It can be hard to find this branch, but it’s worth it. We ended up just asking someone in the MTR station. Food was great, service quick. There’s an English menu to order from. It’s a bit cramped and tables are shared, but that didn’t...More

We went to this restaurant on a sunday round 13.00, we were seated immediately. We got the pork bbq bun (100% recommend), noodles with pork, spring rolls and dumplings. All was very delicious and with 2 drinks for a total of 150 HKD.

We took the high speed rail to HK, this was the first lunch, definitely a great experience. First we had our personal guide so easily found the place, without her that would be mission impossible. We also waited about 20mins to get a table. Once...More

I must admit: it took me a while before I found this place. I ended up googling "why can't I find Tim Ho Wan Central?" and ending up on Tripadvisor, where people explained how to get there! My tip: make sure you search for it...More

Definitely get the baked pork buns, they were delicious. The other items on the menu were all nice but not as good as some other dim sum places we had been in HK. Service very abrupt and restaurant difficult to find in the shopping centre/train...More

I am a local and I feel so bad when I witness how the staff treat the customers, when I found most of them are tourists! The nightmare started when you queue. It is obviously lots of seats available but the “security lady” need to...More

Went here early during the day when they've just opened and they were already full! Menu was straight forward and ordered everything we wanted. Ordered food came one after the other and was very satisfied with the quality,quantity and price. Everything exceeded expectations and even...More

As a local Cantonese in Hong Kong, Tim Ho Wan (Central) is my preferred dim sum restaurant with high quality and very good taste. It's somewhat like a fast food restaurant which expects the customers not staying long but just go after finished the foods...More

If you are craving for dimsum. Tim Ho Wan won’t fail you. Though the que might change your mind, I tell you it’s definitely worth it! Either go before they open or late in the afternoon for lesser que.

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
