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.

Get there early they said, use the app they said. Turns out doing either isn't easy - the trek from the metro is not much fun and the app is impossible to find. Don't get caught out going to the cafe on the first floor, it's the place with the huge queue outside on the second floor you want. The... More

If you have a lot of time to kill, this is tye place to be for some nice dim sum. The wait is usually very long but the food is excellent. Variety is one of the best in Hong Kong and is very tasty. The downside is that this is not a cheap place to eat. But if you love... More

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.

Beautiful surroundings and views - food good but not as good as some little much less comfortable places. A haven before or after a must-do visit to the nearby Maritime Museum.

If you are in HK and you want dim sum, this is the place to go to! Massive place and they do not take reservations. There is a long queue, averaging 45 minutes to an hour, but the wait is worth it! The dim sum comes around in these carts and you have to be quick to hail down the... More

We arrived just after 9 on Sunday morning and got a table right away. After maybe half an hour or less people started to wait, so getting there early is a must. The food was so tasty! The carts went around regularly, they had signs in English and Chinese, and the tea was also good, with lots of water refills.... More

A very colonial setting, but with a very original dim sum experience, with all varieties. The mango pudding was amazing

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.
