Amazing food! Had lunch here today with a friend. We walked in without a reservation at 11:45am and they were busy with reservations but let us have the table for an hour until 12:45pm. We tried the jasmine tea, the mushroom and beetroot dumplings (outstanding),...shrimp dumplings, crispy eggplant, green beans, and egg fried rice. Everything was full of flavor and really delicious. Bill came to around HKD$600. Expensive but worth it. Atmosphere is nice, a little dark without any windows and the service was good. They cater to vegetarians nicely. Did not see any kids here. Restaurant was full of office workers from nearby buildings so it felt more of a business lunch type of place. Highly recommend the food and can’t wait to eat here again.More

Of all the restaurants at PP, it lacks Chinese dimsum. Dim Sum Library has landed in the right place because it is on the ground floor where most people will pass by. From the outside, it looks like a hip place for drinks with golden...birdcage inspired chairs. Inside, there is a lovely Oriental outlook with a twist of Shanghai. You will also find mahjong tables in the far back room and it feels like there is some Shanghai romanticism going on here. Went here for dinner and started with this refreshing orange and passionfruit mocktail containing real fruit juice and it had a good fizz too. This is what we ate. Black truffle hargau: Plump and springy hargau overloaded with black truffle and speckled with black truffle on the dumpling skin. Black garlic siumai: I got a surprise eating these because you will find chunky pieces of black garlic inside which give it a burst of sweetness. It jazzes up the siumai and makes it memorable. These crispy Hokkaido King crab and sea urchin spring rolls were luxurious as spring rolls are normally filled with vegetables or prawns. Looking like a radish puff it actually had melt in your mouth Wagyu beef inside with black pepper. The Dan dan xiaolong bau is a very spicy one. The Seared foie gras with osmanthus smoked coddled egg is going to be a popular one with that delicious runny egg yolk. I loved the presentation of the aubergines which looked like Jenga bricks and the coating would trick you into thinking it was tofu inside. The crispy aubergine was complimented nicely by the salted fish and Chinese chives on top. The Yunnan black truffle crispy skin chicken was sensational because it was boneless and this would definitely go down well with rice! The Iberico pork fried rice with sakura shrimps and fennel seeds was flavour overload for me because the sakura shrimps and fennel seeds had such complex flavours all coming out at the same time. For desserts we had Lava mango rolls topped with almond. The Lava chocolate mochi balls were the best because they are normally filled with boring peanut or sesame but chocolate works for meMore

Cool decor, approachable menu for English speakers, and the food - I've had a lot of dim sum in the US, and this put them all in the shade. It was so good, flavors I've never had before - I may never be able to...eat dim sum in the US again XD.More

A solo lunch the week of Chinese New Year here at Dim Sum Library. Excellent buns and dumplings. They has quite a few options from noodles to rice, but I stuck with the dim sum, and I was so pleased with it that I'll probably...return to try out their other dishes, and perhaps their buns, again. To drink, I ordered Blackened Rose Buds. With the coronavirus going around, I saw "fever" in their description saw it as a sign to order it :p Ketel One vodka infused with jasmine tea, rose, lemon and Fever-Tree tonic, it was served long with dried fruit. It was light and delicate, contrary to what I'd imagined, based on the description.  The table setting and decor was great, dark and chic.  Pictures on the blog - thevegetarianvoyagerMore

Came for lunch on a weekend and the place was busy but not super crowded. We were informed we had to give up our table after 1.5 hours, which was perfectly fine as we didn't have a large group. Ordered the Wagyu beef rolls and...Dan Dan Xiaolongbao, which were delicious; the turnip cakes which we were so excited about were disappointing - how can you mess up this classic dim sum staple? By making it soggy and greasy! We also tried the pumpkin soup (was okay) and Iberico ham fried rice (terrible - we couldn't go beyond two spoonfuls - not sure what kind of spices were used in this dish but we did not like it AT ALL, and was not as described on the menu). Staff came and went in a mad rush and did not try to make recommendations for us, or to also say maybe we've ordered too much or too little - they were just going through the motions of taking orders, delivering the food and taking plates away. They didn't even notice that the fried rice was pretty much untouched. We are mortified that we paid over 100USD for average dim sum in the land of dim sum! Won't be coming back.More

If you are staying in one of the mall hotels, this is a very nice choice to enjoy some excellent dim sum. The service feels a bit pushy, to get you ordering, eating and being on your way. But if you are prepared to deal...with it … it's a nice place to enjoy simple food among all the more formal eateries in this mall are.More
