“Upmarket Chinese Restaurant: great food, service and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Serenade (Maxim's) is located in the Cultural Centre in Tsim Tsa Tsui. It is on the waterfront and easily accessed via the Star Ferry. The restaurant has excellent views of Hong Kong Harbour. The food is very good and elaborately presented. We ate there everyday and sometimes twice a day. It is important to book during busy times but if you get in early (10 am) you can just walk in.

“A nice local Dim Sum place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

If you want to ear Dim Sums like the locals do then head to Serenade on the Kowloon side near the star ferry. An excellent choice of dim sums, steamed, fried, baked for all tastes. If you do not know what to order, go for the sampler plate which will give you a taste of everything. Then re order what you like best. If you are not full after the dim sums, an excellent array of traditional chinese dishes. Try the BBQ pork, the pecking duck and their excellent fresh vegetables.
A good selection of wines is also available. A truly good experience if you want to avoid the 5 stars hotels

“NIce, maybe too nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

I was looking for a good place for yum cha and was directed to Serenade by the YMCA staff. It was a nice place, but a little uncomfortable for a meal alone. The food was great and a great way to try many different dishes.

“Great food with a Million dollar view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

Have had Yum Cha here for lunch before, so this was my first dinner. I found the menu a little confusing, the choices seem to be very involved. Being a fussy eater, it was hard to find something that I lied. However, in saying this, the menu is pretty awesome and elaborate for people unlike me. The prices for mains were very reasonable and the meals when they arrived were very good. I had the Noodle soup with ham, which was awesome! Above all of this is ofcourse the view. There is no view better than this. If you compare the price of the food, to the view, there is a major disparity, in a good way. The meals, no entree, for the three of us including drinks was only HK$325 or AUD$39, which in Australia is un heard of.
Definitely worth a visit.

“Good Dim Sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

We had a beautiful view of the harbour from our table. Not traditional Dim Sum with the trolleys but it was delicious and reasonably priced.
