I rate this place 3.5 or Good but since there is no such category, I had to indicate very good.
I was there twice for breakfast over a period of 4 days because its near my hotel. Its definitely not your cleanest restaurants and crockery are also chipped etc, but that's just part of the food culture. They still have push-carts of dim sums. They have some items that one would not find back home so in terms of variety, its a lot more than Singapore. Eg the braised pig stomach in pepper was crunchy. The food is also reasonably priced.
As a Cantonese myself, I will come here over any Michelin-starred restaurants. The Hong Kong food culture is not sterile. Its a culture built up over generations. This applies also to the food that they served - which I cannot find however much I want to pay in Singapore.
The "Ma Lai Ko" here is one of the best I have ever tried. I must say I usually pass on this item during dim sum but a friend in our group wanted to try and it turned out to be so good that it was reason enough for us to return a few days later. The char siew here is also good.
Yes there are lots of other places in Hong Kong that's cleaner. But I would go back there for the atmosphere which is unmistakably Hong Kong. Everyone in my group enjoyed the food & experience.
