Nostalgia par excellence

The Long Wa is a very traditional Cantonese "yum cha" restaurant. Quite a lot of people come here because of the art deco that reminds us what a Cantonese tea house was in the 1960s. One could regard it as a living museum. The place opens up to 2pm only.

If you are looking for old town feel and traditional dim-sum place, don't miss this place. Lung Wah Tea House is located next to the 'red color market', it is a very traditional building. They don't serve many many varieties of dim sum, but still serve you standard types of dim-sum, like bbq buns, shrimp dumplings, Siu Mai dumplings, beef... More

The dishes a bit pricy or this imply to all Macau? Dim sum is at the side, self service, quite different from Hong Kong. I don't really think the food is nice, but the price is high...they charge service fee also ..... However, the staff are friendly so I'm find with it. I kind of scared of Hong Kong style... More

Good food, good place, good decoration, good Chinese tea, but no service (you have to take the food by yourself) and little bit over price! Can try one time, just for experience!

Just opposite to the art decor "red market", another traditional corner architecture for this gem. Tiled stairwell, iron framed window all speak of history. Opt for the more expensive tea, definitely worthwhile. Dim Sum variety is limited but has traditional flavors. Part of the experience is also listening into the conversation around you. Frequent haunt of the local retirees, so... More

Most younger generation may go to a Cantonese tea house or restaurant in Hongkong ,Macau and even in Guangzhou,ordering some dimsum or cuisines which they think that they are Contonese food. In fact, most of them are not the original or typical ones.. When entering into Long Hua Tea House,immediately you will have the classic feel. Square un-armed chairs,square tables... More

Have been here few times...Chicken rice is a must eat here and you must try it by ordering single portion and make sure the chicken is served together with the rice (not separately). If you can stomach everything then try both. Yummy and yummy! That the only thing I will go for in this restaurant. The dim sum was just... More

Long Wa is an authentic Chinese tea house, virtually having all the characters you expect in the old days except the caged birds which are no longer allowed these days. You could soak up the atmosphere. Unlike other traditional Chinese restaurants such as Tak Yu restaurant in Yau Ma Tei (Hong Kong), the boss and staff at Long Wa were... More

Real authentic tea house in a old building with old furniture. Visualize cabin like benches, wrought iron window grill and "aged" waiter and waitresses......nothing to shout about the food. Coming from Malaysia and living in Australia where the dim sum choices is as long as a scroll, this tea house has limited choices. The BBQ pork bun had only a... More
