You know the drill: it’s past noon and you’re starving – that sandwich you had earlier did absolutely nothing for you. You want something filling to last you through till dinner, and you want something mind-blowingly delicious, but what you don’t want is to spend an unreasonable amount and burn a bigger hole in your pocket than you already have. No worries –

Located on Wyndham Street, Wagyu does three-course set lunches including tea, coffee or a soft drink at $170. Although famous for their Australian flame-grilled steak, those not in the mood for a heavy lunch will not be disappointed with their lighter main course offerings.

Unit 3, G/F Centrium Building, 60 Wyndham Street, Central

Available from midday to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday

3. La Rotisserie

Image title

To be fair you probably know about this one, but it is just so good we can’t leave it off the list. Tried, tested and very much approved by the Foodie team, La Rotisserie serves up a lunch set with a quarter roast chicken, a side dish and either homemade soup or iced tea, all for a smart sum of $72. More of a takeaway place than a sit down restaurant, a La Rotisserie lunch is the ideal choice for a quick and no-hassle meal.

33 Hillier Street, Sheung Wan

71 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun

19 Amoy Street, Wan Chai

Available from 12 to 2:30 p.m., Monday to Friday

4. Viet Kitchen

A set lunch at Viet Kitchen will set you back a modest $98 with your choice of a starter and a main, including their signature pho and Banh Mi sandwich – perfect for satisfying your Vietnamese food cravings without breaking the bank. We think this is some of the tastiest Vietnamese in Hong Kong, so it is a delight to be able to enjoy it all times of the day for less than $100.

G04 & 06 Nexxus Building, 41 Connaught Road, Central.

Available from 12 to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday

5. Doppio Zero

This Italian restaurant, at the ground floor of The Pemberton is the go-to place for a hearty pasta fix. Priced between $138 and $188, choose from a selection of appetisers, pastas or other mains and drinks, plus you get the dessert of the day. The menu is quite extensive for a simple set lunch, meaning there’s something for everybody.

G/F, The Pemberton, 22 Bonham Strand, Sheung Wan

Available from 12 to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday

6. Blue Butcher

Brought to you from the streets of NYC is the restaurant’s famed Butcher and Fries lunch set: for $180, dig into a cold starter buffet, your main course of choice which includes dry-aged grain-fed USDA rib eye and BBQ beef brisket, and all-you-can-eat fries.

108 Hollywood Road, Central

Available from 12 to 2:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday

7. Seoul Bros

Image title

Opposite Ho Lee Fook is where you will find the entrance to Seoul Bros, whose goal is to mimic the street food of Korea with international twists sold at prices unheard of in Central. A set of banh mi, fries, corn and soda will set one back $78, and chicken with Sapporo draft beer a tidy $88.

G/F, 66 Hollywood Road, Central


8. Wa San Mai

Image title

A little out of the way unless you happen to work within the Causeway Bay area, Wa San Mai is worth the 10-minute-or-less MTR ride you’ll take to get there. The lunch sets, which start at $130 and include a salad, either udon or soba, appetisers and miso soup (and just an extra $10 for a scoop of their house made ice cream), are definitely all great value for the money.

22/F, East Point Centre, 555 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay

9. Lily & Bloom

Image title

They take lunch very seriously over at Lily & Bloom: priced at $168, indulge in their soup of the day and dessert, and hack your way through the salad, seafood, mac ‘n’ cheese and carving stations in between. Prepare to be very, very stuffed, but also exhilaratingly happy.

5/F and 6/F LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham Street, Central

Available from 12 to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday

10. Burger Circus

Image title

$88 of your finest dollars will entitle you to a USDA Prime three-way chuck 5oz burger and house-made soda at Burger Circus. Located just off the escalators on Hollywood Road, it’s a convenient place to spend a lunch hour or drop in quickly and grab a take away. We are also huge fans of their pumpkin pie which is running for the special autumn season. Eat much pie.

Open 11:30am til late, seven days a week
