Diverse selection of quality restaurants bring compelling flavours to Pacific Place and Starstreet Precinct
Pacific Place today unveiled a new and refreshed gastronomic experience by introducing ten new contemporary eateries, which will open progressively during the second half of 2016. Spanning a range of cuisines, including contemporary Italian, modern Chinese, stylish brasserie, authentic Thai, Japanese fusion, artisanal coffee and éclairs, the new additions will be operated by established local and international restaurant groups, and seven of the ten will either be original concepts or will be making their Hong Kong debut.
“Our strategy is aimed at further broadening the variety and diversity of choices to make Pacific Place more attractive to a wider range of customers,” said Fiona Shiu, General Manager, Pacific Place. “We’re excited to be collaborating with these fantastic operators from both Hong Kong and overseas, most of whom have chosen Pacific Place to debut their restaurants. I am confident the new offerings, which cover a variety of price points, will hold great appeal for our customers.”
In a move to beef up the tenant mix and offerings of Pacific Place in 2016 and 2017, the F&B footprint at Pacific Place mall will be increased by 50%, which means the addition of at least 10 new outlets. Together with the popular eateries at Starstreet Precinct, the new dining mix will create a vibrant culinary scene across the entire Pacific Place neighbourhood.
The first batch of new eateries at Pacific Place mall and Starstreet Precinct includes:
- Apinara Thai Cuisine and Bar – Award winning Bangkok restaurant Nara will partner with HK F&B Group Drawing Room Concepts to launch its first restaurant and bar in Hong Kong.

Pacific Place will also enhance its lifestyle and entertainment components. For example, the popular AMC Pacific Place will undergo a major facelift, including the introduction of a full-service VIP house, a revamp of the overall design and the installation of new illumination technology for the screen, along with the most advanced sound system to offer an enhanced refreshing cinematic experience. The cinema will continue to operate while the work is ongoing, with only the houses under renovation closed during the revamp, which is expected to be completed by December this year.
