Wu Kong Shanghai Restaurant

Times Square 12th Floor - Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Oddly enough, if you eat during what I call normal hours - 7pm for dinner, for example - you'll get a table. However, once it hits 8pm, good luck getting into the lineup. This restaurant is that busy for good reason - the tableware is fancy yet the ambience relaxed and casual, you can bring in a large group and have a good time, and the Shanghainese food concotions are quite unique, while the not-so-unique dishes (ie. the Shanghai Baby Pork Dumplings) are bustling with flavour. Portions are average and the prices are a bit on the higher end, but still well within the student splurging price. Best if you go with a large group, since you can try out more dishes such as the Egg Sauteed Shrimp, Crispy Turnip Cake, and the delicious Golden Korean Puff Ball dessert.

Conclusion: If you're prepared to pay a tad more without breaking the bank, and you eat during normal hours, this is a place to go.
