The food is very nice and the price is average.
However, you have to make a booking especially for more than 4 people.

We love going to shark fin house for a Hong Kong dim sum experience, a little taste of home. Delicious dumplings and always good value.

Booked a table for 10 for a weekday lunch and service was quick and efficient. As usual, delicious dumplings and lots of tea. One of the best in town.

This is a pretty busy restaurant in the middle of Chinatown. We went for a late lunch and the place was still crowded. The dimsum choices were quite predictable but good and tasty. We also ordered some dishes from the menu. The prawn dish was delicious but the more expensive abalone and shark fin dishes were underwhelming. The service was less than attentive but quite typical for restaurants of this kind. I would recommend sticking to dimsum as the dishes from the menu were not consistently good. I would avoid the abalone.

Fresh tasty Tim sum . Especially the glutinous rice. Can get very crowded during lunch and weekends. Do make reservation.
