We went here on the advice of locals - they were right! We went there shortly after midday and found a long line waiting to get in. We put our name on the list and grabbed a number and waited on the sidewalk outside like...everyone else. It took 1.5 hour to get seated, a time that we would not have waited except for the reputation of the place. Inside the place is small you may end up sharing a table with others. We got roast suckling pig and roast goose, both were excellent. Crispy skins, moist tender meat, subtle spicings - it was great. Note that you are expected to eat and leave, not dawdle over your food and enjoy a table after eating. If you can, consider buying your food as take-out to avoid the extreme waits that occur here. But it really is good enough to put up with some aggravation for!More

LONG wait. We waited 2 hours for a line that did not seem that long. Got on line at 1:45 p.m.; seated at 3:45. Small place. Delicious goose, roast pork. Is it worth the wait? there are probably other places where you get just as...good food without waiting. But it was pretty darn good. Walked by the next day at 11 -- there was a short line waiting for it to open at 11:30. That's probably your best bet.More

Kam's Roast Goose, a 1-star Michelin food outlet was highly recommended for its roast goose. After having patronized the outlet, I personally felt that it is overrated. The food was not exceptional at all and when the food was brought out, it looks very ordinary...nothing spectacular about its taste and the way it was being prepared. When we arrived at the outlet, there was already a long queue and we had to wait for more than an hour before getting our table. The table set up was so very cramp (hardly any space to move around) and very uneasy as we had to share with other diners as well. The environment has a kind of odour and an oily atmosphere that resembles a food court outlet. I would say cleanliness is questionable. However, surprisingly the roast goose was sold out by the time we get our table. We were fortunate to place an order while queuing up. There was hardly any other special choice of food other than the roast goose, barbecue pork and roast/steam chicken dishes. Even then, most of them were already sold out. In fact, we came specially for the roast goose which we heard so much of its specialty. It turns out to be very disappointing as compared to other outlets we have patronized. The service was also equally bad. The waiter and waitress seem to be too busy to really attend to your needs. Not very friendly and tactful as well. They do not have the patient to wait for our orders to be placed. Overall, the dinner we had in terms of the food ordered (including the roast goose) was not value for money. It was indeed a bad experience.More

THE GOOSE! This is what I was most excited to eat in Hong Kong and it did not disappoint. We went at lunchtime and waited about an hour to get seated. It's a very small place, so the wait really depends on how big the...groups are. We were just 2 so we got to skip a couple of large parties who had to wait longer. The goose is amazing! We tried the pork too and it was also amazing. Put this on your HK bucket list!More

You must honestly like roast goose to come here as the line begins BEFORE it even opens. The restaurants opens at 1130am and when we arrived at 11, the line was at least 20 meters long! The goose is good and the establishment has got...a good ambience. At least they treat guests with courtesy and not “chase” you, unlike Yat Lok which is a very terrible place to dine at.More

They have us the burnt/discarded/fatty pieces. Went back to complain and the manager and waiter gaslit us into thinking we ate half the food already but as you can see they didn’t give us much to begin with. Took a photo of other people’s food...and as you can see it looks much lighter and meatier than what we receivedMore

Excellent food coupled with super fast service. We frequent this place whenever we can and five star would be our usual review given the quality of food and speed of service. No frills and small cramp tables. It’s NOT a romantic place but a simple,...place for eating quality food. Obviously the signature roast goose is a must but all the roasts are excellent (char Sui, belly pork etc). The only drawback is the popularity - always have to queue even at less popular times (3pm) and the limited vegetable dishes (often one) but always good. Love this place. We will always return. Fabulous.More

Delicious roasted goose. I can see why this restaurant has been awarded a Michelin star. The goose is flavorful if not a little greasy but that only adds to the flavor.

During our recent visit to Hong Kong we made two attempts to eat at the famous Kam's Roast at Hennessey Road. The first time we visited, we followed the short queue outside the restaurant and was told later they had sold out all the roast...meat. The second time was the day after the major rainstorm, we were so thrilled to see that the restaurant was opened and lots of empty tables in there. The manager then told us we could only order takeaway as the wait staff didn't report to work due to the black storm warning. So we "da pao" one roast goose back to our hotel, which is nearby. The goose meat was sweet and juicy. It was excellent. It's a pity we couldn't dine in to try the other dishes.More

Small outlet on the top floor of Central World. If you like roast duck this is a must do. The place is busy and there is often a queue but wait times. Normally don’t exceed 15-30 minutes

Famous Michelin roast goose at Henessey Road Wan Chai. This is notably one of the best, if not the best in Hong Kong. The roast goose was so crispy yet very juicy. I really love the taste, spice & overall flavour were just right to...our liking. The place was crowded, seats & table were very close to each other. It is recommended to make up your mind what you want to order as they are a bit impatient to wait for people browsing the menu.More

After the pandemic and my first destination to HongKong, visiting Kam Roast is a MUST! Crispy fragrant skin, no odd goose “after smell” and good textured meat of the Roast Goose. The Roast suckling pig is out of the world! Their price is reasonable for...this quality compared with the “mature” stalls 😬 as their place is fairly medium size, they do not take reservations. There is always two queues : one for dinning in and one for take away. Facing the stall, on your right is take away queue. If you are taking their food back home, order in advance and collect on the day you are travelling.More

Situated within the mall, this restaurant boasts an impressive ambiance and stylish design. While the culinary offerings are undeniably well-executed, they may not possess an entirely unique character. Our party indulged in a variety of 7 to 8 dishes, with the roasted goose and charsiu...emerging as the standout selections. The service provided was consistently exceptional, characterized by a genuine and warm demeanor. Additionally, this establishment offers a range of commercially available products that can be conveniently procured and brought back to your home country.More

It was juicy and tasty in parts, other parts tough....6/10. The liver sausage seemed to be drowning in alcohol and tasted weird. The soup was ok. Service okMore

Yes... they do allow takeaway too. Separate q. Just go straight inside the restaurant. No need to join queue for dine-in.

Apologies for the delay in replying. Yes to credit cards but no to reservations. My advice is get there early, at least 30 minutes before the open, if you want to make the first sitting! It is well worth it.
