Its location has changed over the years but the atmosphere has stayed the same. It's the last of the old-style Hong Kong tea houses with a decor that is reminiscent of the inter-war years. When I first came here many years ago it was affordable...More

This is a traditional Hong Kong dim sum restaurant. The food is prepared like what it is in the older days - above average taste but not delicately done. It is over priced though. The service is old style and acceptable to me. In short,...More

Banished to third floor purgatory. Seated by the kitchen even when not busy and wouldn't move us. Not friendly. Slow service. Expensive by Hong Kong standards. Dumplings pretty good.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
