I realize this place is listed as the dim sum specialists but the baked char siu bao was the best and we tried them in several places around the city over a week's time. Definitely different from steamed bao, but the baked sweet crust was a nice twist. You will find a table quicker early when it opens or get... More

Not bad for a quick snack if no need to queue for hours. Cheap dim sum with good quality of food, but not the best place for a relaxing meals.

We went here and recieved excellent service and food. The meals were great and each dish had a unique presentation. The shrimp dumplings and the pork buns were especially delicious.

Three of us visited. It has been a while since the last time. The service and especially the foods level went down. We ordered our favourites, but the foods were no good. However the prices were not cheap neither. We would not go again.

I can't believe how good these dumplings were!! The pork dumplings were not in a traditional wrapper...I think they were fried in a ball of glutinous rice. And the price can't be beat. I have been dreaming about these dumplings since I got back to NY. They had a few other items on the menu, but I was too preoccupied... More

Tim Ho Wan does the best crispy pork buns in the world! They are bread buns with a crunchy shell filled with delicious char sui. The osmanthus jelly with goji berries is out of this world. Food heaven

Loved it, one of the most delicious meals I have had. Everything was lovely. The service was efficient and the price is so cheap. I visited the one in Central Station and had to wait 45 minutes to 1 hour, not sure if the other branches are quieter

I went with family a few times and enjoyed it very much each time. It is rather local but the dim sum was great. Despite the basic style of the Restarant, the service we got was good and ultra efficient. It is a bit like fast food chain but serving dim sum. Hence, you were not expected to chit chat... More
