Pizza Hut

Deep-pan pizza

Pizza Hut, for those times when your cheese cravings can’t be satisified anywhere else. Likely to be the same standard the world over, serving you ‘a decent pizza’ (especially the thin-base). Not as good as a real pizzeria, but better than most you can find in the psuedo-Italian restaurants in China.

Service is good, queues often long (especially around noon and 6pm), and prices are generally higher than elsewhere. However, it’s quick, clean, and consistent. If you like what’s on special offer then you can also get a good deal.

The Spaghetti House is another franchised restaurant chain that has taken Hong Kong by storm, and has now recently opened in Guangzhou.

Food and prices are not bad, although the sauces tend to be too rich, and it is no substitute for a ‘real’ Italian restaurant. It makes for a popular venue for young people.
