Nothing special

This place has crazy queues as it supposedly came up with Hong Kong's milk tea as we know it. The food is actually fine and the milk tea is as it should be, rich, sweet and with condensed milk. But all this you can get at any Hong Kong cha chaan teng. Crowded with locals and tourists, you... read more

Love the food there and the price is very reasonable. For a set meal of marcaroni soup, eggs n hotdogs and famous milk tea it only cost me less than HKD40. The staffs are friendly, and I can't speak cantonese so I spoke in mandarin, and they are still very smiley in their reply.

I've only been here for drinks (milk tea, coffee, lemon coke), so can't speak to the food inside (other reviews do this). The milk tea is exactly what Hong Kongers who live overseas dream about: thick, rich, the right balance. I agree with mpenzakc that you could just get the take-out milk tea and enjoy it on your walk around... More

The minimal spending in the shop is HKD25 per person. We ordered a breakfast set which came with Pineapple bun and milk tea. The waiter did give us time to look at the menu before we made our order, noticing we were not locals. The food was nice but the service was so-so.

Just buy the take-out iced milk tea which is awesome! Currently priced at HKD20. It's an photogenic spot too being on a slope.

This was well worth the visit and hype - simple and comfort food with great flavors. Loved the pork bun while the pork chop noddles were a flop due to the sauce on top - guess we ordered wrong and should have asked for a dry one. All in all - well worth a visit!

It was crowded as usual, and we waited for about 15 minutes. The waiter was impolite and gave us extremely "black face" while we were ordering food. 蔥油雞撈麵with a milk tea costs me $49, the noodles is terrible but milk tea is nice.

Again we came upon this famous landmark through our food tour guide and too, was a great favourite for me. I must admit when I sipped on the milk tea it took me back to my younger days, when the use of carnation milk was sometimes all that was available. It's worth watching the tea maker in action brewing and... More

If you don't like very busy and noisy places where the service is not great, don't go here! I also wouldn't take kids who expect a McD or so. We love the food and that is something to bear in mind; it is an eating experience. From local perspective and flavor. And you order and get food, you are not... More

Had lunch here this afternoon with my fiancee and friend. We couldn't get into a local teahouse so we found Lan Fong Yuen while wondering around the area. There was a 10 minute wait on the street outside to get in. The waiter spoke enough english we could order easily, and he was pretty funny! The food was not amazing,... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
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.
