2nd time here in 20 yrs, famous HK institution but very disappointed, tourist attraction... dim sum & BBQ pork are mediocre, beef fried noodles is ok but price is very expensive, same as China Tang with beautiful deco/harbour view/fine China & more! Won't be back!

Luk Yu is an institution in Hong Kong. While the wait staff might seem intimidating the first couple of times you eat there, they become a lot more accommodating in the long run and provide genuinely good service. The Dim Sum is one of my favorites in all of Hong Kong, especially the Har Gow (shrimp dumplings) which are steamed... More

Very rude staff. Kind of shabby - you sign up for that. But the staff is getting more rude. Be prepared for that. Extremely arrogant - the most arrogant group of staff I have seen in my life.

I went through all of the reviews and was prepared for bad service. But I wanted to try it for myself as it is a very famous restaurant and my favourite author Cai Lan had spoken well of it in his writing. Although the waiters were quick to take orders and might leave after listening to one or two items... More

When we arrived we were told to keep heading up to the top floors - even though there were plenty of empty tables on the floors we were passing. When we got to the top floor - the waiters ignored us. Finally we asked one waiter who told us there was no room. My husband asked him if we should... More

I was here alone at 1pm and was waved off at each floor saying that it's 'full' when clearly there are 5-10empty tables. Clearly they are not keen to do one pax business. Never going to patronise such restaurant again! Such arrogance. Ps the stupid Indian staff downstairs told me those empty tables are fully reserved. Yah right, when people... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
