Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Nathan Road, Kowloon

This is a night scene which would normally prove a bit difficult for identification purposes but for the existence of a sign to one of Tsim Sha Tsui's long-established eateries: the Very Good Sea Food Restaurant or the Ting Ho (頂好海鮮酒家 ) as its name is usually romanised.

It's located at 90-94 Nathan Road and the screen caps above show us looking south from the junction with Granville Road. Although I've never been there to eat, it's supposedly quite good (I guess the fact it has been around so long is testament to that), and was the subject of an old Bruce Lee related story that ended up proving to be bogus (someone had said the Unicorn Fist promo lunch was held there, but actually this took place at the old Miramar). Anyway, here is the same view today thanks to Streetview. The current wavy blue resto sign can be seen directly underneath/behind the one for The Body Shop.
