“Roast Goose & Century Egg are must haves.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

I think it's been said many times over already, but if you're there, order the roast goose & century eggs, they are on another league of Cantonese cuisine. Sure it's pricier than your average HK restaurant, but it is justified by the quality of ingredients and cooking. Went with a group of 6 and spent about $150 ordering those dishes and some others so it's not that bad. Would come again, but in a group.

“Best Roast Goose in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Yung Kee Restaurant is famous for its roast goose for many years therefore is a must for this restaurant. The roast goose is served in right temperature and very delicious. The century egg as the starter is very tasty and one should try with the ginger. The steam fish is excellent but a bit pricey and I would suggest you take the steam prawns instead. Roast pig is also good to try. The service is excellent however you might expect to wait awhile if you didn't book the table in advance. During lunch time, you may also try some of the dim sum which are very good especially the wonton. After the meal, you may walk around the Lan Kwai Fong area for a drink and enjoy the night life of Hong Kong.

“Yummy roast goose”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

It was fortunate for our group to be seated right away when we got there and the staff were welcoming and attentive surprisingly. Of course we ordered their roast goose and it aurely didn't disappoint. The steam egg white dish was also good. The white chicken BBQ pork were also quite ok. It is highly recommended to try this if you have extra money from shopping.

“Very nice food but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Went here for a dim sum and roast pork brunch on Sunday.

Food was excellent and was reasonable value (about £35 for two people which seems OK given the quality and location).

The staff and service were excellent and made us feel welcome through out.

Only slight disappointment after ordering was noticing they serve shark fin soup which in this day and age isn't really acceptable (though is sadly still very much common place in Hong Kong).

“Good food but rather pricey. Century egg and roast goose is a must...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Food quality here is pretty good. Very nice ambience and I suspect, thats what you also pay for! Roast goose and century egg is a must! Very good, but perhaps a little over hyped. There are cheaper places to eat with similar quality roast goose but you can't beat the service and ambience here.
