Everyone knows that musicians are passionate about their craft. If you’re wondering how well this passion translates over to food, take a look at tfvsjs.syut. The popular restaurant was founded by Hong Kong instrumental band tfvsjs, and has gained a big following for their imaginative dishes that come at affordable prices. If you still haven’t been, then what are you waiting for?
First opened in the band’s own rehearsal studio in Ngau Tau Kok, you’ll find tfvsjs.syut relocated to an industrial-chic underground venue in Sai Wan. With an all-new space and beautifully-presented food, it’s no surprise that the restaurant has become even more popular after its move.

Like its original location, the new Sai Wan venue of tfvsjs.syut is lofty and raw with a chill, relaxed atmosphere. However, being underground, it misses out on natural light. In most cases this would have been unfavourable, but the grungy shadowed interior actually suits the needs of the hipster restaurant better for band performances. Laid out with rustic furniture and metal decor, tfvsjs.syut proves to be the ideal spot for dinners and concerts alike.
Most hipster eateries serve photogenic but subpar-tasting food, but the dishes at tfvsjs.syut will pleasantly surprise even the most brutal of all critics. Each innovative item on the menu is crafted with care and plated to impress. The Vegetable Salad, available all day, is drizzled in a homemade black sesame tofu mayo dressing, topped with sesame seed crackers and comes with a stack of freshly baked sourdough. It’s one to try for the flavourful dressing alone.
There’s only one conclusion to draw here: more music bands should open their own restaurant. If all eateries were like tfvsjs.syut with quality food that isn’t damaging on the wallet, then the food scene in Hong Kong would be a much better place. Check out tfvsjs.syut if you’re in the area, or drop by for a concert or two!
