    Returning expat

    Hi all,

    I used to live in HK from 88 to 97 and I'm returning with family for the first time in July. I'm trying to remember places i used to love and am wondering if they're still good and/or in existance, such as ...

    Jo Jo's in Wanchai
    Chilli Club in Wanchai
    Kublai's, Wanchai
    Chinese restaurant at the top of Windsor House, Causeway Bay
    Chinese restaurant at the top of the Macau Ferry Terminal (? Shun Tak Centre)
    Japanese restaurant in LKF
    Korean restaurant just off Gloucester Road

    Can anyone recommend the best places (i'm thinking hotels) for afternoon tea, lunch buffet and dinner buffet. Used to go to the Conrad, but not sure if it's still good.

    I thought Jo Jo moved to a new location? I think I saw the sign on top of Mes Amis or in that vicinity.

    Khublais closed recently.

    Jo Jo's of Wanchai re-opened above the Typhhon bar which for the the last few years was the Groovy Mule on the corner of Lockhart Road and Fenwick Street.

    I can highly recommend Sunday brunch buffet at The Verandah at the Repulse Bay. Great food, champagne and service, not to mention fabulous views. Also the lunch buffet at Harbourside restaurant, Intercontinental in TST, is good.
