The food was fine. The service was ok. The line for this place is long but it moves fairly quickly. They are very efficient. When you are in line, you choose what you want to order. Once you sit down, they take your order form....More

But we are not massive fans of dim sum! We ordered way too much as well! Between two of us we ordered 6 dishes but I would say 4 is more than enough. The shrimp dumplings and pork bun were amazing. Service was super quick...More

BBQ pork buns are superb - worth the 30min wait alone. The guy marshalling the queue was very helpful - if you are dining alone let him know and you get to skip the queue if they have a single seat come free. This is...More

We arrived at around 2pm and there was a very long queue, they give you your menu ticket in the queue to fill out so it’s ready to give to them as soon as you’re seated which is handy. Despite the long queue it was...More

No trip to Hong Kong is complete with a visit to Tim Ho Wan... Highly recommend the BBQ Pork Buns, the prawn dumplings, the glutinous rice and egg cake. The two of us had way more food than we could comfortably eat and got change...More

We went for our dinner around 7:15 and waited for 20 mins before getting into the restaurant. The food was delicious, specially the baked pork bun. The total bill for us was 150 hkd for 7 dishes. We will definitely back to enjoy the dim...More

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
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
