Uptop Bistro & Bar

 
We are always on the lookout for restaurants offering rooftop dining, preferably with views of the city from interesting vantage points. Uptop Bistro & Bar, located on the top floor and the entire roof terrace of Popway Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, across from the Hong Kong Museum of History, offers just that. Though only 20 floors up, the views from the restaurant are pleasantly unimpeded. At night, you are bathed in the city lights glittering above and all around – it's a sight to behold!
 
The restaurant serves international cuisines with an occasional infusion of Chinese cuisine, a reflection of the city's rich culinary diversity. We were there to try the “Jewels at Uptop” Set Dinner ($398/person), a five-course menu that signalled 'value for money' from the get-go.
 
The dinner starts with Japanese Abalone with Crab Roe Salad, with the abalone braised Japanese style. The soup is a choice of Clam Chowder Soup or Watercress Soup with Grissini, which is refreshing and nutritious. The next course is Pan-fried Crab Cake with Passion Fruit Mayonnaise: several different crab meats minced together to enhance the meat flavour – a really nice treat.
For the main course, we chose Baked Duck Breast & Seared Scallops with Mango Salsa – a refreshing combination; Baked US Lobster Tail & Baked Oyster in Bacon Cream Sauce – the lobster tail is succulent; or US Rib Eye Steak with New Potato Chips & Baked Tomato with Mozzarella (Add $68) – both the steak and the new potatoes are excellent.
 
The dinner ends with a choice of three desserts: Green Tea Ice Cream with Japanese Azuki & Strawberry Puff; Homemade Tiramisu; or Fruit Platter with Cointreau Sauce – all tasty.
 
The restaurant serves beer, wines and cocktails, with a daily happy hour from 4 to 9pm, featuring excellent discounts.
 
Uptop also offers the “Urban Glamping” Afternoon Tea Set ($368/ two persons) that is chock-full of savoury items, pastries, and sweets. It’s a delightful way to while away a relaxing afternoon.
 
If you are in the mood for an intimate dinner or just want to relax over drinks while enjoying panoramic views of the city, check out Uptop Bistro & Bar!
