100% where the locals love dim sum

Huge and always crowded restaurant in the heart of Nathan Road. Don't be thrown off by the name, it's 100% where the locals eat. The dim sum is absolutely fresh, very reasonable prices but no English speaking staff so you have to improvise and point to the pictures. Try the roasted goose it's... read more

Big restaurant with many seats and round tables. Good for large group of people. I saw one table with over 12 people. Dim sum is good. I havent got a chance to try their roast goose/barbecue pork/deep fried chicken but will do next time.

Every time I visit HK I go to this restaurant for many times. We either have dim sum for brunch or just dinner. My grandmother has been a customer for many years. I love their dim sum and the old fashion way of "selling" dim sum. Prices are reasonable too. I would recommend this restaurant.

Had a enormous dinner because of a memorial dinner with more than 50 people, accommodated about 6 tables in a room, which was good. The food was amazing, the Roast Pig was crunching and the soup was good. The other foods were also excellent. The service was also excellent, the waiters offered me the last bowl of soup that we...

The restaurant was within walking distance to our Mongkok holiday rental apartment. Being near noon time on a weekday, it was considered busy. Service was good as we were being seated fast. But food or dim sum need to wait or ordered at the counter. It was an interesting experience to have Hong Kong dim sum amidst the local. The... More

This restaurant is filled with a mix of locals and visitors, and is pretty packed on weekends. The service is not very tolerant of non-locals, however, which is sadly all too typical of many HK mainstays in recent years. Some of the staff were polite, but a few barked at us (to be fair, the normal operating volume here might... More

Came here as I wanted a restaurant I could pronounce the name of, just was getting a bit brain fried with the Chinese names of elsewhere. The food was good, service ok and the bill as expected, can recommend for a quiet evening meal.

Hidden away above Nathan Road this gem of a restaurant provides a welcome break away from the crowds and shops. A large bustling traditional style restaurant that serves excellent Cantonese food at reasonable prices. The food is quickly prepared and served with a good choice of chicken, duck and fish dishes (the fish can be chosen from the tank) from... More

The map is incorrect. It is actually across the street from the point on the map. The food is no doubt local but the dim sum quality is way below what I am used to back home. too much floor in the wraps although the fillings were flavorful. Came during lunch time so manage to see other customers ordering fried... More
