Finding a place to sit here is not easy. Getting food here is not easy. But that may well be the point as when you do achieve a basket of steamed goodness you are warmed with the glow of the successful hunter and head back...More

We found two chairs at one of the big round tables and the waiter was very helpful. You do not order food here but you get it from the trays that are brought in from the kitchen. Food is very freshly prepared. We recommend the...More

From the environment to the food, everything was very much from olden days. Old carts are pushed around and you can see people rushing to grab their food. If you are slow, the food is gone. That is reasonable enough as the food was simply...More

It’s one of the oldest tea house in Hong Kong. It’s full of nostalgic memories of how tea were served in the 1950’s. The dim sum, however, is only average.

What a great place for Dim Sum. Hugely busy, so be prepared to be squeezed in on a table with a group of others. The tables are all large (seat about 8-12). Dim Sum is still served from carts. It is a bit rough around...More

Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts,
Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going,
relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and
boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in
the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the
vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores –
it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area.
