We wanted a place that serves dim sum on push cart. Did a quick search on openrice, google and tripadvisor and found this place near our hotel. We were there at about 8:30 am on Tuesday and the restaurant was already very crowded. There was no reception counter at the lobby on 3rd floor. The persons who went to the... More

Went to this restaurant with family members. Staff were rude, and after complaining to a manager, played ignorant and unapologetic! Pathetic service, poor food, don't go!

This restaurant has many different dishes! They serve it as they are ready in an efficient way, despite a very large area that is always full with people. You might end up in 10-15 minutes waiting to get a table, but it is worth it. Sometimes the popular dishes are sold out, but you can always find something else. The... More

The service was really bad. The food was extremely slow and the taste was marginal at best. Total came to HKD225 for two. Really over the top for what we had (just food, and no drinks despite a beer rep coming to the table every 5 minutes asking us to buy). It did seem like the local families seated around... More

The dim sum is great. There is no waitress to guide you to the seats unless you have 4 or 10 people. If you have less than that , they will ask you to go and find your own seat. They will prepare a pot of tea and give you an order card. Then you can start walking around to... More

I've been reading abt the reviews & we were a little apprehensive becos non of us could read traditional chinese. But decided to step in anyway. We were pleasantly surprised that there are 2 levels to choose from. Level 4 is where you must read, level 3 is where we choose from the push carts. And they are very nice... More

We were pretty unhappy here- we literally came in, had 4 lousy dumplings, and decided to leave. The total came to more than 10 USD- ridiculous! Also not much help for foreigners- I realize this is part of an "authentic" experience, but it's nice to feel a little bit welcome.

This place is large, really large, covering two floors of the same building (though I think the trolleys only go around the third). It's busy and it's noisey. Also, as happened to me today, you might have to share a table, but I'm used to this from the Wan Tai (at the Staples Corner Wing Yip) in London. To take... More

There are lots of places to enjoy delicious dim sum in Hong Kong. Restaurants that employ “trolly dollies,” or female workers that push carts of steaming dim sum to their patrons are disappearing fast, and London Restaurant is one of the few that maintain this dying art of service. The London is on the second floor of an office building... More
