Looking for a place where you can order your Dim Sum (Yum Cha) by pointing to the food on trolleys. It's an experience to enjoy and chill. Let your kids soak up the atmosphere. You can look before you order the food. The food is piping hot and freshly cooked. Try the Har Kow, Sui Mai, for starters. The rest... More

Enjoyed the lunch at their Airport outlet just after arrival. We were quickly taken to our table and service was prompt. As the place is spacious, one doesnt feel there is a crowd or too noisy. Perfect lunch venue for after arrival or before departure. The goose and century eggs were better than expected, the goose was tender and tasty.

Waited for over 30 minutes for someone to take my order, food was mediocre at very best. Prices were extremely high for the quality of food and service.

City Hall building had no clear signages from the MTR. food wise, Dim sum was extremely expensive for food that doesn't taste good. cheong fun skin was thick, push carts were not making their rounds regularly. I had to walk around to look for the items I wanted.... More

I came here with my wife and her parents for yum cha at 11am on a Monday. We arrived about 10:50am and there was already a line. They opened the doors and everyone walked went in and grabbed any open table. The room was really big with a lot of tables, but it quickly filled up and before you knew... More

A great place for dim sums. The ingredient used is fine and the cooking method shown a very experienced and thorough chef effort. Cozy environment and first time seeing using westerner tea pot and cup for Chinese tea. If you want great Hong Kong dim sum, this is the place. It is conveniently located at central nearby to the pier.... More

Really delicious dim sum. All fresh and tasty but do allow time because you have to wait for trolleys to come round with something you like and some times it can take a while, plus, you end up eating too much, because you see the food and want to try everything. The room is very elegant, nicely decorated but it... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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 late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
