I was missing food from HK and Google recommended me Hotspot Central -- it was a lovely place with clean and elegant interior design. The service was absolutely 10/10, they were kind and friendly. My phone was running out of battery and they kindly charged my phone for me and even lent me a charger so that I could use my phone at the table (for work). There was also free Wi-Fi , allowing me to send a few emails while waiting for the food, which didn't take long at all too! Food-wise, I tried the stir-fried beef horfun, spicy chili wanton and bubble tea. The first dish was delicious, albeit a bit too oily for me. Chili wanton was slightly disappointing as it was not spicy at all but with the majority of Asian restaurants overseas, they are diluted and suited to Dutch taste preferences. It was still yummy. Unfortunately, the bubble tea was absolutely disgusting. I was so excited when I saw the option, as they even named it after a famous bubble tea chain in HK. However, the tea was extremely sweet (from someone who usually takes 100% bubble tea) and the pearls were totally wrong. They were not chewy at all, was just mushy when you bite into it and the whole drink was just not okay. I forced myself to drink a few mouths but had to discard the whole drink away.. what a shame. Overall, I still liked the restaurant and would go back again to try other foods, when I'm craving for HK foods again.

De plek is een streling voor je smaakpapillen zeker als je aan de gastvrouw verteld wat je wel en niet lekker vind. Verrassende gerechten uit Azië en speciaal China. ook hebben zij een bijzonder lekkere IPA van Nederlands-fabricaat op de tap namelijk Lowlander IPA. Echt een aanrader voor wie goed gezond en lekker uit eten wil gaan.

This is an excellent restaurant. Staff are amazing. They explain the menu so well and the dishes and combinations of ingredients are divine! My favourite was the lamb and cumin dish and the creme brûlée infused with lemon grass and lime leaves

Great freshly made food in a very central and easily accessible location. Even with the new social distancing and hygiene protocols in place, it was a great business lunch. Would be good to see more diners in the restaurant eating and supporting this great local business, hence the lower ambiance score.

We waren er vrij vroeg dus het was nog erg rustig, wel heerlijke pokebowl gegeten met wat hapjes vooraf en twee drankjes erbij. Prima bediening en snelle service. €90 voor drie personen.

Het was jammer dat we niet goed aan het einde werden bedient. Was rond 21.00 uur. Toen ging het personeel eten en wij zaten daar. Er werd niet gevraagt voor een toetje of koffie of iets dergelijks. We moesten zelf om de rekening vragen. Heel lief personeel alleen het einde waa wat minder eten was ook goed

Geweldige gastvrouwen/bediening, vriendelijk, behulpzaam en gastvrij. Vond de hoofdgerechten iets aan de prijs, zeker omdat je noodles of nasi er apart bij moet bestellen. De sfeer/inrichting vind ik persoonlijk niet heel erg gezellig maar kan ermee door. De tonijn met sesamkorst was heerlijk en precies goed bereid.
