Went there for dinner. The food was excellent, typical Cantonese style. Low prices and very friendly staff. I can absolutely recommend it!

This is a well-known street hawker that serves the best porky bun (chi pa pau) and milk tea (si mut lai cae) in Hong Kong. This place is always crowded by both locals (weekdays) and tourists. The staff are very efficient, however, rather impatient hence...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

Hi there, I am visiting Hong Kong this September and read some reviews for Lan Fong Yuen. I read somewhere that there is a minimum spend in the restaurant. Is this true? I really would just try the milk tea because we have a plan to have lunch somewhere else. Thank you!
