Not all popular restaurants are my favorites but this place is definitely worthy of the hype! My favorite is obviously the BBQ pork bun with the crusty top but everything else menu is also very good. We always go to the Olympian City location just because the line is shorter. We also enjoy walking around the mall after our satisfying... More

Queue up as early as 10 AM to avoid the lines. Even if this Tim Ho Wan branch isn't the original, the food still is, and there are still crowds who flock this place. Tell the lady at the booth how many you are and she will give you a piece of paper for your orders - English menu for... More

Low price with high quality of food. Must try! My favourite is the deep fired pork bun, crunch on the surface, sweet but inside with the BBQ pork.

we had to wait for a few minutes included being passed on couple of times even though we had our number on the ticket (you have to take a ticket first because of the crowds and small space restaurant). It was very busy, the service was efficient and quick, food was big in portion and good in average but not... More

Hello everybody, I like this place, just because it attracts not just tourist but also the locals. It is busy, so the staff are trying to sit everyone, serve them, clean after them. They work long hours and everyday. So i understand when they are rude, sure as a customer its not acceptable, but hey.... i would probably be the... More

Loved it. The restaurant is lively. Food is excellent. Price is very reasonable. The restaurant is at walking distance from our hotel in North Point. It was recommended by our concierge upon our request where to eat dim sum. He was totally right. It's a neighbourhood restaurant. The food is made on the spot. Service is swift/hardly any waiting time.... More

i dint get the hyper over this place- queuing for an hour to eat in a cramped restaurant isnt my idea of a nice dining experience. The food is good! The atmosphere isnt great- he staff just want to get as many people through the restaurant as possible so they're pushy. I suggest getting their pork buns as takeout and... More

They got our order wrong even though it is handed in on paper, and they didn't exactly manage the situation well. Just said 'ok' without an excuse or attemp to correct their mistake. The food was ok but hardly awesome, worth trying if you don't have the time or energy to find anything else. If you do so I recommend... More
