Noisy (but in a good way) and full of life, this restaurant is one of a chain. Staff were helpful but madly busy during lunch. However, waiting time to get in and for eating was shorter than expected and dumplings and soup noodles were very good - tasty and cheap. Good place to stop after the madness of shopping but...

Enjoyed lunch here. The food is as advertised and arrives quickly. Some of the dishes are quiet sweet, but the standard of steamed food is high.

Having lived in China, I can tell you that restaurants in malls are really more for Westerners than for the locals. Because of good reviews (and a love for Xiao Long Bao), we searched this place out. The service was average, and the food was fine. The lunch overall was nice enough, but, honestly, when in Rome, eat with the... More

It is a very good place for having lunch when you go visit Central. Located at the IFC mall. They serve tea every minute. The menu includes different dumplings, noodles and typical chinese dishes. A very good choice 👍🏻 Prices are very good, 100 HKD per person

We had a dinner and lunch here and found the food excellent and reasonably priced. On both occasions we were the only non-asians in the restaurant. Meets my rule "eat where the locals eat!" It's worth looking for - 4th floor of the WTC opposite the Excelsior hotel.

We went on a saturday afternoon armed with recommendations from known people. The xiao long bao lived upto its reputations. Out of sheer nostalgia and familiarity we ordered spring rolls. The spring rolls only come with pork filling. I have no taboos but the restaurant could be more flexible. I had enquired about spring rolls with other fillings and they... More

The staff were attentive and efficient. Didn't have to wait long to be seated. Tea was served when we sat down. The food was fabulous. Enjoyed the experience.

A good place to have a good dinner. The service and choice of food is ok. Time to have a good relaxing chat is possible and you can easily enjoy the food. I will go back when I am back in HK

Popped in here for a quick lunch, and was utterly surprised and delighted. LOVED the Xiao Long Bao, and the noodle and veggie dishes were also outstanding. Quick service, great prices - highly recommend.

We visited this restaurant several times during our stay in Hong Kong. There were many locals and the ambiance was great. Like in several restaurants they serve hot tea while you are waiting for the food you ordered. Even the vegetables have a delicious creamy taste. The prices are moderate too. I highly recommend this restaurant.
