Hong Kong’s art scene has expanded rapidly in the last few years. Where once there was no international art event of repute, now the city plays host to the likes of Art Basel, Affordable Art Fair, Ink Asia, not to mention local events like Art Central and HK Walls. Hong Kong’s restaurant scene has kept pace, too, and a number of excellent restaurants are now as good as some galleries, offering up not just good food but exquisite art on the side. Here are the best.

Carbone

Carbone

Carbone Get me there {{title}} {{taRatingReviewTotal}} {{taRatingReviewText}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info is an extension of Mario Carbone’s New York restaurant and is run by the chef’s cousin, Louie Carbone. The clubby, leather and brass decked retro dining room looks like something straight out of The Godfather, with waiters decked out in pressed tuxedos. Decorating the walls is an array of snazzy and eye-catching contemporary art collected for the restaurant by curator Vito Schnabel. Enjoy it and your veal parmesan and meatballs.

Duddell’s

Mott 32 Get me there {{title}} {{taRatingReviewTotal}} {{taRatingReviewText}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info may not be for lovers of paintings or sculpture, but fans of architecture and interior design will find much to admire in this restaurant housed inside a former bank vault. Stark Chinese decorations are found throughout the venue, like a giant abacus which hangs above a long table and the wall of Chinese calligraphy pens in a private dining room, and offer contrast to the western design elements like Mott’s filament bulbs. It’s a beguiling mix, so much so it won World Interior of the Year at Singapore’s Inside Festival in 2014. The food is excellent too — the restaurant is renowned for serving arguably the best char siu in all Hong Kong.

Based on a whimsical 'Japonisme' theme — a French term that refers to the popularity of Japanese art and design among Western European artists in the 19th century — expect to see plenty of ukiyo-e prints, impressionist paintings and first-edition books in the mix.
