Super tasty dishes! We tried the shrimp and pork dumplings as well as the deep fried shrimp and BBQ pork buns. All of which were delicious!

Knowing it was a Michelin starred restaurant without hefty price tag, it was more than expected. Although it is not like the old dim sum restaurants where the food carts rolled out, all the dim sum dishes were delicious and interesting. We got there around 10:45 AM on Sunday morning, and we were seated without waiting. When we finished our... More

After seeing Tripadvisor comments we headed to Tim Ho Wan at the Olympian City Mall to try the BBQ pork buns. OMG, these are absolutely fantastic, believe everything you read or hear. We ordered a wide range of dishes which were very tasty. The sticky rice in lotus leaf was great too. We got there early for lunch, walked straight... More

Over-crowded, rush service, mediocre dim sum. If you are serious about dim sum, skip this one and go to a restaurant with a full dim sum menu. Not going back!

We went at three in the afternoon and there was no line up but we had to share a table. The food was not as good as other restaurant but the price was right. We had dishes for $187 HKD the best dish was the Char Sui boas. The person who takes your money was not friendly at all.

Unbelievably, this is a one star Michelin restaurant. Very busy and basic with waitresses who speak little English. Mixture of ex-pats and locals.The food is mainly dim sum with other stuff. Pork buns are the thing to have. They are somewhat weird as the bun is sweet......wasn't all that keen. We took our own wine (allowed). We were 4 good... More

Very disappointed, waited for 60mins in the queue at this outlet, in order to have to share a table with 3 other groups, and have raw siew mai. I've had enough dimsums from enough authentic places to know this was not worth the hype at all. Try another outlet but be prepared to wait for a while

My first ever review of any restaurant and I have to say it was a awesome eating experience, all items were on point and so good. Please is packed and a bit of a waiting line to get in but lucky for us we was invited straight in. BBQ pork buns a must try!

My husband visited the original noodle shop when it first opened a number of years ago now. We just wanted a simple early supper and Tim Ho Wan was the place. We found the site light, clean and comfortable with a pleasant selection of dishes. We were immediately given an English order sheet and provided with tea. We had steamed... More

Unquestionably one of the best values in town. Everything was exceptional and the service was quick and cheerful. Friendly stuff complements well the casual dining experience.

Thank Marios C
