you’re in dire need of a fry-up to soak up all that boozing or just hungry for breakfast at all hours of the day, there’s no denying that diner food is the ultimate late-night bite. Luckily, The Flying Pan is open for 24-hours to satisfy all those cravings. Order classic diner food like grilled cheese sandwiches with all the works and sugar-loaded pancakes fresh off the griddle to eggs done any way you want them. For an extra twist, get a Buzzshake just for kicks – big kid milkshakes with a splash of rum, Kahlua, amaretto or whiskey. Oh, yes.
The Flying Pan, G/F 9 Old Bailey Street, Central, Hong Kong, p. 2140 6333, 中環蘇豪奧卑利街9號地下
When you’re hungry for a post-drinks snack, there’s nothing better than bang-on burgers. Luckily, Burger Circus, a classic 1950s American diner complete with old-school uniforms, vinyl stools, illustrations of pin-up girls and a retro soundtrack to boot, is open late on Fridays and Saturdays. Order up their Maytag Blue, a juicy beef burger with blue cheese, bacon and onions, alongside jalapeno poppers and tater tots made with Velveeta cheese and Circus sauce. Don’t forget a spiked shake to keep that buzz going.

4AM taco for your post-clubbing cravings? Cali Mex’s LKF location is open until 5AM on Fridays and Saturdays, and up to 2AM every other day except Sunday. Grab fast-food Tex-Mex in the form of build-your-own burritos, quesadillas, and nachos – and maybe even doggy-bag some extra plates to bring home for the after-party. Tequila shots not included.
Sun Hing Restaurant
When it comes to late-night restaurants, this is a winner. With opening hours that start from 3AM to 4PM, there’s no surprise that Sun Hing Restaurant tends to be teeming with nearby university students taking a break from an all-nighter and the very drunk crowd. Still, this divey dim sum joint happens to dish up some of the best budget-friendly dimsum in town. Try their deep fried milk, our ultimate guilty pleasure, and their amazing egg yolk custard buns. Thank us later.
