Tate is a classic example of all style and little substance: fancy dishes, a former Michelin chef and sky-high prices, but most critics feel the food just doesn't cut it.

Tate’s cosy and comfortable ambience and enthusiastic staff make it worth a second visit – but we do hope that the menu stops feeling like some sort of theme party.

We opted for the six-course menu, which was more than enough food, and with a bottle of wine, it came to just over HK$1,000 per head. Considering the quality of the food, we find this to be good value.

We were less wowed by the beetroot starter drenched in balsamic—not that it was bad, but why have a vegetable taste pickled when it is clearly fresh and full of potential on its own?

Was I hungry after my nine-course meal? No… but neither was I bursting at the seams, and I’m not sure I’m willing to pay $980 and not feel like I’m going to pop!

The dishes are original, and look the part- all sprinkled with a little something which really makes the difference! Our favourite part was the whiskey chocolate mousse- pure happiness!

In general, I think the food at Tate has gotten better since it opened last year, and reading over my review, it seems that I am enjoying the flavours on the whole, but texture is something that could be improved.

I don't know how other people feel about Tate, but I personally think it has a lot to work on if it want to survive in one of Hong Kong's hottest dining district, Soho.

Overall, I was fairly disappointed with Tate. There were some hits (BEEF, I’m talking about you) but too many misses. I really, really was rooting for it!

For a dinner that cost around $1,300 per head (including wine), we did not leave the restaurant feeling completely full. However, putting the small portions aside, our overall dining experience was quite enchanting.

The technique and creativity was amazing and I was finding it hard to believe that Chef Vicky is still relatively new to the culinary scene.
