I took children and we ordered a variety of dishes. The prawn dumplings were excellent as were the pork rice paper rolls. Just be aware that it is cash only.

had the pork buns which were average and overly sweet. Rice was average. prawn dumplings had thick rubbery wraps that should be fine and melt in your mouth and the killer dish was the pork and prawn dumplings as the texture made us actually gag...More

a small little menu on a chit, cramped tables, harried staff. The food is NEXT level, strongly suggest ordering the whole menu and you will finish it. This is dimsum heaven. The prices are inversely proportional to food quality.

We were so excited to visit this place while in Hong Kong. What a dreadful and upsetting experience. After spending $60aus on takeaway lunch, we were given the wrong order. Due to food allergies we were unable to eat it. The cashier, manager and kitchen...More

We ordered several dishes including the famous pork buns and all were very average. While the food was fine and very affordable, the service was atrocious! I have never felt so unwelcome. Waiters literally throwing a pen at us to order with, and dumping food...More

Cash is always preferred. In general, it's hard to find shops (especially small ones) that take credit/debit/charge card. I could only use my bank card in a supermarket like ParkNShop or at an ATM. Some shops & restaurants... More
