Came here after all the hype. Didn't find it much better then the Dim Sum we get back home in San Diego. However it was still really good. Would come again but if there was a long line would go elsewhere. Everything we had was good.

Nice, clean place. Everything we tried was good, especially the glutinous rice. Not as extensive a menu as other dim sum places I've tried and not quite as good as others either, but since the whole meal came in under £10 for two people it's definitely great value and worth a visit.

I go to the North Point restaurant on 2/8 wharf road. can be hard to find as signage in Chinese. it's opposite a school with a Vietnamese restaurant next door. A sure sign anywhere you travel is that when the venue is packed with locals then it's going to be good. Very basic restaurant, limited English however that adds to... More

We went to the one in Causeway Bay early and did not have to wait, food was delicious. Was,not too crazy about the char Sui bao, liked the old fashioned steamed ones better. But they were good anyway. When we left there was a queue, so get there early If you don't want to wait. Everything was good.

Absolutely the best BBQ pork buns ever. Fast friendly service, and very reasonable prices. Try everything. Menus in English or Cantonese.

A little tricky if you don't know what to do, but rock up get an english menu, fill it in - take your time and don't forget the chicken feet, give it to the server and he/she will give you a number. Simply stunning food.

My boyfriend and I had read about Tim Ho Wan before our trip to Hong Kong and made sure we had a day free to go there for dim sum. We went to the Olympian City branch, and had to queue for about 10 minutes (it was 12.30pm...get there at midday or before if you don't want to queue!). Whilst... More

Dont bother having your meal here. its not worth the nasty treatment from the staff. They treat you like you are there for a free meal. 1)If you miss your q no, you will be"punished" by their deliberate arrogance ie. u wait longer 2)The wait staff will "dumped" your food on your table. No space for your eating bowl. 3)... More

Quite easy to find after they shifted to Olympian Mall. It's behind the concierge exit door on the left. The place is modern, good lights and atmosphere. It is no longer the $18 average that I know but $24 depends on what you eat. We took the famous pork bun, shrimp dumpling, pork dumpling, congee n etc. The pork bun... More
