Not a terrible tart but it’s not a good flaky one. The crust is “short “ ? Not impressed. Bought one of their delicious looking sugar puffs too- too greasy. Are they handling the volume from their social media success? I wouldn’t buy here again...even at half price.More

There are plenty of good food within 5 mins of the store. Its slightly inconvenient to get to the store, but i strongly recommend going there for the egg tarts and fried donuts if you are in the area.

Popped in as we were close by and I wanted to see what the fuss was. I’ve had egg tarts in HK but the ones we bought as a family growing up here had the puff pastry as the base. I was disappointed to see...it was shortcrust but still, if it’s that good then that’s not a problem. Overall it was a pleasant enough tart but personally I prefer the other pastry, it’s much more delicate. We also bought a coconut tart and that was downright awful. As dry as could be, “nil point” for that one . Would I come again? No. Better egg tarts at more local/traditional bakeries and at a cheaper price.More

The egg tarts here are fine but nearly double the price of those found in Kowloon, which are equally delicious. The advantage is that they have a nice gifting box you can put egg tarts into that make a nice gift for friends back home....The shop atmosphere is also cute. Right next door is a top rated Candy Shop, so a visit to both would be enjoyable.More

Wanted to try one of the famous tarts, so we stopped in here after lunch as we were walking around central. Delicious, fresh and tasty tart. Make sure you stop by!

Always a treat to have an egg tart in Hong Kong. Tai Cheong has been a tradition in Central. Nowadays it can be crowded with tourists. Worth the wait though....

We went there by foot despite the rain outside, luckyly our effort is paid. We bought their famous egg tart.I like the cake, not too sweet not too buttery.Just my taste. We also bought another cake, I dont know the name,but we usually call it...Pia. The outer layer is crispy and inside there is a green/redbeen filling with egg yolk inside. We dont bother taking the picture, because we ate them rightaway while waiting for the rain to stop.More

Ahhhh after all the hype of reading the reviews here, we went to Tai Cheong to get our fix of egg tarts. We were there on Saturday after our visit to Dr Sun Yat Tsen museum. Not a very long queue. Probably took less than...10 minutes for our turn. We bought an egg tart each. I thought the crust was too sweet like I could taste the sugar bits. The filling itself was great. Overall, if you're nearby and you love egg tarts, OK go for it. Otherwise maybe don't make a trip just for this.More

Not only are the products themselves unimpressive, but the prices are incredibly inflated for the less than stellar offerings. Definitely not worth a detour or a wait in line.

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
