Stopped by for dinner last weekend. Food choices were good and the food quality was excellent. Everything was served quickly but with style and attention to details. Kudos to the team last Saturday - service was excellent and very friendly. I will be back for sure.

I have stayed at the Mandarin Oriental once or twice a year over the last twelve years and I have regularly used Cafe Causette over that time. I really want to complement the management on the improvements they have made in recent years. At one time, the Cafe seemed a little tired. The old yellow menu books were lengthy but... More

Came here at lease once a week for mostly dinner. The service is good with fast service, so don't worry if you are starving! My favourite drink here is an Oriental Supreme. I have tried several dishes from Asian to European, my favourite is Hainan chicken rice.

I went there in nov/ dec. Like some complaints, I agreed Service was slow and had to get attentions of servers and food menu is limited. I had the Wan Tan noodle soup and the dumplings had too much fatty meats to my likings and the broth didn't fare any better. I didn't even bother with deserts or coffee. Seems... More

Took a late lunch here today. Was seated immediately - partly due to the duty manager recognising me who happened to be in the vicinity. I can highly recommend the lobster bisque and the Mandarin Club Sandwich. Very tasty and very filling. It was difficult to get the attention of the waitress for drinks and the bill but continuing endeavours... More

We used it often for breakfast and on occasion for lunch. Never disappointing. Services professional and attentive. Food quality excellent. One can buy well-made sandwiches and take it on the road.

I just had a quick lunch at Cafe Causette in Mandarin Oriental Hotel. I waited for 10 minutes and received no service at all. I finally got a waitress and order a Laksa.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
