Honbo frontage. Possibly more famous than the burgers.

Honbo is near the Star Street entertainment precinct in Wan Chai and it's a laid back burger joint with hip interiors and an attractive shopfront. Honbo is a unique burger offering in Hong Kong.

Honbo (Wan Chai)

Honbo has a variety of gourmet burgers besides beef and they all come with their Signature Potato Milk Bun. They also have a range of local brews.

How to order

  1. Scallop burger
  2. Softshell burger

Their prices can be on the higher side so add it to plan if you are trying to impress. Perfectly suited for a date or if you are visiting the Star Street area.

Scallop burger


Inside, Honbo is cosy but neatly laid out so it feels spacious. There is a communal table and there are bar stool seating that line one of the walls. At the very front, there are seats by the large open window.

What the reviewers are saying

I'm not even a burger person but Honbo has had me sold. Their seafood burgers are some of the best burgers I've had in Hong Kong ...
