Memories of Hong Kong 1980s

My guess is Mody Road at the junction with Cornwall Avenue on the right, and Minden Row on the left. What indicates this location is a comment from Mike "My favourite eating place was the Malayan restaurant Minden ave".

Any other suggestion would be welcome.

SCMP reported in 2003: Founded by a former French paratrooper, Bernard Vigneau, in 1964, the 60-seat restaurant was a slice of Europe in Tsim Sha Tsui. 

The restaurant was located at 6 Hankow Road (probably inside the Hanchung Mansion which opened 05/1962), at least until the 1980s.

It moved later to 4B-6H Carnarvon Road.
