Have read all the good comments so give it a go to take out two cups of milk tea. They filled over half cup of ices, it was hardly to taste the " fragrance / flavour of milk tea" since all the taste have been washed out by ice water.

Yet, it charged HK$18 per cup, which is £2 but taste light and lack of flavour.

Should it was like it said had 50 years historic and good reputation, I hope they would remained the honest business trick to continue develop.

One of the best Char Chan Teng this trip to Hong Kong that I have found.

Love their French Toast with butter(奶油包).Really crispy toast with butter that can melt in your mouth. Best with honey and syrup on the toast as well.
You can wash this down with their signature Milk Tea. I opted for the iced milk tea due to the weather and it was just as nice.
Great combination of tea with milk without it being diluted by the ice.

Finally we shared a pork chop bun and it was one of the tastiest we ever had.

This little local coffee shop is very close to the mid levels escalator. It is crowded and be prepared to share your table with others.

Famous for its silky cold milk tea. It is a great thirst quencher during the Summer.

We ordered the chicken with noodles, pork with noodles, and pork bun. Very delicious.

Total cost for two noodle dishes, a pork bun, and two milk tea=116 HKD. Quite reasonable for lunch.

Chanced upon this tiny hole in the wall after a failed attempt at goose (they ran out at Yung kee) and liked it so much we were back the next day. Tea was amazing, French toast fried and delicious, and chicken chop noodles tossed in spring onion mix was good. I loved the food and the atmosphere. Yes, you get bumped as people squeeze by you. You must obey very order to sit at designated seats and even take specific routes to get there or the auntie waitress will glower at you. But it was worth every glare and elbow in the side. I would go back for tea, French toast and noodles. Oh and my friend adored the pork chop bun. She had to be physically restrained from ordering one the second day because we had so much food already. Go for a great authentic HK experience. Try to get someone who understands Cantonese to order for you or who at least can react quickly by pointing to pictures. Slow reactions just do not cut it here.

Tucked away off Lyndhurst Terrace (or tell the cab driver "pai fah kai') is a ye old HK coffee shop service tea with milk ('lai cha'). A must try is the pork chop noodle and also the pork burger. Do be prepared for cramped conditions and the place is always crowded and you will need to share tables. But the food makes it all worth the hunt to get to the place and the ambience is authentic HK. One of the local eating experiences to have.
