“Used to be better”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I first started patronizing this restaurant before it moved to its current location. Back then, they had english menus for dim sum with blown up pictures, and needless to say, their dim sum was excellent, especially their liu sha bao.

Sad to say, I've been back here twice and the second time seemed more disappointing than the first. They no longer had english dim sum menus, and worse, the dim sum pictures are now shrunk to a size that I can no longer recognize what some of the dishes are. Their liu sha bao, which they were suppose to be famous for, had no custard or sauce in it; it was literally dry!

However, dishes such their fried rice with abalone sauce and century egg fish soup were still delicious and really tasty, as well as a few of their dim sum dishes.

Prince used to be one of my favourite restaurants and my family didn't mind paying because of the great food they served, now it seems the food they serve is at best average when compared to the many great restaurants in Hong Kong.

“Grossly Overpriced”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

For US$25, I got a cup (not bowl) of Hot and Sour soup and a serving of dimsum. The soup was thin, the dimsum was okay.

Even by the standards of Hong Kong, this was pretty exorbitant.

“Hong kong Chinese”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Felt rushed when ordering, eating and in general felt like staff were watching our every move. That maybe due to us being in early or wanting to impress but we were looking for relaxing Chinese feed on our first night in HK. Food was enjoyable and tasty. Price a little more than I expected. probably try others before heading back

“Extremely Expensive”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We had planned to dine in a nearby restaurant which unfortunately was closed for the evening. We saw this one and decided to try it. There is no menu or anything to indicate the price outside. We were quite surprised that the restaurant was almost empty for a Saturday evening but soon discovered why. When seated we discovered that the cheapest banquet was 1,200 HK$ and the cheapest bottle of wine was 740 HK$, at which point we decided to leave.
The view was impressive.
We later checked on Trip Advisor it appears that we made the correct decision to go elsewhere for a meal.
