About Beef & Liberty - Lan Kwai Fong
This here is big boy beef. The burgers are beautiful, to the eyes and the tastebuds, and the quality of meat (organic, grass-fed) is several cuts above what you often get at other burger joints around Hong Kong – excluding, of course, the other outlets of Beef & Liberty. It’s a well-known name among beefy burger-lovers or those with a penchant for American comfort foods, but there’s much more than meats the eye at Beef & Liberty’s buzzing Lan Kwai Fong outlet (vegetarians and coeliacs are in no way left out of the fun). Just minutes from Central MTR on D’Aguilar Street, queues are common at Beef & Liberty and although the food is certainly worth the wait, we strongly recommend advance table reservations!

You know I’m all about that beef – well, at least that’s what you’ll be saying after you visit Beef & Liberty in Lan Kwai Fong. Right in the hub of Hong Kong’s most buzzing micro-district, this haven of heavenly burgers is a welcome sight for Central’s hungry business lunch crowd, and it’s the ideal place to line the stomach of an evening of revelry. The beef packed into burger patties by hand right here on D’Aguilar Street is from grass-fed, hormone-free cattle raised in Tasmania, and believe us – you taste the difference.
It’s not only beef though, with a host of delicious, aesthetically impressive burgers ranging from beetroot and brown rice to slow-braised BBQ pork and crackling, and while the burgers are, how do you say, out of this world, there is a lot, lot more on offer at this D’Aguilar Street star – like sweet potato fries, pumpkin and lentil salad, American-style warm skillet cookie and cream, mac ‘n’ cheese bites, sausage roll and many, many more enticing entities. Beef & Liberty is often packed – whether of late-night Lan Kwai Fong revellers or during Hong Kong’s lunchtime power hour when Central’s office blocks empty and streetside queues form – so bookings are strongly advised.
I got my own server and I think the service is excellent. The food is good and I had I really good time there. I think I will be coming back really soon:)
The burgers are the yummiest!!! We really enjoyed the milkshakes also. It is a nice place in LKF to bringing younger children before 8:00pm. Thanks.
Beef & liberty is spacious and as I have booked a table in advance, I did not need to wait to be seated. The food and the service was great and we had an enjoyable lunch.
Excellent food, drinks and service. Decor and venue also fantastic as is location. They also brought complimentary food at the beginning and end of the meal which was a nice touch.
Brilliant start to the new year! It was a very tasty lunch. To celebrate the NY, we were offered a (free) serving of Beef & Liberty's chicken liver parfait, which we've never tried before. With crispy shallots for a crunchy texture and maple syrup to balance out the pate's rich flavour, it was a dish that we'd now order again! For mains, I had the confit duck burger, a limited holiday edition burger - succulent, juicy confit duck, with braised red cabbage - SO SO good! My wife enjoyed the Bacon Cheese, served medium - gooey raclette cheese, crispy bacon on top of a juicy patty, what's not to like?! As this was a Friday end of week lunch, we decided to treat ourselves to a shared dessert - the Banoffee Pie. Very glad we got it as it was a fab sweet treat to finish off the meal - sticky caramel, sweet bananas in a vanilla creamy mousse on top of an oaty base. The crunchy choc bits really topped it off! Fantastic with a black coffee. This lunch certainly put a smile on our faces and we will be back at Beef & Liberty again very soon!
I came for the signature banoffee pie, so I decided to have a mini bacon and cheese burger as the main dish. The mini burger is very tiny; it tastes really good tho! I love having it with the house ketchup and mustard which lift up the taste of beef a lot. After the mini burger, I simply went straight to order my favourite banoffee pie. I would say, B&L serves the best banoffee pie in town indeed! It is not too sweet but with a strong taste of toffee syrup. It has many slices of banana and you can feel that there's some popping candies in your mouth jumping here and there! It is actually a portion for 2 persons and the price is way too reasonable which I must come back for it with my companion. I barely finished the whole pie, then I asked for a box for takeaway. You know what, the banoffee pie tastes even better after refrigerated an hour at home! I would not hesitate to take away the banoffee pie whenever I pass by B&L.
The restaurant is really lovely, great decor and ambiance. The service initially was quick and attentive but then unfortunately we felt that the waiter, although he took our order quite promptly when requested didn't actually complete the order. We did not receive the water that was requested for the table and one of the menu items did not arrive. We noticed that our waiter appeared to the only one working half of the restaurant and we felt that he was too busy. When our food did arrive we had noticed that it had been sat on the food pass for at least 5 minutes. What this mean was the chips were cold when they arrived at the table. Some had to be sent back they were so cold. The food cheeseburger I ordered and Liberty fries were great. I will definitely be back, hopefully there are more waiters next time!
