I came here twice for breakfast. The food is good, but it can be a slightly overwhelming experience. My husband and I seemed to be the only non-locals. The staff was friendly and seated us and brought us a card with pictures of the food with their name in English. It does seem like you seat... read more

Saw a lot of locals getting into a lift so we joined them. On the third floor, there is an old style yum cha restaurant ( some of the staff have probably been there for 30 to 40 years. As it was about 3pm, the restaurant was only about 75% full. We were shown to our table and asked what... More

I normally go to this restaurant every time I visit family in Hong Kong. The food here is traditional (obliviously) and is full of flavour. I advise you to visit the 3rd floor for lunch as you will see the dim sum carts being pushed around where you food comes to you instantly. They stamp your card and you pay... More

We enjoyed the morning dim-sum at London Restaurant (3rd Floor) within walking distance from Mongkok MTR. It's really refreshing to experience the morning tea time immersed in the local culture. Folks are regular patrons of this place - the "manageress" knew each of the regulars by their names. Old folks going through the daily newspapers at their own pace -... More

This is the second tea house during our stay in Hong Kong. We came at about 10 am. The restaurant is on the second floor and was quite clean considering the area. The food were pushed on a cart and so you can ask them to open the lid to see what kind of food it was. The people were... More

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

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
