Ever since the closure of the karaoke bar vis-a-vis Cath's Bar, Lamma's karaoke fans of all ages have been yearning for a new venue to practice their "talents" in public and not just behind closed doors.
The occasional events at Sampan Rest., like Women's Day, have been far from sufficient to satisfy the cravings of our flocks of karaoke aficionados.

Rejoice, Prime Bar & Grill is offering an outlet for your "talents" now. Entertain the neighbours, impress your friends, make the tourists feel at home and maybe invite them to join in your soulful, vocal displays of "My Way"!

This Saturday night in Prime Bar & Grill, Aug 15, hopefully to become a regular event soon??

Next Wed's DJ Night in the Lamma Grill has been changed to Comedy Night.

After Prime has given up Comedy Nights, it's great to see these back in Yung Shue Wan!
Let's hop this will become more than a one-off event!

First-ever Local Celebrity Auction.

I wonder if they can find 12 local celebrities and who they'll be? We have featured many Lamma Living Legends, Official Court... and Lamma Celebrities over the years, but many of them are far too shy to be auctioned off in public!

New restaurant in progress, opening around Mid-Autumn festival or early Oct!

Bombay Bar & Restaurant in the former Thai Plus premises on Back Street.

Sorry to see the larger, cozy Thai Plus go, under renovation now. We liked the owner quite a lot and their great food. Best Tom Yung Goong and crab cakes on the Island!
But it was just too low-key, almost never promoting itself in any way.
Is there really space for THREE Thai restaurants in Yung Shue Wan? Survivors Thai Thai in Tai Yuen and Good Luck Thai (behind the Public Toilet) seem to be doing OK for now.

Thai Plus's menu might survive, moving it to the neighbouring tiny Thai takeaway which will open all week and let you dine in on a few tables, a la Thai Thai in Tai Yuen Village, we assume. Got to talk to the owner soon.

According to the manager of Best Kebab last night (see photo above), Bombay will be their 2nd place and will focus on Indian curries and other Indian food by the same chef currently cooking all the Indian specials in Best Kebab.

There's some stiff and well-established Indian-food competition in YSW - Beer Garden and especially the absolutely excellent Waterfront Indian food. I'm "addicted" to their famous lunch Thalis (sporting my Thali photos on their lunch tabletops).
So it'll be a tough competition, but Lamma-Por and I wish them all the best! We hope to be at the opening party and left my contact details, on their request.

They wanted to do an Italian restaurant at first, but the confirmed cook pulled out recently.
Maybe the current manager - ex-Isola in IFC - might start cooking again himself as he has the experience!? Real Italian (most popular foreign cuisine in Switzerland) that would be something we'd line up for!

Thai Thai is in Sha Po before you get to Brothers not in Tai Yuen. (Which starts around the recycling bins just after Brothers). Just pointing that out in case people go looking for it in Tai Yuen!

Although a new restaurant/bar is a great addition (hopefully) we could do with something other than another Indian, which like you say, is already well provided for. Vietnamese or Mexican would be my choice!

Thanks for the correction. Mea culpa.

The problem for most restaurants seems to be to get staff to travel out here to Lamma from wherever their family lives now.
Lots of good chefs and staff have left over the years because of the long commute, despite high salaries offered, sometimes within just a few weeks.

Having to provide low-cost quarters in high-rent YSW for single staff seems to be common.

Blue Goose Tavern closed down in Wanchai and has taken over Prime Bar & Restaurant!

People seem to love their burgers and I got massive feedback on Facebook for my "John Wayne Burger" picture:
