Four of us went to the original Mongkok store on a weekday afternoon and lined up for an hour to get in, with the thoughts of a pilgrimage in mind. The food was just okay. This place has been blown way out of proportions by Michelin. This is the problem with judging Chinese food with western (French?) standards by a mostly non-Chinese panel. I think Michelin should stop messing with other cuisines and just stick with what they know. I looked at their Hong Kong list and see a lot of holes through it. Tim Ho Wan still makes their dim sum on site (I don't know if that is still true now that they have expanded to IFC), which is good, as compared to a lot of other restaurants that serve factory made stuff. But it is still just okay, nothing special. It is not worth lining up on an exhaust filled street for an hour, sit at a cramped table shared with strangers, drink awful tea, and endure the rushed and unfriendly service.
