If a tourist friend wants a causal authentic Hong Kong cuisine, that's where I will take him/her. That's real Hong Kong style where local eats. & It's tasty at very affordable price. The ambience is the "real HK" (like Chinatown, it's noisy). You will be amazed many investment bankers of HK go there regularly. (It's the Denny's of HK, as quoted by another review.)
Set lunch (soup+main+tea/coffee) comes at @US$9-10.
But if u r tourist & time is limited, go for the chef recommendations. Order the a-la-carte items c/o the picture menu on your own. The waiters may speak little english but they are very smart to understand yr sign languages.
All top 10 items are great. @US$ 5-15
DRINK: @US$ 2-3
Try out the coffee (hot or cold) & tea (both w/ milk). It's quite a change if u r a Starbucks regulars. The unique taste come from a mixture of various teas/ coffee beans + extra herbs. This is a colonial product evolving for a century. Initially, the Brits bring in the English tea & coffee. But Chinese found them too weak. So instead, they increase the intensity + add extra herbs to bring out the flavor stronger & better.
There's a piece of paper card the waiter will slide under yr table. That's yr bill. Just take the paper card out & pay at cashier on the way out. Tips left at cashier tips box is fine. Tips is purely discretionary in HK (many restaurants in HK charge 10% service charge on top).
Some shops are 24hr & one can go after midnight. Avoid Hong Kong lunch break times (for tourist) which is 1230-1400 (Mon-Fri).
