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
1. Tsui Wah
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.
This place operates until 00:30 and is absolutely one of the best vegetarian restaurants for night owls. Serving an array of comfort food such as Wasabi Cheeseballs, Ratatouille Pizza and Pumpkin Creamy Barley Risotto, 2DP is a spacious vegetarian hangout in Tsim Sha Tsui where you can dig into delicious guilt-free dishes. Not only do they make amazing hot food, but their desserts like Cinnamon-sugar Filling Rice Pancakes and Shaved Ice with Watermelon and Pineapple are equally outstanding. Make sure to try their iconic cold brewed iced tea packed with refreshing fruits.

9. 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.

When it comes to authentic Japanese pork ramen, Ichiran is definitely a popular spot for night owls. Open until 3am, Ichiran makes one of the most succulent pork ramen with distinctive tonkotsu broth and uses original spicy red sauce. To order, simply circle your preference on the customisation sheet and hand it to the staff behind the curtain. Since you don’t have to interact with anyone, there will be no concerns for your melted makeup or drunk face at midnight.
Ichiran has branches in Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui.

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.
