Xiao long bao par excellence

We went to the IFC branch and were there early to avoid the ques which was perfect. Having a Cantonese speaker along was helpful. The food was fresh, delicious, authentic...a bit of a sense of hurry so no lingering after your meal here...i love this place!

Pretty average food and had to chase the waitress more than once. Not somewhere I would visit again and expensive for what it was.

Lunch for two. Very good selection of vegetables and really fresh. Down to business, excellent pigeon, dumplings were equally tasty, soups were solid. Its fast ad the service isnt. 5 star but it does what its supposed to with a reasonable price tag.

There are several branches of this restaurant chain in Hong Kong. Our habitual visits are to the one in the large arrival hall of Hong Kong International airport, or the branch on the first floor of the IFC shopping mall. At the airport, we check in early and head straight there for a soul-warming meal before taking a flight. The... More

the soup dumplings here satisfied my craving. Not the best (best are in Taipei!), but still good. Also, quick and very inexpensive.

Sited in an up-market shopping centre, this is very popular with the locals (generally a good sign) and we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Simple, almost Spartan décor. Chinese tapas style, with a selection of dishes from which to choose. Chinese tea freely available, with beer the alcohol option. The dim sum dishes were tasty, although some... More

I come here every week, and the food is always amazing. Up until my last visit (last week) I noticed that the food portions had shrunk, by a lot. I'm estimating a roughly 40% shrinkage in the meals. Though the service is great and they can speak a little english. (Just enough to get my order and maybe order some... More

One of my saved list of restaurants here in HK, basically all for their spicy wonton and chicken noodles, but since they have expanded to many locations now, the quality did suffer a little bit. I hope they don't over expand and able to keep up with the authenticity!

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.
