I can speak the language, accustomed to dim sum however this was a bad experience on a few factors. Quality of dim sum was not great, go to tim ho wan or any of the dim sum restaurants in kowloon. Too busy, it took us forever to get a table, the elevator was a nightmare as there is only one,... More

Take the elevator to their condition or third floor, find a seat. Sharing tables is OK. When me carts of dumplings show up, don't be shy about rushing over with your slip and getting them. If you don't you'll be limited to the leftovers.

This may be a tad hard to find if you are not a native of Hong Kong. Lucky for us, we had a local take us to this terrific place where dim sum is served on carts that roll through the restaurant. Point, pick, eat and enjoy. This is not fine dining -- no fancy linens or ambience. It is... More

We visited with a local tour guide and she wanted us to experience real local life She said this was the most popular Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong. Be prepared for the noise, it's like a school canteen x 20!! We had a table to ourselves as we were 8.The food is served by ladies wheeling trollies of bamboo serving... More

My Hong Konger spouse complains that this establishment is chaotic, noisy, and perhaps not the cleanest, but I call it "yit nuo" (lively, bustling), authentic and good. Here you will probably "ping zhuo" which means share your table with a stranger or two, so be prepared for this. The waiters run around and serve the tea from kettles (or at... More

Access is thru a small lift to 2F, and find yourself in a large buoyant room packed with small tables. Staff ladies - grandmas- circulate with their dim sums charriots in the crowded place. Staff will assign you a table - to be shared- and your dim sum experience will be fully fulfilled. Good place to test your chinese speaking... More

push cart dim sum. Plenty of local senior citizens were there having their morning tea. Sharing of tables is the norm. Good dim sum items which are unique and tasty. For a good sense of traditional Hong Kong dim sum please patronise this location

We dined at this restaurant in November 2016. To be sure we ate dinner, and maybe the Dim Sum would be better, but we would not know. I can only speak based on our actual experience. The food is ok but nothing special. We ordered the Cantonese barbecue chicken or whatever, but this does not seem or taste any different... More

Old world family style restaurant. Furniture is a throw back to the 60's and 70's. Long queue and this is a testament for the quality of food. Reasonably priced. Come teary and be a patient if you still have to wait. The food is worth the wait. Two minutes walk from Ibis Hotel Central & Shen Wan. Make the effort... More

Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area.
