Our eventful trip to find this place was definitely worth it! Despite the language barrier and having to ask several people for directions, when we were served our dim sum choices, all the hassle was forgotten! The flavor and texture of each kind of dumplings we ordered was heavenly. Even my picky-eater daughter couldn't get enough of the deep fried... More

one of the best at a reasonable price. go to the one at Olympic station or Central for a better ambience and hygienic environment. Must try Dim Sum include the roasted pork bum, chicken feet and poo. you will not regret these exotic experience if you live to tell the tale!

Whenever I pass by this restaurant, especially during lunch time, I always see a long queue with dozens of people waiting for a seat. A friend has waited for nearly an hour to get in to have a basket of char siu bao (roasted pork in a bun). I rather buy a few pieces of desserts at an outside counter.... More

Maybe I am not the best to judge. I hate food with a gooey texture and everything I ordered (vermicelles roll, steamed bean curd, vegetables dumplings) was gooey. Cannot recommand to go there. Din Tai Fung was way better.

The restaurant itself is not very fancy....but the food is good, but not very special in my opinion, and low priced. Of course I tried the BBQ pork buns. Good especially when you like sweet food.

THW is renowned for the good Michelin standard of good food. The plus point is it's not expansive either! We ordered 8 items and with tea services and all, it comes up to HK$175! This is the cheapest restaurant meal we had. The usual fare for dim sum, though my personal favorite is the steamed rice, where the rice is... More

We went to the restaurant in the Olympian Centre. There is construction outside the door and you must actually leave the mall through a dodgy looking door following signs for the "Food Garden." The pork buns are incredible, but otherwise food is average. No alcohol or beer is served. Lots of families with children. Service is fine and food is... More

We were recommended this restaurant so decided to try it. There was a long queue but don't be put off by this. It moves really quickly. While you are waiting in the queue you fill in a sheet of paper with your order. This is taken off you when you are shown your seat. Do not expect a table for... More

The world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant? You bet it is! Whereas my family usually pays $50-60 USD for a full dim sum meal anywhere in Houston, we paid only less than $30 USD equivalent in this legendary dim sum restaurant. It's not only cheap, but it's also good! My only gripe despite it being ridiculously cheap is that the classic dim... More
