From a food perspective, I loved the custard bun so much and the price was reasonable for the area. Staff has a generally unhelpful attitude and spoke English very fast with very strong accents which was difficult for non-locals (us). The menu has quite a...More

Excellent food and service. The Dimsums are excellent as good as any place in South China mainland. The other dishes assorted but traditionally Chinese cuisine and presentation. Worth a visit anytime of the day

Hard to choose as all dishes look different from what I'm used to, but I recommend the dumplings and vegetables. Do not recommend the rice soup, as it doesn't taste much!

This is one of the worst taste dim sum food restaurant that are only interested in making tourists money.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
