Tried this restaurant one level below the Hong Kong Airport Express station and found the dim sum to be average at best and service below average. I guess the owners feel that in order to maintain an inexpensive meal price at such a location, something...More

We came here before lunch time so we did not queue long for this. As usual, space is limited so we had to share with other diners. Food wise, my friend and I feel that it was not worth the price we paid. The staff...More

The food is not that great at this brunch. It is not freshly prepared, the pork & shrimp shu mai taste like re-heated frozen food. We had Tim Ho Wan at Bangkok branch before and the taste is better. Just want to try the original...More

I had the unfortunate pleasure of dining at Tim Ho Wan recently. The food was awful. The rice noodle rolls were sloppy and tasteless (much like processed frozen varieties), dumplings lacked flavour, chilli sauce was horrible, soy sauce tastes like rubbish and they also have...More

We came here as a family before we headed up to the peak, and honestly I wouldn't come here again - I can find better dim sum in Toronto. For the famous BBQ pork buns, Skyview or dragon boat fusion does a better job. Everything...More

Looking for Dim Sum this early is hard to find but Tim Ho Wan does operate very early and the only one that opens among so many restaurants here. Due to this, you need to queue and even share a table with other patrons. The...More

Everything you read about Tim Ho Wan is true. The early start, to avoid the queues, I cannot recommend enough. They have their system sorted though and the wait didn't look too bad as I sat inhaling my Baked BBQ pork buns on both of...More

If you don’t mind waiting in the queue, this yum cha restaurant is a must visit for anyone who loves dim sum. The Baked BBQ buns are delish as are other dim sums such as rice noodle rolls, siu mai, radish cake etc. The restaurant...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

I doubted very much. It’s a dim sum lunch restaurant. They usually expected you to have lunch quickly and leave as there is a Long line of customers waiting. I don’t think it’s a place to pop open a bottle of wine and enjoy... More

You may need to ask people once you get there since you have to go up some escalators and they were somewhat confusing. However, any of the shop attendants can help you. Mainly look for the food arcade at the Hong Kong... More
