I can't tell what makes excellent tea, but the dim sum here is fantastic - I visited 3 times in the week I was in HK (during which time I hit nearly every other major vegetarian eatery in HK). The menu seems to change somewhat each day. You need to select a tea to order the dim sum. I honestly... More

We were met at the door with a warm jasmine green tea and a most wonderful, pleasant and knowledgeable lady. We sampled many teas and were explained where each comes from, how the leaves are picked as well as when and how the local people drink it. It was a great experience, which we all quite enjoyed. I do recommend... More

We recently stopped by the Lock Cha Tea House in Hong Kong Park and had a very nice visit. There is a wide variety of quality teas to try and some nice dim sum orders that you can sample in the traditional Cantonese style tea house. This makes a very nice compliment to the a visit to the Flagstaff House... More

It's inside the HongKong park, near the restaurant. They have a whole booklet of menu dedicated to different kinds and flavours of tea. They only serve vegetarian food and menu is limited. Jasmine sesame ball is a must try.

Whether you're channeling the Lonely Planet and travelling alone or with friends and family, this is a really good place to see some classic Chinese interior design (it's made to look like a classic tea house). The servers are very well educated on the vast amounts of tea available making it easier to choose teas to suite your taste. The... More

This tea house is inside Hong Kong Park, so far the tea is ok but to my opinion the dim sum is very lousy. The price is very expensive, we wil visit the park but not this tea house.

This place is located in the heart of hong kong park which is a completely gorgeous park, but the tea shop itself is fantastic. It's done in traditional style and the dim sum is really good - they also have a lot of great veggie options. If you go there, you should definitely try their sesame seed dessert dimsum (i... More

This is a really interesting and fun place. Be prepared for an enormous menu of tea - you could spend weeks trying them all. As a vegetarian I loved being able to choose anything from the menu. The food and service were excellent and the surroundings are very conducive with relaxing either in the middle or end of the day.... More

We actually ordered one of everything on the menu (much to the surprise/horror of the wait staff), with a few exceptions everything was delicious. They only serve vegetarian food, but we didn't miss meat and poultry. I would avoid the corn & carrot soup, not worth it. The tea is delicious. I would highly recommend.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
