Group Food and Beverage Manager, Mr Raymond Moore at AVA Restaurant Slash Bar said: “AVA Restaurant Slash Bar is honoured to be recognised as ‘Best Restaurant of the Week’ by DiningCity Hong Kong Restaurant Week, especially as it is renowned as one of the world’s biggest and exciting dining events. As the award was voted by the diners, on atmosphere, service and cuisine, this is particularly rewarding to the whole team for both culinary and service team members, without their teamwork, this would not have been possible. Participating in this event was rewarding as it enabled AVA to showcase our creative menu at an affordable price to a wider range of customers. We recommend DiningCity to promote your restaurant!”
Onno Schreurs, Managing Director of DiningCity said “The Restaurant Week awards are voted by diners so they are testament to the fantastic cuisine, atmosphere and service of the restaurants that participated in the Week. This year we also took into account the feedback on many blogs written by Hong Kong foodies. AVA, Steik World Meats, Wooloomooloo, Spasso, Bo Innovation and The Press Room all did spectacularly and are well-deserved winners.
“Our second Restaurant Week was a phenomenal success with 20% of restaurants booked out in the first 30 minutes of our website going live and many restaurants offering more seats to cope with the demand. We’ve had some fantastic feedback from both diners and restaurants for this year’s Restaurant Week and we are thrilled to reveal that the next Restaurant Week will take place 9 to 15 July 2012 – so it will become a regular celebration of food every Winter and Summer in Hong Kong” added Schreurs.
