If you're seeking the traditional cart-style dim sum with giant chandeliers, proper silverware, and a great harbor view, I think the original Maxim's is still a great spot. It's not the most innovative dim sum, but every item is solid and service is quick. There will be a wait on weekends but the line moves pretty fast.

We love Yum Cha, and figured we had to find somewhere high quality whilst visiting Hong Kong. We were not dissapointed by Maxim's Palace. It was hard to find, hidden away inside the concert hall building up on level two. Even more confusing is that there is a different restaurant, Maxim's Cafe, on level one.

It was worth th effort to find this place, the dim sum was the best I've ever eaten. The ladies pushing the carts were helpful and they had English descriptions printed on the carts.

I'd highly recommend to any dim sum lovers visiting Hong Kong, especially for somewhere English friendly.

We came from ifc and followed trip advisors map. We walked and walked and kept on walking and couldnt find it. We ended up in a small building called city gallery. Asked the receptionist where it was then: bam! It was inside the gallery! Just such a weird place to put a restaurant in.. Aside from that, since we arrived around 4pm.. They said they only served dimsun from 9am to 3pm. So there. We ended up with aching feet and bo char siu. Soooo frustrating?

A bit hard to find but worth the effort! It's actually upstairs inside the City Hall building. Lovely views of the harbour, a massive room with chandeliers and very attentive waitresses. The Dim Sum was lovely we especially liked the vegetarian dumplings, Pork buns & coconut jelly.

I like the ambience best. very spacious for HK. Beautiful harbour view. The only downside is they don't take reservation. I usually waited around 30mins for a table.
