We were delighted to visit Lin Heung Tea House again, remembering our last visit fondly for authentic Chinese food at affordable prices. The interior looks much the same as it did years ago when we first visited, and the waiters still don't speak English, adding...More

Clearly, we were amongst locals here. That being said, we were made to feel very welcome. Alas, the purpose of the initial hot water (for washing your bowl/chopsticks) was lost in translation. We were instructed, via pantomime from our tablemates, about techniques to secure choice...More

Whether you like this place or not. It's fun and ignoring place to be. Not much service, you go fight for your food. Pick what you like. We pickup the traditional tea serving style and it's dark and tasty. The dim sum is average but...More

To all foreigners and tourists.. avoid this place. The food is below average, and the mad rush to get food (you don’t get served dim sum) is as if you are in a prison cell. Worst experience ever and would never return to this place...More

Top place for dim sum and very authentic they only speak limited English which adds to the fun . Great dim sum and it’s proper hong kong here with not many westerners inside. Cheap prices too .

Certainly no culinary experience but a taste for the other senses all the same!! Noisy, tea splashed everywhere and a race to the dim sum trolley cart as soon as it came out of the kitchen! Not for the faint hearted and probably much better...More

No Reservations. We went around 10 AM on a Friday and it was busy, but not packed. As 2 people we didn't have to wait. You should expect to sit with other parties at most, if not all, restaurants in Hong Kong. Also I... More

This is a Cantonese style restaurant, they do not have Xiao long bao, just the usual dim sum, if you are there at busy hour, during lunch, many item maybe sold out.
