The food is really tasty, they have a good variety of food, everything is fast, well presented and impeccable! It's hard to find it because it's inside the metro station (level G). Long queue but very fast.

Excellent food for such a cheap price. To order fill out the card then raise your hand with the card in it.

Very organised despite the long queue. Very much worth the wait as the dim sum was incredible. Highly recommend. We couldn't believe how reasonable it was too.

I personally don't recommend this restaurant. I don't understand how it's a Michelin 1 star restaurant. The food is not that great. I'd rather go to other dimsum places. It's too crowded and you have to wait for a long time but it's not worth...More

Waited in the queue for 30 mins. The food was mediocre and average at best. Went there because of the great reviews. Definitely overrated. Worst dim sum experience ever.

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
