“I'd like to like this place more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We typically take visitors here as it almost fits the bill as a great local dim sum restaurant. To be honest, though its always slightly disappointing. Th dim sum is pretty good. The decor is traditional (and so rather handsome). The air con on way too high (not that that is unusual).

The main issue for me is the service. Its relatively friendly, just slightly incompetent. On our most recent visit the dim sum came in batches and then stopped. We waited a while and then the lady came to clear the table. We pointed out we hadn't had all the dishes and they looked blank walked off and eventually a couple more arrived. All in all there was a gap in the middle of the meal of 30-40 mins and no apology. Then as we ate the stragglers the staff started to rearrange the furniture, collect crockery in a sink bowl etc which killed the atmosphere.

Its a shame as this place could be great if it smartened up its act a little.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

I live near by to here so we often go here for dim sum at dinner time...it is always good...I worry about the shark fin all over the menu and that would be the only thing to put me off..the dumplings and the pork buns are yum

“Best Dim Sum in HK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We have been going to this restaurant for many years but recently the chef retired and the restaurant went through a metamorphosis with a new chef taking over. Its now back and I can say that the food is as good as ever. The menu has changed slightly with some of our favourites not being there any more but there are quite a few new varieties to tempt our palate. We've been back twice now and will be going back regularly as you can never get enough Dim Sum!

I heard that it re-opend recently? So, will have to check out the new place. In the past it was among the best places in HK to enjoy dim sum.

“Reopened: Dim Sum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Dim Sum House is back! Reopened with a brighter, cleaner, polished look and younger chef. Same great dim sum and friendly staff. Now, I can have my regular Dim Sum fix right at my door step...well, next street really!
It's on 63 Sing Woo Rd., Happy Valley (opposite Brown's). Arrive at 11.00 to ensure a table on Sundays.
