That should be in Junk Bay Tony, I was last there in 2008 but didnt get to Junk Bay so Dont know if it still excists, Hong Kong has changed so much over the last few years it is hard to recognise it.
Cheers

You could be right there John, i read on Wikipedia a Resteraunt there that was there many years had to close because of staffing problems.
