Fantastic food, very Chinese experience. The best dim sum I have had. Only cash payment, bring your own beer! Enjoy! Quick service too.

No wonder there is a long cue for this restaurant. And no wonder it has a michelin star... The tastes are classic, yet excellent (so don't expect truffle infused engineered dim sums. This is good old cooking, made to perfection). The prices are unbelievably reasonable...More

This is fastfood dimsum! People go in n out very quickly and service is good. There is english and chinese menu but no drawing so harder to decipher as their english is still not that good. Their portioning is smaller than Philippines but otherwise, ok.

We also went to the Olympic City venue and it was great. We didn't book, we queued for about 15-20 minutes before we go a table.
What is the best way to get there. The walking directions from the Mong kok MTR station warn that they may not be right :( Thanks
