Tips from the blogger:

Since the NOBU T-Sets are only available on weekends from 2:30pm—5:00pm, advance reservation will ensure you seats with a great view of the harbor. Having a walk along Victoria Harbor after the tea time will also be a good choice for enjoying the terrific night view of Hong Kong.
