The unassuming surrounds of the basement of a shopping mall is not where one might expect to find a Michelin starred restaurant but that is exactly where one can find one of the several outlets of this little gem. We arrived at the slightly odd...More

Extremely overrated! The steamed vegetables was soggy lettuce! The Turnip cake was not very tasty at all! Yes it’s cheap! But being from the UK and travelling and experiencing food all over Asia! This meal was extremely average, poor quality. Service was not nice, they...More

Firstly the pork buns are great!!!! If you go here and eat pork, you must try them. The rest was nice and very good value for money but I do prefer Din Tai Fung still although it would be a bit more expensive. You certainly...More

Place was not easy to locate in the vast IFC building. It's located two levels below street level. Had to ask a couple of times for directions. You'll know it's the place when you see a line formed outside the restaurant. Don't worry the line...More

Having heard about this place we were prepared for the 40 minute wait standing in line, and that was at 2pm. Really liked the idea of a menu that you ticked off your choices as you waited, then handed that order to the waitresses as...More

Don't expect a fancy ambiance. Go for the food! It's amazing! You'll probably encounter a long line before being able to have a table, but don't get discouraged. The line moves fast. I went 2x and didn't wait for more than 25 min
