The dim sum dishes are really delicious. The waiters are very attentive and you don't wait long to be served. The serving is getting smaller though. Nothing much to say except that it's a great place to eat dim sum.

I know I wrote the first time not to eat here, but my friends love the place, so I went along again with them. I asked myself immediately, Why?? The visit was identical to the last time, tables left uncleared, inordinate times of waiting to be seated, orders taken and then food delivered. Lots of finger clicking and hand clapping... More

I like the table sharing manner of the dimsum food traditions. I enjoy the food and chat with the people surround. It is not tricky to use the chopsticks. Dimsum food is a way to allow you integrate what you eat and how you eat. I like to observe how people eat in their ways.

If you are a lover of authentic oriental meals this you must not miss, the array is great and the costs are bearable. More is that you can mix and match what you want when you are with a bunch of friends which gives you more variety.

After a 30mins evening flight from Manila my boyfriend and I are starved to the bones. We rode the Multicab and looked for the nearest stretch of restaurants we can find. This might be our first time in Cebu but we were already told of a couple restaurants that we've just got to try. One of them is Harbor City... More

I never miss eating at Harbour City every time i visit Cebu, which is 2-3 times in a year. It always has a distinct taste that I don't find in other dimsums. I know they're always busy and crowded, that's why it helps a lot if you go early to reserve a table.

Just popped in at lunch time for a couple of dishes to keep us going. It's not the smartest restaurant in Cebu but not expensive in my opinion. I found the staff to be attentive, quick, and friendly. The dim sum was fine, as was the fried rice. But the Steamed Chicken Aaargh! Don't think I'll go again.
