“Don't be fooled by the name”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Doesn't even stand close to Hong Kong cuisine.
The mee is dry and taste weird
Duck meat is very old n dry
The Hong Kong chilli paste to salty
Don't waste your time by coming here.

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

Recently went to this restaurant's branch in 1Borneo. Although the place was busy, the staff was fast and friendly. We ordered a typical Chinese meal (soup, veggies, beef, chicken) which was served quickly. All dishes were freshly cooked and takes good. The prices are quite reasonable and we will return there.

“Hong Kong style cha chaan teng”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

It's an attempt to mimic the Hong Kong cha chaan tengs with an extended menu to cover cooked food so as to provide a complete meal. I've tried their HongKong style beverages like milk tea and ginger coke and both do not match those served in Hong Kong. The cooked food is also mediocre. I would say that it is just a place to satisfy your hunger and you will leave with no lingering memories of the meal. Gam Tong is a unique offering and there is nothing like this nearby. If you haven't been to Hong Kong, give this place a try.
