That is all I can say... good milk tea. Portions of the food are super small and the price is not cheap. The thing they call burger was a sad little toasted bun with a patty smaller than the diametre of a coke can! With the tea it cost HK$50?!?! I really don't get the hype...

Went to this restaurant for breakfast in Aug2015. The pineapple bread is really nice. I like the milk tea the most.

Get here for a solid breakfast of Hong Kong style French Toast and Milk Tea. The clientele was a mix of tourists and locals over the 2 visits I made. Cost $43 HKD.

Generally recognized by the local for its hk style milk tea and the invented "lo ding" (lo-mein but with Japanese instant noodles instead), it has been able to maintain the standard and taste throughout the time. "lo ding" is delicious, but its green onion sauce was very oily. I would eat it for lunch only so I have the rest... More

Pork Chop Bun is the classic dish and must try when you visit. It is not the place for you to stay long or to catch up with friends, but overall a worthing trying place if you visit Hong Kong.

They get u in but quite reluctant to take orders, regardless of the abandon number of staff. They have minimum charge, just a place for tourist.

Relying on Google Map and Smartphone location services in this part of Hongkong was a bad idea to try and find this small HK coffee shop, famous with the locals for the best Hongkong Milk Tea. The buildings and narrow streets blocked out most of the GPS signal, and our 7 minutes walk uphill, became another 5 minutes then another... More

Came to experience the rave and was not disappointed. The milk tea was smooth and fragrant, pork bun was good. Like most popular eatery, you sit just 3 inches away from sweaty stranger during summer. Staff efficient but not rude

Just visited this place and I don't understand the complaints from other reviewers. It is an authentic place, with very hardworking staff (mainly older people) who do their best to serve the customers. Nothing more, nothing less. As there were also local HK customers I guess the main business isn't to serve tourists who don't speak the local language, but... 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.
