Authentic food not expensive

We stumbled over this place by chance. Looked bright and clean and was filled with locals. The food was great but the waiters were very unsmiling. None the less we ate well and I would recommend the restaurant to others.

We came across the place by accident. Great HK diner atmosphere, limited menu but good Cantonese cuisine. Not the place for an intimate romantic meal, but if you want tasty, good quality and good sized portions served in typical HK in-your-face fashion, it is hard to beat.

One of Hong Kong's better known snake soup restaurants, its signature dish is truly delicious, probably the best of its kind in Hong Kong. We went there for lunch recently. The weather still not cool enough for the snake soup, we ordered water snake congee instead, with preserved liver sausage, white chicken, Singaporean fried rice noodles, and sweet green bean...

This was one of the worst dining experiences of my life! We came for the snake soup and ended up with this porridge like crap in a bowl with absolutely zero flavour. Apparently asking for snake soup but pointing to the wrong one results in getting that instead of the waitor just confirming what you want. We also had sausage... More

Was brought for dinner by local colleagues one evening. Had the goose. Snake soup. Sweet sauce Fish slices. Clay pot sausage rice. Food is authentic and local and delicious! I came back the following night to get goose rice and a soup. Superb! Well worth the effort if you are around central and looking for a good local eatery!

The food was tasty (inclusive snake) and the atmosphere very nice, authentic and different from my home in Denmark. Fair prices. However, caused by excessive air conditioner an icy polar wind was blowing. Menu cards were very greasy.

It is a simple Chinese restaurant featuring snakes and Cantonese food. The snakes dishes are very nice. The food quality is good. However, the price is not cheap. If you are in Central, it is good to have meals there.

There are numerous restaurants scattered around the island which used to be my childhood favourites. Ser Wong Fun is one of them. Those were the days when they still keep fresh snakes in the shop and I always watched with fascination mixed with fear when they expertly snatched a snake out, sliced through its belly to get the gall bladder...

The restaurant service is good . The snake taste like Chicken and it is hard to tell. Still, a good experience.

Ser Wong Fun is famous for its snake dishes. The restaurant does offer other dishes without snakes. I cannot believe that Ser Wong Fun is so good when my wife told me about it. Her Hong Kong friends brought her there for dinner and she kept talking about it since. We ordered the bbq meat, soy chicken, sweet-sour pork and... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
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.
