Having moved from its previous location along Gouger Street to Field Street, Kowloon Restaurant continues to offer a good range of Chinese food. Service was quite efficient with our food not taking too long to arrive after we have placed our order.
Their Hong Kong Style Baked Rice is one of the more unique dishes served here. It resembles a pasta bake dish, with the pasta replaced by rice. The chicken chop we chose for our dish had a crisp skin setting off the tender flesh, and the pepper sauce we picked had enough peppery flavour to make eating the dish an enjoyable experience. While the addition of cheese may sound strange, the degree of creaminess is actually quite mild and it gave the rice a crisp texture.

Making use of a vegetable rarely seen in restaurants, the bitter melon in Kowloon's Scrambled Egg with Bitter Melon gave the dish a bitter tang. The eggs were light and fluffy and if you wish to balance out the bitter taste, you can request for some chillies in soy sauce to add another layer of flavour.

For a dish that is more "normal", the Steamed Fish with Home Made Chilli Paste is a good choice. We were delighted by the generous size of the pieces of fish fillet, which were all cooked to perfection. The home-made chilli paste did a good job of lifting the flavour of the dish but it is advisable to not be too heavy handed with it as it packs a potent spicy punch.

Ambience of the restaurant is that of a small café though the tables were spaced a bit close to each other. Off-street parking is conveniently located in the U Park within walking distance from the restaurant.
