Good BBQ pork and Steam chicken. Come for the food

Have lunch twice here this week. Love their bbq pork and steam chicken on rice without sauce (sauce too fat!). Deeeelicious!!!!! Place is crowded during lunch time (1215pm to 145pm). Come early to find a good spot. Upstairs is better. You come for the food not really for the service.

This place may not look like much, but it serves the best Char Sui pork I've found in Hong Kong. Just ask for Char Sui Fan (BBQ Pork with rice)... THEY HAVE MOVED PREMISES FROM 5 GAGE STREET, AND ARE NOW ON QUEEN VICTORIA STREET!

They have transferred to 12 queen victoria st. One of the best suckling pig and char siew Ive tasted. No wonder Anthony Bourdain was all praises for this place. The new location was cleaner and in a nicer more accessible alley.

I bought the BBQ pork and the Roast pork. Sold by weight. Prices are reasonable. The meat looks and smells nice. The meat tasted good, juicy and tender. This shop is popular among the locals as well as tourists. It is also located close to the famous traditional dim sum restaurant Nian Hiang. Meat is best when eaten warm with... More

You come here only for the food... not much service but people are friendly there... typical small shop atmosphere. if you sit at the back of the shop, you sit with the pigs... hanging around roasted or waiting for being roasted... actually not only the bbq pork are good... the chicken, roasted duck are also great. highly recommended!!!

There's an article posted on the window of this shop where Anthony Bourdain says the suckling pig brings you close to heaven. It was pretty good although I'm not a real fan of suckling pig. Lung Kee, does, however, have heavenly char siu-- slightly charred but not burnt, and slightly sweet but not overly so.

This little gem in Central on Hong Kong Island is a classic. The quality of the pork, which is all cared for and barbequed carefully on-site, is superb. Juicy, tasty, delicious. It's a very old-fashioned Hong Kong eatery, so certainly not a restaurant as such, but what a great place to get a taste and feel for the real Hong... More

Been coming here since 2004 and its one of the best places to have BBQ pork.. I've tried many places in HK but this is simply the best. I bring friends and family whenever I can. Friendly service and great food.

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.
