Simply the best Dim Sum in HK. Luckily I found an HK angel helping us to select the best dishes. I think this place has 1 star Michelin .... Definitely deserved

My first experience with Dim Sum. Great choice as it is recognized by Michelin. We had a bite of everything but he pork bums and shrimp dumplings were my favorite. You just keep ordering as you go. Great food. Great service.

This restaurant is located at the back of a shopping mall which seems a little strange however it is worth the journey. The food was great and service fast & efficent and best of all it was excellent value for money. We went late in the evening (about 9pm) & there was no problem getting a table.

I was told to come here by many people and now I know why. This restaurant is located in a mall, rather than it being a stand alone restaurant, or even hole in the wall. We went early to avoid the lunchtime / brunctime crowd, and I recommend you do the same because they had people lining up outside the... More

Went there with a friend during our extended layover in HK. We got lucky and only had to wait 10 mins for a table. But by the time we were done the line must've grown to 40+ people. Ended up ordering way more than we could eat as dishes were very cheap and everything looked and tasted delicious. Great experience.... More

Highly recommend the BBQ pork buns. Eat them while they're hot! Price is decent. Space is small and tightly packed but what isn't in Hong Kong!

If you want to taste the local food but also want to be sure about the quality and the right price, then Tim Ho Wan is the ideal place. Don't expect a quiet restaurant with an easy going ambient. The pace of the restaurant is the pace of the streets of Hong Kong. We really liked the food, as one... More

We arrived at the restaurant before 10am. There was already a long line waiting for the door to open. When you're seated, just grab the order checklist on the table. Plan your order wisely. It takes longer time for second round order. The signature BBQ Pork Bun is a must and the first on your order. Double your order on... More

We ate at the THW in Olympian City -- can't speak to the other locations. We were seated promptly, had excellent food, really good service, and a fun dinner. Our party of four was divided on the subject of the meatballs...but the variety and flavor of all the selections was fantastic.

As the title says the selection is tiny, When we arrived we were seated on a table with many others, tea is compulsory and charged for; it's cheap but still just ask! We ordered three items and were charged for four resolving that took about ten minutes. My partner ordered the Rubio cake being vegetarian only half way though to... More

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighbourhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
