I was ready for bad service and boy they sure didn’t disappoint! The service was appalling to say the least. However I was expecting at least decent tasting food and after tasting like 10+ variants of assorted dim sums and items from ordering menu I...More

We chanced upon this supposedly iconic dim sum place when we were around the area. The servers were not too rude today. However there was not much variety available. Besides what is shown below, there were chicken feet, spare ribs , sponge cake and pig...More

This tea house was highly recommended, since it still serves dim sum the traditional way. First, it was very difficulty to find. Once we get there, it was quite crowded by local people, so we had to share a table with others. That was completely...More

Terrible food and service and they charge like a wounded bull Please avoid in HK. The dim sum is very ordinary and you have to fight for your food.

Recommended to go here from some one who had been her a while, who is a foodie. This place is now bad, maybe it should close in 2019 unless it can get back to where it used to be.

A rustic dim sum place. If not for the ambience, it is a place you can skip. Customers are expected to "chase after" the dim sum cart. Don't expect to be served. Luckily for us, it was not too crowded when we reached, and had...More

Skip this restaurant if you want good dim sum. We had about 8 selections and regret to say didn't like any. Don't understand why it's recommended in tourist brochures. There are many good dim sum in Hong Kong but regrettably this is not one of...More

Based on my observation, you may not be able to find gluten free dim sum in this place. Nobody care whether you have been sitting there for hours and still have not placed any order. Their dim sum is not cheap either so my... More
