Welcome to the Capitol Website

Dear Customer

Annie and I wish to advise you that we are retiring at the end of May 2014.

It is a mixed feeling after running the Capitol for over 24 years. It is time for us to spend more time with our family or find some new hobbies.

It has been very rewarding and fantastic experience in the last 24 years. We certainly enjoy the time and company of you, your friends and family. We hope that you have enjoyed the food and service at the Capitol. It has been our pleasure to serve you.

We must thank you for your custom, loyalty, support and patience.

As far as the Capitol is concerned, most key staff will be staying to serve you. The new owner, Ms Emma Lam, will take over the Capitol on 1st June 2014. I am sure they will carry on providing you with the usual standard of service and quality of food.

Please feel free to pop in for a drink before the end of May.

We hope to see you again before the end of May.

Once again thank you very much for your kind support.
We wish you all the best and hope to see you soon.

Yours sincerely

Steve and Annie Tam
