“last trip”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

there was no service at all when we got there - except for the aircon which they were overdoing. when we asked for someone to come and take our order we were told that the man was coming - which meant the guy who had gone out to find a cardboard box for some take out orders or something. Well he came back in about 10 minutes and we got our order in - all in all it was 30 minutes freezing in there and we were the only customers bar one other table of 2.
the dim sum was fairly ok - soup was tasteless and some of the dumplings were hard. if it had been a 5 minute wait we probably could have understood it. i wonder what happens if they ever get a bunch of people coming in - how could they handle it? but i guess that is going to happen less and less if they keep this up.

“I'd like to like this place more”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

We typically take visitors here as it almost fits the bill as a great local dim sum restaurant. To be honest, though its always slightly disappointing. Th dim sum is pretty good. The decor is traditional (and so rather handsome). The air con on way too high (not that that is unusual).

The main issue for me is the service. Its relatively friendly, just slightly incompetent. On our most recent visit the dim sum came in batches and then stopped. We waited a while and then the lady came to clear the table. We pointed out we hadn't had all the dishes and they looked blank walked off and eventually a couple more arrived. All in all there was a gap in the middle of the meal of 30-40 mins and no apology. Then as we ate the stragglers the staff started to rearrange the furniture, collect crockery in a sink bowl etc which killed the atmosphere.

Its a shame as this place could be great if it smartened up its act a little.

“Good Food and Fast Service”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

I live near by to here so we often go here for dim sum at dinner time...it is always good...I worry about the shark fin all over the menu and that would be the only thing to put me off..the dumplings and the pork buns are yum

“Best Dim Sum in HK”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

We have been going to this restaurant for many years but recently the chef retired and the restaurant went through a metamorphosis with a new chef taking over. Its now back and I can say that the food is as good as ever. The menu has changed slightly with some of our favourites not being there any more but there are quite a few new varieties to tempt our palate. We've been back twice now and will be going back regularly as you can never get enough Dim Sum!

“was very good, now waiting to see”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

I heard that it re-opend recently? So, will have to check out the new place. In the past it was among the best places in HK to enjoy dim sum.
