Sharing platters make the perfect takeaway. Not only do they allow you to try all sorts of different goodies at once, and whether it's friends, family or work clients, they bring everyone together at the dinner table. So if you've got company, and you want to make sure they leave full and happy, here's our a few of our favourite platters in Hong Kong.
1. Set for 15, POKE
If you'd like a taste of the sun-kissed shores of Hawaii, try ordering from POKE. You'll find this classic fish salad dish on their set menus which are perfect when ordered as platters. The collection here feeds 15 people, and offers up the best of their menu. You'll find everything from their gourmet poke bowls to a hearty King Crab Salad in this wonder.
Where: POKE, Caroline Hill
2. Party Set, Yung Kee Restaurant
For traditional Cantonese eats, try the platters over at Yung Kee Restaurant – you can order them in sets of 6, 12 or 25, which means you can cater to everything from a get-together with friends to an office away-day. Our favourite dish is their incredible, aromatic charcoal-roasted goose, which thankfully comes as part of all their platters.
Where: Yung Kee Restaurant, Central
3. San Francisco, Cali-Mex
With Mexican food famous for handy street treats like burritos, empanadas and tacos, it's no surprise that when they come together, it's truly awesome. And Cali-Mex is used to catering for groups, so you'll find an extensive platter menu on offer here. If you're ordering for a few friends, their Junk Boat Packages have everything from spicy burritos and bursting tacos to cheesy quesadillas and smoky chipotle pulled pork.

4. I Knead Lunch 10 Person, Knead
If you're looking for light lunch platters, Knead is the ideal place for your order. They have a huge variety of Catering Sandwiches which can be freshly prepared in large batches to the highest standard – whether it's their tender braised beef brisket, salty Parma ham or smoked salmon, you'll be spoilt for choice with fillings.
5. For 5 Pax, Fishsteria Seafood Place
As you can probably guess from the name, the chefs at Fishsteria specialise in seafood, ideal for corporate platters where you want to impress, especially when there's whole, fresh lobster on the menu. Opt for the For 5 Pax – with marinated Venetian sardines, crab meat burrata salads, a whole lobster and more – or go for the 10 or 20 person option depending on how many taste buds you've got to wow.

6. Set For 10, The Butchers Club Burger

Bitesize and with so many varieties, sushi is the perfect platter food. At Kyoto Joe's, you can mix and match your sashimi for a tailored order, or keep things simple with one of their combo meals.
