The soup here is very tasty especially the snake soup. The soup tastes like your mom prepares it for you. However, other food is a bit mediocre. The service is still quite old style.

Let not their serving of snake soup deter those of us who do not want this dish. The rest of the dishes are gems too. We come for their pork and duck liver sausages dishes as these sausages are made in-house. The liver sausages is liken to the Chinese version of foie gras with depth of wine-like flavor. The other...

I wanted to try something new. So I've got to this snake soup place. I ordered a small soup for around 400 HKD but it was huge. It was little slimy when it gets cold. But still delicious and worth to try!!

Snake soup was good - had I not known, I would have thought it was chicken. Seemed no different. Clay rice pot arrived with rice already burned to the pot, pork was gristly, chicken feet were average, no great flavors. Service verging on hostile. Atmosphere lively, restaurant was full, brightly lit.

Cantonese consider snake to be very healthy food. Especially in the fall and winter, we all will have a bowl of snake soup to warm us up. It is also very tasty. Ser Wong Fun is a eatery that have been around a very long time. They serve very traditional and simply Chinese food. Their quality have remained the same... More

You really need to go with a cantonese speaker, because they speak no english! We came across it walking up Connaught Street. They do have a menu card with english subtitles! We also managed to order cans of beer (not on the menu card) with our meal - sign language!. We didn't go for snake items in which they evidently... More

It's simple. Local staples made just like the old days. Bit pricey now, but you won't get the same taste anywhere else. Real Hong Kong eats.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
