Not quite the same as before....

Dimsum, especially the steamed fried rice, has always been a must eat everytime I am in cebu, somehow... it's just not as tasty as it was before??? The steamed fried rice, was still pretty good, but was not steaming hot anymore, the siomai and other side dishes like lumpia and fried wonton, they... read more

If you are craving for an excellent Chinese Food and you happen to be on a tight budget, then Harbour City Dimsum is the place to go. We ate at Harbour City, SM City Cebu. The place is big, the staff are very friendly and accommodating, however their rice was serve late. My friend has already finished eating the vegetable... More

I visited the new Harbor CIty Dimsum location at SM Seaside City...and will not return. Dimsum or Chinese teatime snacks are typically delicious morsels of food full of flavor and delicate in taste. This establishment has has dumbed down what should be tasty cuisine into fast food filler. This marketers concept to take an authentic Chinese dimsum joint and provide... More

This is a very popular Dimsum restaurant, and it is a couple of years since I last visited. Itwould seem as though some standards have droppedvice seemed slower than I previously remember, The Siomai were tasty, but rice dishes were not that special. I love chinese food, but this was just average.

I didn't expect that I will have a good food experience in this place. But I misjudged them. I went out in this restaurant with good satisfying food experience.

There are lots of dimsum choices here in Harbour City. Service, well... a little below par. You have to wait for the cart to come your way to be able to order extra food or anything. Prices are affordable but watch out for how many dimsums you've consume because you might be a little shocked on your bill. Food is... More

The most delicious Chinese food. You must try their steamed rice, spring rolls, and quail's egg siomai. I have eaten from this restaurant for years, and I have tried other Chinese restaurants. Nothing comes close, be it Chowking or Grand Majestic. This is definitely the best Chinese restaurant in the Philippines.

We went here because it was recommended by an officemate.But, I can't see any recommendable aspect after eating here. I only appreciated the siomai dishes. The Hakaw coating is very weird although the shrimp inside is delicious. The fried rice is nothing special.The steamed rice is very soaked and tastes bland. The choco banana shake tastes weird because of the... More

We arrived early in Cebu and thought of eating at Harbour City for breakfast. We were excited because we were so hungry but to our dismay, they only serve 4-5 dishes during morning! Not too much option as well as most of the dishes were pork and beef.
