This is a famous restaurant for snake but we had a lovely goose instead. Goose was excellent, crispy skin and not too much fat. Delicious congee and wonton soup noodles. Did not have a chance to eat clay pot rice but will return next time to try those dishes. Grouchy waiter but excellent food.

Ser Wong Fun lives up to her reputation of serving one of the best, if not the best, snake broth in Hong Kong. The restaurant is filled to the brim with office workers at lunchtime on weekdays. When we revisited the place at mid afternoon on a Saturday, we did not have to wait for a table and there was... More

This restaurant is just off the Mid-Levels Escalator. The popular items the locals order are the claypot rice dishes with the Chinese sausage and snake soup. These dishes were only average in my opinion. Prices are a little expensive in comparison to other restaurants.

I love chinese SOUP ! I need soup to nourish my system. And I found the soup that I love in Ser Wong Fun. They serve a wide range of soup and they are so tasty. You can order other Chinese dishes here but I stop here specially for soup.

It is price average restaurant, and you have a deep variety of good dishes very delicious. Great service. Located near the longest automatic scalier in the world and after dinner you just walk 5 minutes to get into a bar area.

I went twice to this restaurant last Ma; I really enjoyed eating there. Even if its price is a little bit expensive compared to other siilar restaurants, its quality is fine. You can eat many Cantonese dishes. I specialy recommend the snake soup and the snake congee. The tea is free, the waiters keep pouring it every time you empty... More

Went for a quick lunch on a Saturday to see if all the positive comments we heard were justified. Cashier 'greeted' us with a snarl and told us to pick a table, very 'nose in the air' waiter came and threw 2 menus down. Food arrived quickly, and for the price and quality, frankly going to any number of local... More

I had the opportunity of eating a light lunch in this restaurant last year and every now and then i would go back to the picture of the "snake soup" that i took. By looking at it, it gives me flashbacks of the taste and heat of the soup. The taste of the snake meat in the soup tastes like... More

It is always praised by the media. Maybe all those press releases are paid. When we visit one day, we have to pay 100% price marked on menu, but what the quality we received is only 50%. We are discriminated and would therefore like to draw visitor / patron attention to think deeply before your visit. Besides, the restaurant is... More

We have been to this restaurant following lonely planet advice. It is a typical restaurant located in hk central closed to the mid level escalators. The most famous dish is mixed snakes soup, which is the first dish in the menu. We tried it and it was worhted! Highly reccomended also for other cantonese dishes.
