TA-KE Japanese Restaurant

G01, Lee Garden Two, 28 Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay


Privacy and Glamour

Internationally acclaimed lighting designer Tino Kwan has chosen Ta-ke, which he collaborated on with design masters Kengo Kuma and Steven Leung as his favourite interior in Hong Kong. Ta-Ke is a sophisticated Japanese restaurant, integrating in- and outdoors and Japanese traditions and sensibilities with Hong Kong's vibrancy. Japanese cuisine is theatre, an occasion to see and to be seen, but where privacy is desired, inspired by the traditional Japanese courtyard, there are wood and bamboo partitions and the warm golden light encourages intimacy between fellow guests.
