We went here courtesy of our friend who is HK Chinese. The food was delicious, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the value for money incredible! We had mountains and mountains of food for 3 people and the bill came to 251 HK $. It was a whole HK experience. A great place to have Yum Cha.

Very busy on weekends. Share a table if you have a small group. Dim-Sum is fresh but the trolleys don't go around the large hall as much as they should. Better if you self-serve.

Be prepared for some noise. As all good yum cha places are loud with the talking, this restaurant is one of the top for talking over tea. A favourite for many many years and still going strong. The chicken claws in black bean and chili are very good. More famous than their har gau. Can be a bit of a... More

Location : It is by the main road, Nathan road . Kind of obvious and you would miss it. Food : They do have wide variety however the food are average. Services : Most of the staff are middle aged, so do expect "less customer service attitude" Ambiences : Well, it is a dim sum restaurant and there are lots... More

We were there on a Sunday at lunchtime after we finished shopping at Langham Place. It is located right on Nathan Road within walking distance. We were lucky enough to get a table as soon as we arrived unexpectedly. A wide selection of menu to choose from with a cart with dim sum coming to customers' tables from time to... More

the service was good and you can always tell if a chinese restaurant is good if there is a lot of Chinese people there we had the suckling pig and it was so good that we had to order another plate of it. even though they could speak a little bit of english they still got the orders right.

VERY large and lively dim sum restaurant in Kowloon. Ordering dim sum is a bit chaotic though. You can cross some dishes on a form, but there are also trolleys with food to choose from. It took us some time to make clear what we wanted, because not everybody in the restaurant speaks English (and that's an understatement). Service efficient... More

We found this place through this site as we were searching for a hood reataurant to have dinner on this part of the city. Food was good, servings, serving time and presentation was good. The only difficult thing though is to communicate with their hostess, we had a hard time ordering the food we want as they don't speak english... More

It is one of the few tim sum restaurants that has push carts carrying a variety of tim sum. It is located along nathan road at mongkok ladies martket area, just opposite the grand plaza. A very localised place with lots of old folks despite the name itself. Like the carrot cake, cheong fun, chicken feet and siew mai. For... More

Fascinating that's it's named the London as they only serve dim sum. With a long history of being a dim sum tea house, many regulars, particularly older hong kongers frequent the establishment. Service is typical of Hong Kong so if you're looking for something more, look elsewhere. The food and price are fairly good though.

Thank ESJ83
