Come here for incredible food and a truly authentic Hong Kong dim sum experience. I went for lunch with my friend who lives in Hong Kong. The ambiance of the restaurant makes for a unique experience. The restaurant was packed (mostly with older people who seem as though they've been coming here for ages) and you will likely have to... More

I've been here for dinner before and that was very good, but coming for dim sum is a very different experience. while dinner was relaxing, you don't come here for dim sum if you want to relax! Like a lot of dim sum houses in Hong Kong, there are communal tables, and we were lucky to get one tucked away... More

This place came highly recommended to have Dim Sum and did not disappoint. When you enter, they will sit you at any open table. You may need to share the table as we did as it was quite busy for lunch. Carts go around the restaurant and you pick the Dim Sum from them. We enjoyed the BBQ Pork Buns... More

Not for the unadventurous. You go in a seat where you can find a spot, this means sharing tables. They have carts going around, but you usually need to get up and get into the clumps of people that form to pick out your food. Think the trading floor on Wall St. The staff speaks a little English, but not... More

'You get what you get and you don't get upset' and you will enjoy this place. Minimal service (you seat yourself, you have to go grab (fight for!) your dim sum from the carts yourself), rude impatient speaking Cantonese waiters (even if you speak Cantonese, they know you are a foreigner and treat you more rudely!), you have to final...

It is a traditional Chinese restaurant with very old Chinese decor. Service is good, the dim sum is really amazing. However, it is so crowded that there was always a lot of customers

This is a traditional Yum Cha restaurant - crowded and noisy. If you want tablecloths, your own table and a quiet environment then this is not for you. A sign of good Yum Cha is that the locals eat there! And I think I was the only non-local. But I got the same service as everyone else. I found my... More

I'm all about trying the local cuisine and the "authentic" dimsum experience, but this place was a little bit too much for me. Too crowded. Questionable sanitary practices. Poor service. Waiters that couldn't speak English. Bus boys asking you to lift your feet (while you were eating!) so they could sweep under the table. Cleaning ladies mopping the floor with... More

The entrance of the restaurant seems to be authentic and old establishment. However, the good thing stops there! From the seating to cleaning tables with a piece of dirty and very sanitary poor towel or a piece of fabrics, no good impression from the sitting. Unless you have many people, you have to share a round table with many others!... 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. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
