Found this place through Open Rice and we were not disappointed. The taxi driver gave us the 'are you sure you wanna go there?' look and was laughing while driving. Definitely worth the trip on a rainy night. The duck and roast pork were very good and you'll end up lining up the next day :)

The place is smack right in between Wan Chai and Causeway Bay. So prepare to walk a few blocks from either Causeway Bay or Wan Chai.

The char siu here is very tender and juicy, one of the best I ever tasted. It has its mix of fat, meat and the most important the char-ed fat. :P

Come here before lunch time or the place will be packed! Remember that you will be sharing tables with some locals, ask them for help if you don't know how to order. Or just remember to order the basics

I live in Wanchai and come here often. So this review for all those who are looking for a local experience at a great price. Yes, it is famous for the BBQ Pork and it is delicious. The owners are proud of the home made sauce and they should be, it keeps everyone coming back. Be prepared to wait during lunchtimes, like all the other reviewers say. I use this place whenever I have a crowd coming for dinner, and not enough time to cater, a big pack of BBQ Pork always proves popular and I grab a couple of the chickens, Hainan style and Soy Chicken, I always ask for ginger and onion sauce as I love this just on rice....Then pop around to Panash Bakery for mini profiteroles topped with chocolate and filled with fresh cream, Done! Vote with your feet, it is well worth the trek. Catch any bus stopping on Hennessy road, so does the tram, and it is a short walk along Hennessey Road from Wan Chai MTR, so very easy to access. Just know that it is actually on Stewart Road, around the cnr.....I have seen many people standing at the crosswalk trying to find it.

Food is pretty good. Succulent roast pork, juicy roast goose goodness, fresh vegetables... but the restaurant is tiny and jam-packed during lunch. Moreover, the hectic frenzy made us have the fastest meal in our lives! A lot of the patrons just order at the entrance and take their lunches and eat somewhere else, which is what I suggest you do. Still worth the trip and experience!
