Tried various venues over last few years and now i believe the quality control is not there any more. I don't think it is worth it to wait on line anymore. There are more single outlet shanghai dumpling and noodle places in HK that do better quality food.

We have to wait 20min to have table. Delicious beef lamien. Must eat xiao long bau. Good service. Very easy find the place in Harbour City. See the Map in Harbour City. Because the mall is very big. Just follow the sign.

Ate here about 3 or 4 times during a recent trip to Hong Kong. I'm not an expert on Chinese food, but the food never lets me down. However, the service can be especially slow if you go during "busy" hours. Great value, however!

This is a restaurant whose unfailing consistency keeps me coming back. Exquisite Xiao Long Bo (Shanghainese dumplings) are as good if not better than the much heralded Din Tai Fung restaurants. The soups and noodles are smashingly devine. Nice staff with killer views to the island (ask for a window seat!)

Go for the soup filled dumplings We got it wrong the first time until someone explained the protocol. Lift the dumpling carefully onto the spoon without breaking. Bite a small piece and suck the soup out before devouring the rest. My colleague had the fermented rice dessert - not reccomended. Can get busy, so be prepared for a wait, but... More

I first noticed this place because there was a long line of customers waiting in front of the restaurant. I could not wait so I went back the next day as soon as the restaurant opened. I was not disappointed as the food was good, price reasonable and service was good. The "xiao long bao" was excellent as well as... More

Service is below par... but its worth the wait. It's a delicious little treat of a place in IFC thats great for a Goodbye/Stopover eat to get some great dumplings in. Does it have the best food in HK? No, but its price is worth it. Great for even the budget backpacker who's looking for a filling meal. Never disappointing... More

I have been to a couple of these spots in HK- the one at Admiralty and most recently the one in Times Square. I had 3 dishes which were very tasty, arrived quickly and were very good value. The pork dumplings (xiao long bao)are a must have- I could have eaten 2 more orders of them alone! I also had... More

I have been here a few times. This time was by far the most disappointing. As another reviewer said, my previous experiences have been really good so I may give them another shot or two. The wonton in chili sauce is really good. The pan fried dumplings and xiao long bao (the “shanghai dumplings” which have the soup inside) were... More

Dined at 530pm to avoid any queue for our family. The dumpling noodle soup was still stellar, as well as radish pastry. Xiao long bao's taste was excellent but kept falling apart. Drunken chicken not available. Beef part of double boiled soup had no marbling. Braised pork appeared to have been cooked two hours earlier. Many 'buts' this time, however,... More
