'Pretty decent' seems to be the general opinion over Ramsay's first HK restaurant: food is of a high quality, while prices are suitable for a celebchef, but some dishes disappoint and most feel it's nothing more than a fancy gastropub.

Fish and chips (HK$208) was made with barramundi, and both the fish and coating were too soft. Dingley Dell pork chop (HK$228) was the most disappointing. The meat wasn't overcooked (there was still some pink) but it was tough, dense and lacked flavour.

Some really are worthy of many a complimentary ‘f’ word but others are Bread Street Kitchen nightmares. It certainly beats Oliver’s army in CWB but work needs to be done here to make every meal outstanding – however, if anyone can, Gordon can.

It is, however, under online reservations you may have been double-booked like we did, as our company was split and directed to another table under same name and phone number. That aside, service ticked most of the boxes.

The restaurant has hit all the right spots – the location is fantastic, the atmosphere is jovial and urbane, and the dishes range from delectable to delightful.

We went in with deliberately low expectations to counter the sheer size of the celebrity that is Gordon Ramsey, and we were pleased by everything. Good food, tolerable prices, lovely staff and a vibrant atmosphere – we liked it.

The food was ideal for sharing and was tasty (especially the desserts!), however with starters ranging from $98-$168 and mains ranging from $148 all the way up to $488, it’s not the cheapest casual meal and is a little pricey for what it is… you are definitely paying for a name, too!

The flat bread is to die for. The King Crab is perfect, the spicy mayo burger is really good, and the macaroni & cheese lobster is simply divine. We completely fell under the spell of this place, and were conquered by the dishes. We are certainly coming back.

Bread Street Kitchen short rib burger with Monterey Jack cheese and spicy Siracha mayo. Decent burger, however as mentioned, service was so fast that by the time we got to the burger, it was stone cold which was a pity.

I was impressed, on the whole, by Bread Street Kitchen, although there are definitely several tweaks that could be worked on and speed of service could be improved. Perhaps if Chef Gilles starts giving his staff a bit of Gordon-style attitude then that might help speed things up a little!

The burger is probably the most mediocre of the mains I tried. The meat itself has a nice texture because of the short rib, but it had a slightly plasticky-taste. The spicy sriracha sauce I did enjoy very much, and I appreciated how the bun held together until the very last bite, but texture-wise, I would have liked something crunchy such as pickles or raw red onions.

My wife’s Japanese Kabocha squash hit all the right notes for a hungry vegetarian, while solid sides included a decent macaroni cheese under more of those breadcrumbs and a creamed corn which lived up to its name.

Overall, the food at Bread Street Kitchen was pretty good, even if it isn’t exactly what I’d call exciting. Everything was nicely cooked, with good quality ingredients, and there weren’t any utter flops either.

With 80% of the produce sourced from England, and fresh seafood sourced locally, we are amazed that most dishes on the menu are at the $150-200 mark.  Good value, most definitely, in pricey LKF.

Then my question became - why would I want to pay a premium to visit a place which happened to have some celebrity chef's name attached to it when the restaurant was just like any other random pick in town (and possibly less difficult to book)?

Resist the cocktail harpies and stick to wine only, avoid crustaceous mac & cheese and aim for a bill at HKD500+ each and then we’re back in fuck yeah territory.  If you walk out with a HKD1000 bill like we did – fuck no!

They were saving the best for last with one of their signature dishes - slow roasted Dingley Dell pork belly served with spiced apple puree and apple relish ($198). The Dingley Dell pork was famed for its flavor and texture and it was simply brilliant. I could still remember that melt-in-your-mouth sensation.

Every dish was full of fresh, quality produce and utilized a modern twist on many of our favourite classic recipes.

For mains, seafood lovers will enjoy the Roasted Ocean Trout with autumn vegetables and chorizo cream, a lightly flavoured dish that accentuates the freshness of the ingredients.
