The high quality and low priced dim sum makes it worth the wait. Don't think of Michelin star rated restaurants as high end restaurants. One of the key selling point of Tim Ho Wan is the fact that they use hotel standard ingredients and skills to make dim sum but sold at a fraction of the price. Presentation of the food may not be five-star but if you had have enough dim sum around, you can taste the refinement in the food. This is what makes Tim Ho Wan stand out.

We waited in queue for almost 1.5hours for our first (of 3) visit to this place. The hype for this place is quite evident by the clientele outside the restaurant - and we have to say we were impressed! Food arrived promptly after we were seated and the pork bun is exactly what it is cracked up to be - great tasting food that is easy on the wallet! Have since been to another two locations we found it to be consistently good. Great food at even better prices!

We were fortunate enough to not have a wait at Tim Ho Wan, and were seated 1-2 minutes after our arrival (made even more surprising given it was 10:30 AM on a Saturday). It took some time to get our food, but the wait was definitely worth it. We definitely over-ordered, but everything we tried tasted fantastic. In the end, our total for 2 people was ~170HKD (a little over $20USD). Even the cab driver was surprised the prices were so low. The service was standard for what we got in Hong Kong. Nothing special, but we came there for the food anyway.

Be sure to order the Gluttinous Rice -- this was the best thing we had in HK, even compared to other Dim Sum restaurants that served the same dish.

Worth the visit for sure!

We went to this branch twice and both times we didn't have to wait, it was about 2/3 pm. The food was very delicious and very very cheap. I didn't give 5 stars because of the horrible lady working there. But I would definitely come back again.
