Well I can see why it gets a Michelin star the dim sum is amazing without being pretentious about it. It's just straight up good food. The pork dim sum was a particular highlight but it's all good. Watch out though you may have to que to get in so try and go at off peak times. However you won't regret it. Also it's excellent value with each dish being very reasonable priced, you just have to resist the urge to buy too many.

I have now been here several times and everytime the food is fresh, tasty and delicious! This is one of my favorite places in Hong Kong. The atmosphere might not be much to talk about but the service is good and the food is ALWAYS delicious.

This Hong Kong piece of the successful, now international, Din Tai Fung chain of restaurants, probably wasn't where the much-touted Michelin Star was awarded

It was good, but is a big somewhat sterile big barn of a place, I reckon seating around 300.
At peak periods crowds line up to get in, at other times such as the 4.00pm when we recently visited, there were few diners and it was very simple to get a table.
.
Service was outstanding, food very good, prices up there for dim sum, complimentary Chinese tea as you are seated (but you have to pay for refills).

A highlight is to watch from the foyer outside, the white-clad teams of staff cranking out thousands of wontons, dumplings and whatever. It is a show in itself. AND FREE !!!

We've been to the other HK Michelin Star restaurant, the hole-in-the wall Tim Ho Wan, and we think that, if you can get in, that it is a more interesting restaurant to visit.

Being here for a week we had to go for a serious Dim Sum place.. This was highly recommended. Is it? Hmmmm... I thought it was pretty bland, as in, most of the dim sums kind of tasted the same. We had about five different dishes and none of them blew me away. Staff is very kind and what is quite nice is that while you wait for your table you can see them preparing the dim sums. They seem to take quite a lot of time to make them, all I can say is that they might be little too much on auto pilot. Oh, the bathroom is two floors up and was a complete disgrace.