A fantastic lunch. The food was tasty and in my opinion above average for this type of cuisine. Seasoned perfectly (what is it with HK restaurants fear of using salt?), cooked to perfection and well presented. But the reason for 6 out of 6. I always believe the sign of a good restaurant is how they respond to an issue. My glass was chipped and I asked for the drink to be replaced. This was done without complaint. I was more than happy but the fabulous waitress provided a dessert on the house in way of a further apology. Very enjoyable and without question I will be heading back...
It was a busy lunchtime. 20 minutes into lunch, we asked the waiter if we could have our food quicker as we had to head back to the office in half hour. He was reluctant at first and said he will try his best, but nonetheless the food was brought out 5 minutes after. As he knew we were in a hurry, he also brought over the bill to save us time. He later explained that because the big boss was in, everyone was stressed. Personally, having worked in a busy restaurant myself, I do not see that as an excuse to be stressed in a restaurant full of customers, but he was really polite and apologetic about it. The food was excellent.
Have been looking forward to the weekend brunch menu. Tried mac & cheese sandwich and that was awesome! It was really mac & cheese filling with grilled cheese on the surface, the taste was just right and not greasy at all. The bacon jam was unexpectedly good which was such a perfect match with the cheese. As usual, I ordered a banoffee pie to wrap up my brunch. The banana slices always go well with the toffee syrup, love it so much!! Will definitely come back for the brunch menu.
Very warm hospitality. Ambience was great. The place is clean. Those sweet potato fries had brilliant sauce to go with it. The black pepper burger fulfilled its promise of freshly ground pepper and the beef patty was juicy, perfectly cooked. One teeny drawback was that the bread was a little soggy at the bottom but Im not sure if much can be done about that. Otherwise it was a perfect end to my day.
I'd eaten at the Wan Chai branch before but this was my first time at this branch. The fit out of the space is superb - much better than Wan Chai. It was a beautiful sunny day which we got to enjoy sitting on the terrace, and the service was fantastic. The food was as good as I had expected from my visits to the Wan Chai branch.
Lambo and pork burger were good, although the portion wasn't so big. I do like the burger bun and barbecue sauce of the burger. For ladies, the burger won't drip lot of sauce while eating. Therefore won't be a messed. I have top up for red wine, I guess I couldn't ask for more on the house red, could have improvement on the house wine.
Comfortable setting and environment. Good to have a relaxing gathering with friends. A la carte and sets are available. They have three sets, each consist of a burger, fries/salad and a drink. The notorious p.i.g. burger was a little bit spicy but i love the sauce, and I couldn't stop eating the fries, crispy on the outside and tender in the inside. I love the fresh lemonade too. Overall I would recommend the restaurant.
The beef bacon cheese burger is a must have item! Very juicy and along with the fries and freshly lemonade are perfectly match! The lambo burger is also quite interesting to give it a try! The service is very attentive although we noticed they were something happened to next table but the recovery service from the company is good! Will definitely come back thanks Chef and all staffs!
The waiters available were evidently scarced at around 10pm. We requested for checking the bill, it took us 10 mins to finally get a waiter to help us, and then waited another 10 mins to have the bill delivered to us. The worst thing was we waited 10 mins for the waiter to collect our visa for the payment, yet we were in a hurry, so we needed to get up and walk out to get someone to take our visa. As for the rest, they were good, but the dinning experience turned sour at the end due to the exceptionally long waiting time for checkig the bill.
Staff were nice and friendly. They were always there whenever we needed help. The food was great as usual! We will definitely be back again in future. (Just a minor issue that affected us, but there's nothing to do with the restaurant, which was the guy two tables away from us was talking too loudly and it was quite disturbing along with the music)
The restaurant was very busy when I got there, so I expected the service to be slower than usual. However it was dead slow, or if I am being blunt - non-existent. I waved at every server to get service for 10 minutes and after not getting any responses I literally had to walk to a server to get service. After the order, the drinks took more than 10 minutes to arrive (we ordered sparkling water and a glass of wine - not even a cocktail!). That's just not cool, B&L! Thankfully the food was spot-on, so that kind of saved this review.
Nice burger, very nice. Slow drinks, finished burger before drinks arrived. We stayed for a few more drinks, no complaint. This was lunchtime, so only 1 barman, as we are told. But, this place only does burgers, and churns them out, sadly lacked the extras gor a chilled lunch. Perhaps cater to the in/out, coca cola only business luch. Still, a damn good burger. Make sure you order fries, burger is burger only.
Came for brunch on Saturday morning and had the mac'n'cheese sandwich - delicious! The service was attentive without being overbearing and I appreciated the refills for my teapot. The restaurant itself is bright and spacious and was quite quiet first thing on a Saturday morning, although filling up with the lunch crowd by the time I was leaving.
