The menu at SEVVA is inspired by the cultural diversity of Hong Kong itself: Authentic tastes typical of those created in everyday Chinese regional kitchens adding to the myriad of influences from the colonial days. We present vibrant dishes that speak of the city's love of the classic food styles of Europe and other Asian cities.
The concept and philosophy of SEVVA is the interpretation of a refined upbringing and years of great exposure to the many travels and memories of Bonnae Gokson, Founder & mastermind of this establishment.
The cuisine is fresh, simple and honest, good food prepared on an emphasis of the finest produce: either from bustling local markets or flown-in (specialties) from around the world.

SEVVA's inspirational afternoon tea menus encompass the cultural diversity of Hong Kong's rich tapestry of cosmopolitan chic and historical heritage. SEVVA signature tea set is a wonderful fusion reflecting the city's love of cuisine styles from Europe and Asia, with dishes featuring traditional pairings such as toasted crumpet with smoked salmon and chive cream cheese and foie gras mousse and onion marmalade on savoury waffle, contrasting against twists on the classics such as SEVVA signature dish crabmeat and prawn salad burger, and salad Kyoto on cucumber.
In addition innovative Rolled Sandwiches are served in wax paper and place mat printed with the famous SEVVA Scenarios illustrated by renowned fashion illustrator – Gladys Perint Palmer – with classic combinations including French ham & Brie cheese plus Minced Chicken Salad. Artistic presentation does not stop there, as beautifully intricate sugar art is a unique feature such as the handmade sugar plaque atop the SEVVA signature crabmeat and prawn salad burger.
